- Performing Exam Pieces From Memory: It is not mandatory to play your selected pieces by memory for the AMEB examiners. However, allowing students to have books or sheet music in front of them drives students to mental laziness. You will be taught to play independently of the books/sheet music and to perform at the exams playing pieces by memory without the books/sheet music.

If you would like lessons in your home for yourself or for your children, but you would like to save time by not travelling or you want to be productive while your child is having a lesson in your own home:

It is better to stop training while your child’s voice is breaking because it is like training with an inconsistent instrument. The results are unpredictable and it is frustrating and disheartening. Either have a break, or we can focus on things like music theory and/or sight reading that will help him in the future. We can still do solfeggios which will teach sight singing and pitch.
In terms of how long it takes for a child’s voice to become stable, I can’t answer this. For myself, it took approximately 3 months, but every person is different.
Unfortunately there are music schools that provide singing lessons for any children and are happy to put a child on stage or in public to sing when they are not ready, or with a song that does not match their vocal range. This is unfair.
Music must build a child or adult’s confidence and they must feel good about singing and feel good about making progress every week. Confidence is priceless and will carry over into everything else the student puts their mind on in life.
