It became quickly evident that Jordie has excellent communication skills. He was able to identify my son's personality, and tailored his tutoring accordingly to fully engage him. My son has a lot of natural ability with piano. and Jordie was very successful in extracting and developing this. His confidence on piano grew substantially over the 2-year period that Jordie tutored him, and I accredit much of Jordie's positive tutoring skills.


Jordie's approach to teaching is both inspirational and refreshing, his non-traditional method has supported Leila to play whatever songs she wants in a short period of time and with flair- thank you Jordie what you have given Leila is a gift for life!

Jodie has a beautiful ability to bring piano teaching alive and make it fun. He really helped me to connect with music in such a practical way. I would higly recommend him to anyone who has always wanted to play and just needs some help.


At all times I have found Jordie to be dependable, reliable, hard working, conscentious, honest, peace-loving and courteous. Jordie is excellent at tailoring the lessons to suit me, and as a result, I believe his knowledge and method of teaching has brought out the best in my music. Jordie has encouraged me to sing with my playing, which is something I had never been confident enough to do, and I feel I have never looked back. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to have music or voice tuition.

Jordie Gundersen has been teaching my son piano to support his HSC music major. Jordie has been a patient, inspiring and invaluable asset to his musical education & achievements.
He has helped him, as a student develop confidence, personal style and a range of skills & technique, that have enhanced his performance.
I cannot recommend Jordie enough as as a piano tutor. We shall be forever grateful, for his mentorship and musical influence!

Jordie has given me about 12 piano lessons now and I can't believe how much I have learnt in that time.
I have been playing piano for less than 2 years and really feel like I am making good in roads into it due to Jordie's style of teaching.
I like music from the 60's and 70's but it doesn't seem to matter as Jordie has good versatility. I sing as well and was looking for a singing teacher but I don't need to look any further as Jordie can work on that with me as well.
Jordie and I get on well and that really helps. I am a teacher myself and I know how important it is to get on with my students.
The lessons are great value and I am extremely happy.


I knew it wasn't going to be easy to find a music teacher that was just right for our family, but when Jordie came on the scene I knew things were going to be different. The kids had been very specificabout what they wanted and it wasn't what they had experienced in the past with previous teachers. They wanted to be able to choose their own music and they didn't want the lessons to be in their words boring, repetitive and old fashioned. Straight up Jordie let them choose their own music and the lessons included how to deconstruct the songs. He made their learning fun and always appealed to their strenths and encouraged them at every opportunity. There will always be music played in our house and be part of their lives and for that we are all very grateful.
