Ethan has had a passion for guitar since the age of 11. Growing up in Bowraville, NSW, he started playing with friends in a band and learning his instrument. After a few years of learning rock and blues on electric guitar he then became fascinated with finger style guitar-plays. This led him to eventually move to Brisbane to study Classical Guitar, under renowned British Guitarist Julian Byzantine at the Queensland Conservatorium for Music.
Ethan completed his studies and developed a passion for teaching and sharing his gained knowledge of the guitar. He continues to work on various musical projects and playing in concerts in the mid-north Coast area including Bellingen. Ethan is always inspired by students and friends getting into action with music and likes to find balance from teaching with a good cuppa in the beautiful Nambucca Valley towns and rainforest.
Joanna Becker found solace and peace in the piano at a young age of 6. She trained for 12 years in playing classical, romantic and baroque genres with Neil Colledge to grade 7 level (grade 5 theory) before pursuing a career in business and creative department operations.
Following a 10 year career as Copywriter and Creative Project Process Manager with a number of creative direct marketing campaigns within the top 10 best-sellers worldwide, and a completed Bachelor of Business and direct & digital marketing and project maangement certificates on the side, Joanna's career circled back to music and creative writing when she became a full-time stay at home and homeschooling mum in 2010. Teaching health meditation and guiding creative insight and relaxation journeys became her new area of interest.
Now, a leisure pianist of almost 30 years with an insatiable desire to compose more relaxing classical piano tracks, such as what you will find in the back cover of Dusty's Wonder Bug, as well as Australian fiction novels, children's books and creative guided visualisations and health meditation journeys, Joanna continues to study music, education, holistic stress management, nutrition and permaculture.
Joanna is certified through the Australian College of Holistic Studies to teach meditation to young children, teenagers and adults, as well as a Certificate in Early Childhood, Workplace Training and Assessment, and current NSW Working with Children Checks.
