Hi, I’m Sharon Hatton and I love to share my love of music with you and your family.
I was born and raised in a very musical family in Singapore. I started piano lessons at 5, at the recommendation of my Kindergarten teacher and was always involved with performances and concerts at school. At 18, I completed an Associate Diploma with the London College of Music in piano performance and commenced my teaching career. One of my first students was my primary school teacher's son who was 5 years old at the time! I taught piano privately and in primary schools. I was also involved in drawing up and teaching a keyboard curriculum for years 1 - 6. Music education has always been my prime focus.
In 2003, I moved to Sydney and continued teaching with Eastern Suburbs Piano Tuition. I worked closely with a team of teachers and taught piano, music theory and also prepared my students for recitals and examinations. In 2004, I started teaching the Kindermusik© curriculum with Pringle Place Music in Edgecliff, Sydney. It is an immensely delightful program that nurtures the
natural love for music that children are born with! It helps little ones develop and meet very important milestones.
In 2008, I moved up to the Central Coast with my husband and 8 month old baby. I enjoyed my time as a stay-at-home mum , having another baby, in 2010, but still enjoying Kindermusik© classes all the way through with Jude at Musicrazy. Now, with a 6 1/2 and a 3 1/2 year old, I am proud to open The Piano Bug Music School offering piano lessons and Kindermusik© classes to my local community in Wyoming.
Music has brought so much joy to me and my family. I am excited to share it as a piano teacher, Kindermusik© educator and a mum! I hope you enjoy your musical adventures with me!!!

"I can’t recommend Sharon and her Musikbugs class enough! Firstly, Sharon is an absolutely wonderful teacher. She is patient, kind, nurturing and best of all FLEXIBLE – an absolute god send when you’re raising little ones. My daughter lights up the minute we walk into Sharon’s classroom and absolutely loves every single minute of our time there."
"I have been doing Sharon’s music classes with my son since he was 4 months old and now he’s nearly one and both of us love it! Sharon is a wonderful and caring teacher with lot of experience and knowledge about children’s development. Sharon would always point out what type of play through singing and dancing stimulates particular development."
