Rob has been an instrumental instructor for many years giving keyboard lessons to all abilities and ages. Teaching and Rehearsal Rooms – We now have teaching rooms and rehearsal rooms at Musiclounge in Stockton.
We encourage all of our students to take music exams through the most reconised institutations including Trinty Guildhall, ABRSM, RGT and Rockshcool. It's much easier than you think to understand how to construct chords & playing a melody with the right hand is easier than almost any instrument. Move every component up (or down) by the same distance (include the black notes) & you can find any major chord on your keyboard. In any chord, drop (or flatten) the 3rd by a semitone & you'll have created it's minor version.
You can find the chords to popular songs easily on the net, usually for use with guitar, but they're a great easy way in to accompanying your tune played in the right hand. Interestingly but confusingly, another more jazzy type of 7 chord is known as a ‘major 7' (the word ‘major' here has, irritatingly NOTHING to do with whether you have a major 3rd in the chord or a minor 3rd ) If your head is starting to spin at this point, don't panic! One of the great advantages to playing by ear, though, is that whatever your instrument, you don't need to transpose anything.
You can split many keyboards to play different sounds or use different manuals (as on a church organ) or as Ric Wakeman famously pioneered - play different units with each hand. The whole ethos of the Newburgh Ear Academy is to develop the ear so that students can play directly what they hear, or hear in their head. Once the ear is developed enough to be able to translate things to the keyboard directly, reading is not so important. A guitar gives up to 6 different notes at any one time allowing you to play the tune, the bass, the chord & add rhythm too – if you're good enough….

From 1966 until his departure for America in 1975, singer, songwriter, keyboard player and producer Brian Cadd was one of the most prominent musicians on the local scene. After leaving W.A in the early '60s the Cadd family moved to Tasmania and eventually settled in Melbourne, just as Beatlemania swept the country.
From The Jackson Kings, Brian went on to two of the most celebrated bands of their day, The Groop and Axiom. In October 1966, Brian and Ronnie joined guitarist Don Mudie, bassist Max Ross and drummer Richard Wright to form the second and best-known incarnation of The Groop (1966-69). Besides writing or co-writing The Groop's original material, Brian also began getting his songs covered by other artists.
Brian and Don had formed a strong writing partnership and after the demise of The Groop they put together what is generally considered Australia's first supergroup: Axiom. After the break-up of Axiom in March 1971, Brian and Don returned to Australia but they continued working together. One of Brian's first major projects on his return to Australia was with for his old mate Russell Morris. Brian began to establish his solo presence when he and Don Mudie issued the duo single Show Me the Way, released on Ron Tudor's Fable Records in December 1971. Brian's first fully solo recordings were Sure Feels Good, Making It on Your Own and Come With Me and these appeared on the soundtrack album of Albie Falzon's classic surf film Morning of the Earth (Warner, May 1972) alongside tracks by Hannagan, Tamam Shud and G.
In mid-1972 Ron Tudor and Brian set up Fable's new imprint Bootleg, which was launched in September. In 1973 Brian began to fulfil his ideas for Bootleg by putting together the Bootleg Family Band, and he sang lead and played keyboards on their version of Loggins & Messina's Your Mama Don't Dance, which was another major hit that year, reaching #4 and charting for 17 weeks.
Brian's second album Parabrahm reached #5 nationally, and spawned a string of successful singles: Every Mother's Son (March), Silver City Birthday Celebration Day (July) and Keep on Rockin' (October). Bootleg issued the Brian Cadd EP, collecting the four hit A-sides Ginger Man, Show Me the Way, Every Mother's Son and Silver City Birthday Celebration Day. Brian toured the USA with The Bootleg Family Band, and became the first Australian artist to perform on the American television shows Midnight Special and Don Kirshner's Rock Concert. Brian's songs have been covered by many prominent acts, notably the Pointer Sisters (Love is Like a Rolling Stone, which was picked as the b-side for their massive worldwide hit Fire), Gene Pitney (Let Go), Joe Cocker, Ringo Starr, Bonnie Tyler, Yvonne Elliman, Charlie Daniels, Glen Campbell, The Little River Band, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Dobie Gray, Johnny Halliday, Sylvie Vartan, Cilla Black, Trini Lopez, Wayne Newton, Paul Jones and many others. Mushroom issued a one-off single, My Baby (Loves To Hurt Me) in September 1982, and in 1983 Brian returned to Australia for a two-year period where he ran Graffiti Records for the Polygram Group. In 1985 Brian secured the rights to a song called Turn Up the Beat and produced it as the first solo single for the young Tina Arena, who was then just beginning her career as a solo artist after her Young Talent Time days.
