discover your inner musician...
Thanks for visiting!
Music For Human1ty is my professional music performance and tuition venture, offering high quality tuition in piano and musical literacy, tailored expressly to the individual needs of each student.
I am Anthea Trevelyan, based in Adelaide, South Australia, with a home studio in Hawthorndene, and a second teaching location at Unley Park. Tuition in piano, theory, musicianship and aural is available at each location.
I enjoy sharing music - playing, teaching, learning, performing and improvising original music, listening and generally having fun with music. To me it is my voice and my means of connecting with the world.
Teaching has been a life long passion of mine, and students are invited to be part of my circle of musical friends, welcome at regular informal musical evenings at my home studio, to encourage relaxed and sociable playing and performing opportunities.
More formal Recitals are also held several times a year, and exam preparation is another popular option for my students.
I can also can provide sophisticated. classically-based piano repertoire spiced with some jazz and popular numbers, for your wedding or social function, either solo or in duo with guitar or possibly other instruments.
I am also an experienced accompanist and can work with singers and instrumentalists on their exam or performance program.

If you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact me.
My ideas and teaching philosophies, both of the partnership and individually, can be found on the "About Me" page, and I am happy to publish any comments or questions you email us, if I feel they might be of interest generally. Therefore please let me know if you would prefer I don't share your communications.
I will also add thoughts about the music I'm enjoying, from time to time, as well as general news and updates.
Under Covid_19 restrictions, the 2020 Mid-Year Recital was replaced with a series of Performance Workshops, where groups of up to 6 students met at my home studio, rehearsed and recorded their music which was then shared with each family via a Certificate of Performance with embedded video link.
A decision will be made soon regarding the 2020 December Recital, taking all Covid requirements into account.
Our regular monthly Musical Evenings, which provide an informal performance platform for our students and other musical friends, will resume on Friday 4 February (see below). These evenings have continued to be a pleasure, with mostly adult students taking advantage of the opportunity to showcase their work-in-progress as well as polished performance items. All students can benefit immensely from this regular performance practice and the sense of "musical community" so we do urge students of all ages to attend more often.
In April 2010 Anthea travelled to Melbourne to attend the Australian Guild of Music Education's Graduation Ceremony, where Yang Chunling, who has been a delightful and high-achieving student for five years, was awarded her Associate Teaching Diploma as well as two Special Achievement Certificates. The previous year Chunling was Awarded her Associate Performance Diploma for Piano. She is now pursuing her primary study area of Business Law, and we wish her all the best in what is sure to be a very full life!
Coming Studio Events:
