Alida Konyn grew up in a small country town in South Australia where she began piano lessons at the age of 7. She started teaching beginner piano students while still in high school and now has over 7 years of experience working in schools and music studios. She is comfortable teaching a wide range of ages and ability levels; from young children to adults and beginners to advanced students. Alida passionately believes that students learn best when they find lessons engaging and enjoyable and are encouraged to achieve their own musical goals. She focuses on each individual’s needs and abilities and can teach classical or more contemporary styles, including guiding students through AMEB exams.
As well as teaching, Alida has also spent many years as a piano accompanist, working collaboratively with vocalists and instrumentalists in concerts, exams, and amateur musical productions.
In 2016, Alida completed a Bachelor of Music in Classical Performance at the Elder Conservatorium in Adelaide, as well as a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. She has managed to combine her passions for music and health and is currently in her final year of a Masters of Music Therapy at the University of Melbourne, moving interstate at the beginning of 2019 to focus more on her study and teaching.
Alida Konyn currently has lesson slots available on Thursdays at High Street Music Preston. Our music lessons service Melbourne’s northern suburbs including Preston, Ivanhoe, Heidelberg, Reservoir, Thornbury, Northcote, Bundoora, Coburg, Bellfield, Kingsbury, Fawkner, Thomastown and Lalor.
