Pip Hargrave commenced teaching with Mini Maestros in July 2012 after taking her now adolescent children to classes when they were young. Having played guitar since the age of 7, Pip completed a major in music at LaTrobe University and a Diploma of Education in primary and secondary teaching. She has an extensive background in music, having taught primary school music and guitar, conducted after school choir, headed a contemporary band in the late 80s, performed at weddings and sung in choirs and church bands. Pip loves teaching the Mini Maestros program because she feels it imparts many benefits, is very well constructed and is educational. She is amazed at how Mini Maestros students show an awareness of various musical elements at such a young age.
