Here are what some of our students and parents have to say about us:
"The concert was fantastic. It was amazing to see all the kids performed with
ease and confidence. It was a great opportunity for the kids to show their parents
and friends their talents and their progress."

"As an adult learning music, it is often difficult to maintain motivation with
work, social life and law studies and all. I find that the teachers here at Shine
Music School are excellent and continually motivate me to strive for new goals and
reach the playing level I am aiming to achieve."
Ben Tolson, Paralegal Russell J Baxter Solicitor Parramatta, Guitar Student, 21
"I knew about Shine Music School from my son's school newsletter, I was not sure whether my son will really benefit from violin lessons. I got him to try the free lesson, and it was really good, now my son has almost finished his first term and he is very happy and I'm happy with the teaching standard. They are very friendly and professional. I recommend Shine Music School for every child and parent who is looking for quality, fun and enjoyable music lessons."

and am motivated to practise rather than forcing me to study pieces I do not enjoy.

friendly and love to talk to the students."

"It was a pleasure to have Shine Music perform at the Courtyard by Marriott Parramatta last night. Our hotel loves to engage the local community and offer the opportunity to assist the youth in our local area.
The artists you had perform for the hotel last night are a credit to Shine Music. The performance was enjoyed by our guests and the team put on a great display of entertainment.
Thanks again Shine Music School and I hope that we have the opportunity to assist in exposing more of the area's local talent in the future."
Jason Farnworth. Operations Manager. Marriot Courtyard Hotel Parramatta
"I used to think that I could learn much more by myself than with a teacher taking
lessons. But I learnt more in just one guitar lesson with Shine Music than I did
the whole time I had my guitar"

"The teachers at Shine Music School are very patient with the students and encourage

settled down at Shine Music School. He loves the fun atmosphere, learning both classical
and popular music, meeting other students and performing at different venues that
are often organised for the students by the school."

I also like the competitions with the great prizes that they run each month."
