Hi there and welcome to ISM Northbridge, I’m Anika, the School Director and ISM Music Teacher.
A little bit about me…
I have enjoyed listening, dancing, singing and playing music since the age of 5. Whilst completing my Media & Audio Production degree at UTS, I also taught piano in group and private lessons at primary schools across Sydney’s Northern Beaches including, Avalon, Bilgola Plateau and St Rose Catholic. After graduating, I worked across many different areas of the music and sound industries including TV/Film sound editing, production music licensing, advertising, and performing in local Sydney music and acting gigs.
I play in an alternative rock band during the weeknights and weekends. It’s an amazing feeling being on stage and sharing your own compositions with others! That is why I love working with children, sharing my love of music so that they can one day do something with it, in whichever direction makes them happy.
My love of teaching music and piano has lead me down the track of opening a beautiful music school of my own in early 2017. We now have a thriving music community that is growing bigger and stronger every term. I’m so happy I get to make music accessible to so many different families. It’s truly an amazing asset to have and is an incredible creative outlet. I encourage everyone to add music to their lives, whether it’s listening or playing, it’s impacts on the brain are so immense.
Please pop in or drop me a note to say hi and learn more about our school.
