What is Advantage Music Teaching?

Advantage Music Teaching has its origins in  Advantage Music Academy, a brick-and-mortar music school in Peppermint Grove, Western Australia. The Academy was established with the purpose of bringing a high level of professionalism to the industry. Owing to its remarkable success, the Founding Director, Steve Armstrong, and the Early Years Director, Brock Stannard-Brown, want to share their knowledge, resources, and experience with you.
