Born and raised in the Blue Mountains, Jillian has been playing the piano since she was four years old. Jillian was fortunate with her musical education studying with Jenny Hammond OAM, Lily Cowen (Theory), Igor Hmelnitsky, Brian Stanborough, and achieving the Early Childhood Music Certificate with the Yamaha Music Foundation. Jillian enjoys the many uplifting tonal colours of the piano and likes to relax in her own time either playing or listening to music. More recently, Jillian has provided entertainment for fundraisers, community plays and to add the finishing touch to a special event or occasion.
Jillian is passionate about learning and teaching the piano, and believes in lifelong learning, continuing her own musical education at UWS while teaching students ranging in age from 4 to 94. Should you wish to undertake exams or perhaps just enjoy the pleasure of the piano, you will be supported in whatever musical path you desire for either yourself or your child, regardless of age.
