Top 3 things about working at Focus Music
1.  The wonderful music teachers who love what they do and share their passion for music with their students.
2. The fabulous parents and students who visit the office.
3. My 2 girls are now part of the environment and visit mum on Wednesday and are learning piano and ukulele.
Something you may get asked a lot here at Focus Music?
Can I play an instrument!  Sadly not but I absolutely love all forms of music and what it brings your life.  I am very happy my kids wanted to learn an instrument and are progressing so well.
Something we didn’t know about you?
I trekked to Base Camp Everest in 2008 with my brother.  Hard and rewarding

Violin | Viola

Patrick Meyer

Patrick started learning his instrument when I was 8 years old and is now undertaking a Bachelor of Classical Instrumental Performance – Violin and Viola at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA).

When it comes to starting an instrument, Patrick believes it’s not a matter of age, but rather of effort. The youngest student he’s had was four years old, with his oldest student being in her sixties!

Every student learns differently so in his lessons, the teaching methods, technique and repertoire are tailored to the individual.

People are at their most productive when they are excited and engaged, so Patrick makes sure each student has a say in picking their pieces.

Outside of teaching, Patrick is an avid performer; some experiences including playing in Perth Symphony Orchestra concerts, multiple ensembles at WAAPA, events at RAC Arena and the Art Gallery of Western Australia, and in musicals such as Les Misérables and Oliver Twist.

Drums

Felix Lemann

Felix started playing drums and percussion in primary school and is currently in third year of the Bachelor of Music (Jazz) at WAAPA. Felix is currently the drummer for Wayjo’s (WA Youth Jazz Orchestra) Tuesday Night Orchestra and is also pre-recording sessions for the WAAPA musical A Chorus Line.

Felix likes to get an understanding for a student’s musical interests. He finds students are more engaged when we can put theory and technical work into playing their favourite songs.

Felix uses 2 drum kits in his lessons so he can play alongside the student, allowing them to get a sense for how an exercise should sound. This also helps the student keep good time!

Importantly, Felix’s lessons are always FUN which helps keep students engaged and enjoying themselves (which is what playing music all about!).
