Unique and Tailored Music Education in Sydney’s Inner West

Meet our Teachers

“If a child can’t learn the way we teach , maybe we should teach the way they learn”

– Ignacio Estrada

Our Philosophy

At the Inner West Institute of Music, we believe that a balanced attitude toward lifelong music learning should be encouraged in every person. The benefits of a music education have been well-documented and really should be considered as a necessary component of every child’s learning; but also, we know that the study of music enhances personal skills , such as patience, problem-solving, creativity, self-expression, concentration and memorization, to name a few.

“Nelly Jacano is a passionate and spectacular piano teacher that no one could possibly ask for more. I’ve started lessons with Nelly 8 years ago, and she has taught me and pushed me to my limits so i could be successful and happy. Nelly will push people to where she believes they have the potential to learn and exceed expectations. I have received high results in my AMEB piano exams and she is always preparing for more pieces and work to keep me busy and working hard. Nelly has always been an inspiration to me and i am glad to be her student”

– Dylan Khammarath Lam

“Victoria has been an amazing teacher for our two sons. She has been engaging and patient and has provided the tailored individual attention that each has needed over the recent years. Victoria is clearly an accomplished performer and we’re thankful that we found someone who is equally capable as a musician and teacher. Victoria’s dedication and energy to support her students and the broader industry is inspiring. Highly recommended!”

– Amanda Reynolds
