Hi, I’m Joanne and I am the director here at the International School of Music, Morphett Vale. I love what we do here, and I would love to welcome you and your child to our school. Our school is different to others, in that it has a warm family feel. We like to know and care for each of our students individually. Our teachers get excited to see our students perform at our concert, move up to the next level, or receive their new book- we share in their joy. We have a small but dedicated network of teachers, who’s passion is helping children have a wonderful musical journey.
I have taught several methods at many different music schools and primary schools since 1999, but once I learnt the ISM method- I could never go back. I feel it is truly the best way for children to learn and understand music. The ISM system changed my whole approach to music education. I now watch our three year old students naming notes and reading rhythm- well before they can read and write words- and it just amazes me.
I invite you to come along and visit our classes, meet our teachers, and experience the quality of the ISM method for yourself.
