Emma Jury – Piano & Vocals
Online Lessons Available

Emma has been playing piano since the age of four. She began lessons as part of her music therapy sessions while undergoing treatment at the Royal Children’s Hospital. Since then, she started formal classical piano training at age six and has completed the AMEB Piano exams up to and including Grade 8, receiving a distinction in 2017. Around the time of completing her Grade 8 Piano exam, she started teaching privately from home to a few students in her local area and has since grown her business to include teaching within local high schools, preparing students for their music exams, accompaniment for university auditions, and recording students own compositions in a professional recording studio.

In 2010, aged nine, Emma took to singing and taught herself using ear training she gained from nearly five years of consistent piano lessons. She was then able to accompany herself on piano independently.

She began singing lessons at age fourteen and has since gone on to commence her tertiary education at the Victorian College of the Arts studying Jazz and Improvisation (Voice), where she is set to complete her Bachelor’s Degree at the end of 2024. She is also working towards her Certificate of Performance for Contemporary Voice (AMEB) and her A.Mus.A for Musical Theatre Voice (AMEB) later in 2024.

Since starting university, she has led several original music projects including a ten-piece fusion band of her compositions, as well as performing as a sessional vocalist and keyboardist for a variety of pop, jazz, rock, and fusion bands. She often performs with smaller groups and hopes to record and release a debut EP in 2025.

Emma’s teaching philosophy can be broken down into three sections; listen, practice, and perform. For every piece of music that any musician might wish to play, it’s Emma’s strong belief that students should listen to many other pieces of music to aid the student’s appreciation for the work. She encourages a strict, yet balanced practice routine for all students, as well as play and improvisation, to achieve a well-rounded education. Finally, she encourages students to engage in performance opportunities appropriate for their age and musicianship level.

Lessons with Emma while maintaining a fun environment, will have any eager student on their way to reaching their musical endeavours no matter what level they are looking to achieve.
