Ashlee Prewer

Voice & Piano Teacher

Music has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Originally from Launceston I began piano lessons as a young child and from there my love for all things music grew.
Throughout my schooling years, whilst completing my piano grades I sang in choirs which led to numerous national and international tours.

I completed my Bachelor of Music in 2015 at age 21, majoring in contemporary voice.
Since completing my bachelor my primary focus has been on performing, both in musical theatre shows and solo gigs, and teaching. Prior to moving to Melbourne at the beginning of 2019, I was the assistant drama teacher through the St Giles organisation working with children and young adults with disabilities. I brought a lot of musical aspects into these classes as I aim to become a Music Therapist in the future.

I love passing on my knowledge and love of music through my teaching. I am proficient in an array of musical styles, with a very soft spot for musical theatre and jazz.

Testimonials

After one year of keyboard, we were pleasantly surprised how well Christy performed as part of a group in a lovely end of year concert. Christy found further motivation when I finally made time to squeeze in a few private lessons so that she could measure her progress by completing exams. The group and private lessons provide complementary outcomes, by creating a musician who wants to improve and who can play as part of a group. Cath has a caring approach, and there is no pressure to take on private lessons.

My daughter has been attending Kids on Key through our school for the last 4 years. In this time she has developed a love of music and fostered a wonderful relationship with her music teacher. Kids on Key has provided my daughter with a positive, fun and challenging music program. My daughter is excited to be partaking in her next ANZCA exam for piano this year and I am positive that her love of music and piano is because of the fantastic environment provided by Kids on Key.

My children have been learning keyboard for about 4 years with Kids on Key. I think it is a fantastic program, especially as these classes can be done around school times. My children have learned to read music as well as learn keyboard, both of which I truly believe helps to expand our children’s mind for many other areas of their life, similar to the benefits of learning another language, and Susan is just a wonderful teacher. The opportunity to further the education with exams and grading is there for the students that wish to pursue their instruments further.