In 1992, Brian reunited with his old Axiom buddy Glenn Shorrock to record an album for EMI, which was released early in 1993. In 1991 Brian was invited to join veteran US country-rock band The Flying Burrito Brothers.
Now based back in Australia, on the Gold Coast, Brian still performs and tours regularly, and has been active in teaching and lecturing on songwriting, in music publishing and other various aspects of the industry in Australia and the U.S.


Brian is currently the Chairman of the Australian Music Industry Advisory Council and President of the Australian Music Foundation.
On the recording front, he issued the album Live at Crown in November 1998 on Stallion Records, and has recently released the compilation, Brian Cadd: The Singles, a comprehensive collection of his classic material, digitally remastered, and including some rare tracks like Angry Words, Brian's own version of the song he originally wrote for Glenn Shorrock. In 2010 he completed his BA HONS Degree in Music Performance for which he achieved a 2:1 at The Millennium Institute in Perth, Scotland. He started working as an instructor whilst studying for his BA (Hons) in Perth, Scotland for Grey Row Studios in 2009. Or perhaps even the introduction to a piece, which as this is generally an instrumental, lends itself particularly to the piano. As your confidence builds you'll be playing more & listening less, until the player is turned off altogether. No Embouchure to master, no holes to seal perfectly with your fingers, no sliding around on the fingerboard to find just where your note is in tune. So moving every component of your C major chord up by a semi-tone, will give you a C# major chord, or by a tone, you'll get a D major chord. You don’t need to be able to play it perfectly to benefit from the perfect visual interpretation it will give you of Chords in particular. String sounds and others can add depth & warmth to a bands sound without too much fancy finger work.
However there are two main reasons why learning sheet music can be a good idea when learning the keyboard. Those - especially children, whose ears are really not well developed musically tend to remember the patterns they are taught when taught without sheet music. The keyboard is far more complicated than any other instruments as it plays up to 10 notes at the same time.
The piano does all this too but with as many tones (notes) playing at once as you have fingers – so more than 6 then.
Dave was a founder member of Edinburgh’s Soul Inferno for whom he played keys for two years. So many genres were born in conjunction with the guitar, Rock, blues, folk, Spanish and country all owe their thanks to guitars, and rightly so.
They emulate a sound and feel so close to that of a real piano, that its almost indistinguishable, yet they have unmatched versatility and a much lower price tag – perfect for beginners.
He remains a key figure in the history of Australian music; one glance at his extensive discography will indicate his prolific musical output, and he has been active in many other areas of the industry throughout his long and successful career. At the age of ten, his parents gave him the choice between tennis lessons or piano lessons – obviously he chose the latter. The careers of both these outstanding groups are covered in detail on dedicated pages on the Milesago website. No doubt via the Meldrum connection (Ian and Ronnie were childhood friends) Brian wrote and produced Ronnie Burns' 1967 single When I Was Only Six Years Old, which was later covered in the UK by former Manfred Mann vocalist Paul Jones with some success.
The rest of the all-star line-up consisted of former Twilights lead singer Glenn Shorrock, Valentines drummer Doug Lavery (later replaced by Don Lebler) and Cam-Pact singer-guitarist Chris Stockley.
Brian's return marked the start of a whirlwind of recording, writing and production and touring.
Russell and Brian had known each other since the mid-60s – Russell's band Somebody's Image got their first break supporting The Groop.
It was a very respectable success, reaching #17 in February 1972 and charting for 12 weeks.
The next single Alvin Purple (November) was of course the theme song from Tim Burstall's feature film of the same name. There were more hits through 1974 – the LP Moonshine (#16 in September), and the singles Class Of '74 (April) (the theme song from the TV series of the same name), Let Go (#14 in September) and Boogie Queen (December). 1975 saw the Australian release of the single Gimme Good Lovin' (recorded in the USA) and the compilation The Magic of Brian Cadd. Interfusion issued the albums White on White and Yesterdaydreams, plus the singles White On White, Longest Night (1976), Yesterdaydreams (October 1978), Skating on Thin Ice (April 1979) and Very Very Long Time (May 1980).
