Felicity Atkinson (Keyboard/Piano)
My name is Felicity and I teach the piano and keyboard.
I starting learning the piano as a teenager working through all the grades and then a performance diploma. As an adult I went on to learn the violin achieving a grade 8 and I also have a few grades in singing.
I started teaching privately in 1990 and then joined the Music Hub in 2008 and I just love the fact that my role as a Music Leader gives me the chance to work with young people from all backgrounds and from all areas of the city enabling them to experience the gift of music!
I also really enjoy being the pianist for one of the Junior Voice choirs. Aside from working at the Music Hub I work as church musician as an organist and running a small church choir.

I like composing music and have written well over a hundred relaxing piano pieces.
