Tachyon School of Music is owned and run by Melbourne pianist Tim Buckland, who has a Bachelor of Music with Honours from the University of Melbourne, and holds a Licentiate of Music Australia from the AMEB. He has over a decade of teaching experience, and is certified in the methodologies of Kodaly and Orff Schulwerk.


Our mission is to provide high-quality piano lessons using the best pedagogical principles and techniques for efficient and effective learning. We aim for our students to be true musicians: to live and breathe music as a natural expression of their selves.


We value our students. We aim to give them a positive experience at every piano lesson they have. We aim to motivate them to be the best pianist they can be and to harness their creativity to compose and improvise their own music.

We value excellent customer service. Our customers can expect to be treated courteously, with respect and enthusiasm. We can be contacted via email and phone and will respond in a timely manner.

We value professionalism. We are a professional music school and we treat it as such. We will be punctual and well-prepared for lessons and give our students our full attention. We will communicate regularly to keep customers updated on all relevant matters.

We value parental involvement. Parents are a decisive factor in whether young students will be successful in their musical journey. Therefore, we value and encourage parents and their involvement in their child’s piano lessons.

We value continual improvement. We undergo professional development to improve teaching skills and pedagogy. We continually assess our performance and welcome feedback from customers in order to find ways in which we can improve our service.