He also returned to soundtracks, scoring the American films Homemovies (1982), Fatal Vision and Vampires At Death Beach (1987), and the last instalment of George Romero's cult zombie trilogy Return Of The Living Dead (1988). Brian set up his production company Shameless Productions, then issued an album and two singles, Land of the Video (March 1985) and Still Hurting Me (June 1985) on Graffiti. They spent much of the next two years touring Australia and South East Asia to support the Blazing Salads album and its three singles, When It All Comes Down, De-Emphasize and a new version of Little Ray of Sunshine.
In 1997, he built the state-of-the-art recording studio Ginger Man Sound on Queensland's Gold Coast. He has also recently joined the online music education provider musicIT as an international consultant.
Rob has been performing music for many years all over the North of England and Scotland in original bands, function bands and has also played in several musicals including Grease, Bugsy Malone and The Phantom of the Opera. Since moving back to the North East of England Rob still teachers Piano and other instruments on a weekly basis and is part of the Musicians Union and fully CRB checked. We'll be listening to music you have on your ipod to get us started, to find wee rifs, melodies & chords.
If you sing…that's a great advantage for many pieces & will free you from playing the melody so you can concentrate on all the rest. G, C, E (with the root in the middle) is a second inversion – but they're all C major when played together. Thus an understanding of sheet music allows the student to make a record as parts are worked out. Without the dots the player is free to make the numerous variations based on the simple formulas taught at the academy. We aim to minimise a somewhat difficult decision process by excluding poor quality music instruments from the buying process and only focusing on the best of beginner, intermediate and advanced models. Guitars are one of the easiest instruments to learn, they give you incredible control over sound, as well incredible versatility in how you actually play it, plus they sound great.
When comparing a real piano to a digital on playability and sound, they are very similar and in a lot of cases digital pianos are a better choice. At twelve he entered a TV talent quest, from which he was offered the job as pianist in a junior band on a local children's TV show.
Brian's earliest musical ventures in Melbourne were the Beale Street Jazz Band and The Castaways. Much of their work exhibited the influence of The Band, whose first two albums had cast their spell on so many musicians, including George Harrison and Eric Clapton.


He also worked behind the scenes in the music business, getting into publishing and management.
Russell had been working on a solo album with EMI house producer Howard Gable, which had been scrapped because of differences between Russell and Howard over the direction of the music.
By this time, Brian had become Fable's A&R manager and chief producer, and in this capacity went on to write, play on and produce Robin Jolley's 1972 hit Marshall's Portable Music Machine (a virtual Cadd solo single in all but name and lead vocal) and Robin's subsequent solo album. It was a significant chart success, reaching #16 nationally on its release in October 1972 and charting for 18 weeks.
Brian wrote the score for both Alvin Purple (1973), and its sequel Alvin Rides Again (1975). By this time Brian had signed an American distribution deal and both Parabrahm and Moonshine came out on Chelsea Records in the USA.
It formed an important connection, though – the composers of that song are the same team who years later wrote Tina's international smash hit Chains.
Their backing band included Rex Goh (guitar; ex-Air Supply, Club Buggery band), Kirk Lorange (guitar, ex-Richard Clapton Band) and Mark Kennedy (drums, ex-Spectrum, Ayers Rock, Marcia Hines Band).
