Jane Shellshear studied piano with Elizabeth Green and Phillip Shovk while undertaking a Bachelor of Music in Performance at the University of Sydney. She continued postgraduate performance studies at the Royal Northern College of Music with Sulamita Aronovsky and in London with Irina Zaritskaya.

On returning to Australia her interest in performance disciplines led to gaining qualification as a practitioner of Alexander Technique and most recently as the first accredited Andover Educator resident in Australia.

As a music educator Jane has extensive knowledge in performance practice across mainstream genres and a depth of experience in instrumental teaching. Integrating this with a sophisticated approach to how movement and manner of physical use impacts upon performance gives her teaching a unique tone.

She is a member of the Australian Society for Performing Arts Healthcare and the Australian Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique.

Student Comments

Body Mapping allows me to experience my performing as inclusive, expansive, intelligent and pleasurable.

This work is very inspiring. I found myself singing and the flow of air and sound was free and fluid - it was awesome!

The arm mapping is truly transformative for me at the piano.
