Sandra Lie Music Tuition :: Classical Acoustic Guitar | Piano | Private Group | Theory

About Me

My name is Sandra Lie and I'm a guitar, theory and piano teacher currently located in Sydney, NSW. With over 14 years of classical/acoustic guitar and classical/modern piano experience I offer lessons to both children and adults, and am very patient when working with beginners.

I also became involved in the music industry not only as a musician and teacher, but have worked in the music and entertainment business scene after I studied my Bachelor of Music at AIM (Australian Institute of Music) where I not only studied piano and guitar, but majored in Entertainment Management and Marketing. Since finishing my qualifications with the AMEB (Australian Music Examinations Board) in both classical guitar and classical piano, I went on to further my musical skills with contemporary/pop guitar and piano at AIM and have since performed in my own bands; The Guff and Oxford and Crown, as well as doing covers. Currently I'm playing synth and rhythm guitar for MonAnnLisa WIlde.

My experience as a musician has seen me perform with various people, venues, functions and events through-out Sydney. This includes a live performance with the Sydney Classical Guitar trio on Channel 10, the Hills Centre, Sydney Opera House, Metro, Sydney Conservatorium, outdoor festivals, weddings, restaurants, birthdays, corporate gigs, charity functions and much more.

My specialty is teaching students who want to play classical, pop, music theatre, jazz or a mixture of all styles. I work with both kids and adults, ages four and up. My formal training, patience and experience has allowed me to love teaching students of all ages.

In addition to teaching, I also get hired to arrange and perform music for singer-songwriters who are looking to have their melodies and lyrics completed and arranged.  

My approach is to teach you want you want to learn, and my philosophy in learning music is to ensure that it is fun, productive and educational. Learning any musical instrument no matter what age you are can feel awkward and foreign so it helps to have a teacher who'll want to make you feel confident and relaxed while you're learning.

  • Learn the songs you love - it's important before our initial lesson we talk about the music you like and would eventually like to play. I then design a course of study that will teach you the fundamentals of playing by teaching you the songs you'd most enjoy.
  • It's not too easy and it's not too hard - you're always going to be learning new things on your instrument and it's important to understand that building knowledge from the ground up requires patience and attention to progress. I make sure you learn A before I teach B
  • Progress with grades - no matter what age you are and what instrument you learn doing grades and sitting for annual exams to progress onto the next grade is a rewarding and highly educational approach to learning music. I ensure that students learn and practice according to the syllabus and are well prepared for when they sit for an exam, such as the AMEB. You'll feel confident that you will do well and so will I.
