Lian began playing the piano at 3yrs of age, formal lessons at age 4, and performed publicly for the first time at 8yrs. Lian completed AMEB Grades Preliminary to 8 by her early teens, and attended a specialist music High School before going on to study at the Elder Conservatorium of Music.  Lian holds first class Honours Degrees in both Piano Performance and Law, and is currently completing a Master of Performance Studies (Piano) at the Elder Conservatorium of Music. Lian has 20+ years experience.  Her teachers have included  Stefan Ammer, Konstantin Shamray, and significantly, her long term teacher and mentor, Lucinda Collins (Head of Keyboard, Elder Conservatorium).  Lian has also studied with eminent pianists/pedagogues in Europe such as Professor Karl-Heinz Simon ( Professor of Piano and Pedagogy, Hoschule fur Musik 'Carl Maria-von-Weber', Dresden, Germany), and from the Russian school, Professor Anna Malikova (distinguished Professor at the University for Music and Performing Arts, Vienna, Austria). Lian has recently returned from 5 weeks of performances and masterclasses in Europe, and is looking forward to sharing her experience with current and new students.


Lian is a full-time pianist and teacher, sharing her time between SAAOM's studios at Lockleys, and Stirling, Adelaide Hills.  Lian also teaches piano at the Open Music Academy at the Elder Conservatorium of Music so if you are looking for a central location and can't make it to the Hills or Lockleys, feel free to get in touch and she can direct you to the right people.


Lian is a patient and caring teacher who goes above and beyond for any student who wants to put the effort in. She offers individual, shared or group lessons and runs the Music for Little Mozarts course for 4yr olds, group beginner classes for school children, and adult group piano course. In addition to regular weekly lessons, Lian can also prepare students for AMEB exams, eisteddfods and conservatorium auditions.
