Thanks for visiting!

A & M is an established teaching partnership (30 years) of two experienced and enthusiastic musicians and music teachers, Anthea Trevelyan (piano & theory) and Mark Trevelyan (guitar & theory). We offer high quality tuition in piano, guitar and musical literacy, tailored expressly to the individual needs of each student. 
We are based in Adelaide, South Australia; our piano studios in Parkside, Hawthorndene, Goodwood and Henley Beach South, and our guitar studio at Norwood. There is also new location in Sydney, New South Wales, in the Surry Hills area, as of 2014. Tuition in theory, musicianship and aural development is available at Hawthorndene, Norwood, Parkside and Surry Hills. Guitar tuition is now also available at Parkside.
We enjoy sharing music with the world in general - playing, teaching, learning, performing, singing and improvising, listening and generally having fun with music. There's always something new and exciting to discover!
 
We enjoy music in many forms: Anthea also composes and improvises; Mark belongs to a choir, Cantamus. We consider our students to be part of our circle of musical friends, and hold regular informal musical evenings at home, to encourage relaxed and sociable playing and performing opportunities. More formal Recitals are also held for our students several times a year, and exam preparation is another popular option for our students. We are actively involved in playing music, and our ensemble, Capriccioso, where we join with our friend and associate, flautist Caroline Weatherstone, can provide sophisticated classically-based repertoire spiced with some jazz and popular numbers, for your wedding or social function. Anthea and Claire also enjoy providing solo piano music. We are also experienced accompanists, Anthea on piano and Mark on guitar, and can work with singers and instrumentalists on their exam or performance program. Teacher training for pianists to Diploma level is also available.

Our ideas and teaching philosophies, both of the partnership and individually, can be found on the "About Us" page, and we are happy to publish any comments or questions you email us, if we feel they might be of interest generally. Therefore please let us know if you would prefer we don't share your communications.
We'll also add thoughts about the music we've been playing lately, from time to time, as well as any studio news we have to share.
 

 
November Recital 2013
 
The November Recital was held on Sunday 24/11/2013. The programme was varied and packed with enjoyable and confidently-presented performances through the Juniors, where there were some remarkably assured items from debut young performers - including a performance of an original composition by 5-year-old Ione - to the new Intermediate Recital (Grades 1 - 5) and the Seniors, for our students ranging from Grade 5 to Associate Diploma level. Thank you to all of the performers for their preparation and enjoyable items; Mark, Anthea, Claire and An are proud to be your teachers!
 

 
 
Our regular monthly Musical Evenings, which provide an informal performance platform for our students and other musical friends, will resume on Friday 4 February (see below). These evenings have continued to be a pleasure, with mostly adult students taking advantage of the opportunity to showcase their work-in-progress as well as polished performance items. All students can benefit immensely from this regular performance practice and the sense of "musical community" so we do urge students of all ages to attend as often as possible, at least a couple of times a year.
 
 
  Beginning in 2014, we have two new piano teachers,  Karolinka Dawidziak (see About Us) and Isabella Beatty.
