Piano lessons for
all ages & skill levels

With Professional Tutor Marchie Hya Condon in Carrara, Gold Coast.


Hi, I’m Marchie!

Piano & Music Theory Teacher, Composer, Artist, Music Lover, Sound Therapist and Results Coach

I was born and raised in Hungary and migrated to Australia as a young adult with my small family. I adore the sea, the air, the space, the climate, the lifestyle and the opportunities. I believe “every day is Christmas in Australia”. I love board games and uncontrollable laughter with loved ones.

I most love to bring sense of empowerment, wellness and balance to myself and others by any means, but mostly through sound. I love to daydream and ‘see’ energy behind all. I love to share sounds that transport us to faraway, blissful places, elevate joy and restore wellness.

I enjoy creating organic gardens, yummy foods, soups, green smoothies and avocado chocolate desserts, artworks and quirky things. I love to frolic, laugh and make people realise how great they are – especially playing the piano!

I look forward to meeting you and helping you grow your love of the piano too!

“Blossoming your child’s confidence and creativity through playing and sound – is the greatest gift a parent can give when the right teacher is found.”


“I have known Marchie for over ten years. At the Yamaha Music School she taught classes and conducted individual tuition. This is where she was teaching a music class to four years olds that I first became aware of her strengths. She, beside imparting her musical skills maintained a controlled atmosphere where every participant, both child and adult was satisfied with the outcome. Marchie also impressed with her individual regard for pupils above the responsibilities of her role. It is a testament to her skills that when Marchie began teaching privately, many of us sought her out and have remained with her for all of these years. Marchie has an amazing ability to interact effectively with people from 7 to 70 years old of diverse backgrounds and cultures and to make each person feel important. With patience and compassion she is able to help students discover their own strengths. She is highly recommended!”



“Marchie has a wonderful gift teaching all levels, age groups and abilities. She has been teaching my three sons and myself since 1996 starting with my eldest son in group classes at the Yamaha Music School aged 6. Today he is on his way to a career as a professional orchestral musician. Marchie taught foundations then piano, music theory, musicianship and aural practise. Over the years, Marchie changed from being his teacher to a mentor and then a friend. Marchie is endlessly and wonderfully enthusiastic and her students always come first. She will always put in extra effort to make sure that her pupils are prepared for any exams or concerts. Her music knowledge is extensive and her technical ability is very impressive. If you are looking for a piano teacher for a person of any age or ability, I recommend Marchie as an excellent instructor and mentor.”



“I have always been encouraged by the strength and commitment that Marchie has toward her music career… she treats every individual of all ages with sincerity and genuine kindness… her powers of articulation musically is envied by most and admired by others.”



“I am 13 years old and one of Marchie’s piano students. I love her as a piano teacher and I believe that she is very knowledgeable in her music and can convey that into successful teaching. I have been with several piano teachers, but Marchie is the best one by far!!! I highly recommend her to anyone and everyone. She not only teaches well, but also understands that some people might have other commitments. She is encouraging to everyone and ALWAYS puts her students first. Her passion for music, especially piano is inspiring and shines throughout her teaching. If you are looking for a piano teacher, well it’s your lucky day! Marchie is the perfect piano teacher for all ages and personalities!!!”







“My daughter (14) and son (12) have learnt piano for 5 years in a music school. Being a piano player myself, I felt, they needed a change and I started looking for a new piano teacher with a fresh approach. We had many trial lessons with various teachers. (Marchie recommends this, go and shop around, listen to each teacher, what can they offer to your child and then select!) Upon meeting Marchie, I instantly knew, we found the right teacher. Marchie has a bright, positive personality, she is supportive and encouraging with many years of experience. Most notably, every time my children finished their lesson with Marchie, they felt more confident and capable in themselves. I recommend Marchie as your next piano teacher. If you want to be supported, have fun and willing to work for your progress, she will be by your side. In our digital age I also recommend music playing to children. To turn every electronic device off and for 15 minutes focus on piano practise. This is so beneficial for brain development! Thank you, Marchie. We are moving on, as my children are both pursuing sport as priority. We will miss you!”


Prices & Packages

Weekly tuition is the usual path for predictable, measurable learning journey. Therefore I only offer casual or 2 weekly tuition FOR THE HOBBYIST, as it otherwise does not support steady progress. Students easily lose touch with their previous efforts and get disheartened. If you are looking for regular tuition you are in the right place! Plan your progress with me, buy in bulk and save! (see the pricing table below).

How could it be acceptable to teach only 3(!) pieces of music a whole school year?

I am compelled to put some experience-based feedback out, so you can make an informed decision when you are ready to select your child’s next music teacher. To only teach 3 pieces of piano music a year to a child, because that is a requirement for exam preparation, is completely unacceptable! Please, share your feedback if you had any experience with this topic. Thank You!

Before I begin with any new students, I like to be sure that we are a good fit and get to know the student a little bit – understand where they’re at, what they’re hoping to achieve, etc. This 30 minute no-obligation meeting is complimentary, and also allows you to get a feel for how I work and decide if we are a good match. To book in for your first complimentary meeting, simply go to my online booking calendar, click on “Initial Appointment (FREE)” and select from one of the available times. I look forward to meeting you soon!