In 1993 he returned to soundtracks and wrote the score for the very hit Australian film The Heartbreak Kid which launched the career of Alex Dimitriades (and which was later spun off into the successful TV series Heartbreak High). In March 1998 he took over as CEO of The Streetwise Music Group in Brisbane, eventually becoming a co-owner. With a passion for musical theatre one of his most recent projects which he wrote, directed and also performed in was an original production of ‘Rocky the Musical’. Rob makes learning an instrument fun and always tries to teach songs and music the learner is interested in whilst also developing a good knowledge of theory, scales, chords and the instrument itself. Once you know what notes make up your chord, you can play them anywhere at all on the keyboard in any order. You can find any chord this way & soon you'll know just by the sound of your chord that it's a major chord. Fantastic though it is to be able to sit at a pub - or Auntie's Joanna & bash out a tune, or play some relaxing Chopin or Michael Nyman, playing piano can lead you onto the never-ending array of sounds that come from the modern keyboard. The Owners, Andrew and Kathryn Neve are avid musicians and have been providing musical tuition for over 35 years at the hills school of music, in that time they have grown accustomed to what constitutes a good music instrument. The look and feel of a real piano is no doubt more desirable, but when you have limited space, limited budget and are not sure of the viability of your purchase, then a digital piano or keyboard is a must. After that, Brian worked in his cousin's club band, and in a pop group formed with school friends. In 1965, The Castaways mutated into the R&B band The Jackson Kings consisting of Brian, Carl Bennett (vocals), Chas Brown (guitar), Ray Neville (bass) and Bill Turgeon (drums). The Groop enjoyed considerable success during their short career, including three hit singles and first place in the 1967 Hoadley's National Battle Of The Sounds. At that time the Masters' career had been thrown into disarray by the sudden and unexpected departure of songwriter Mick Bower.
Don and Brian co-wrote all their original material, including the hit singles Arkansas Grass, A Little Ray of Sunshine and My Baby's Gone, and the band recorded two very fine LPs, Fool's Gold (Fable, 1969) and If Only (Warner-Reprise, 1971), the latter recorded in Los Angeles and produced by the legendary Shel Talmy. He co-owned a booking agency and became the youngest ever Director on the Board of APRA, the Australian Performing Rights Society. Brian was (pardon the pun) instrumental in helping Russell to get the faltering project back on the rails and his contribution cannot be underestimated. Brian also produced Hans Poulsen's second solo album Lost and Found, Coming Home the Wrong Way Round (1972), the album 1972 AD for Frieze (Beeb Birtles and Daryl Cotton) and he produced and contributed to albums and singles for Stephen Foster, Fat Mamma, The Strangers, New Dream, Dutch Tilders, Bluestone, Kerrie Biddell and Daryl Somers.
In similar wise, Brian envisaged putting together a regular Bootleg house band to back himself and all the other artists on the label, who he would also produce, for recording and touring. In 1986 Brian composed the theme for the successful Australian TV game show Blind Date, and over the years he has written jingles for many successful advertising campaigns including Tooheys, Fosters, Swan and XXXX beer, QANTAS, Pioneer audio, Eastcoast jeans and Tourism Tasmania. Early in 1995 he produced the very first Chinese Country album, actually recorded in Mainland China. The company, which is distributed through Warner Music, now has some 20 acts spread over 3 labels (Streetwise, Stallion and Belly Laugh).
Rob is now a choir leader for Rock Choir, the worlds largest contemporary choir as well as being a very busy performer and having a massive passion for music composition. It's no different with a musical instrument, except you may have to play a couple of notes first till you find the right one.
Nylon string classical guitars, steel string acoustic guitars, electric guitars and bass guitars, we even have a few banjos, mandolins and ukuleles on offer.
Their success and public profile were greatly enhanced by Brian's friendship with Ian Meldrum, and once he became a staff writer there in 1967 he regularly championed The Groop in the pages of Go-Set. He assembled the crack team of musicians who realised Russell's splendid batch of new songs for the album.
Brian also won the composer's section of the final 1972 Hoadley's National Battle of the Sounds with one of the songs from the LP, Don't You Know It's Magic.
The Flying Burrito Brothers issued a new album, Honky Tonkin', in Australia on Cadd's Streetwise label (the US title was Sons of the Golden West) in December 1999 and he toured with them through Australia in January 2000. Plus we stock all the capos, amps, strings stands, straps, bags and accessories you could need.
In 1969, near the end of their career, The Groop also contributed (uncredited) to the backing tracks for Russell Morris' first two solo singles, the phenomenally successful The Real Thing and its follow-up Part III Into Paper Walls. Bootleg quickly became the most successful independent record label in the history of Australian popular music, and it was rivalled in the long term only by Michael Gudinski's Mushroom. He performed it at the Tokyo World Popular Song Festival, where he won the 'Most Outstanding Composition' award, and John Farnham recorded his own successful version in 1973.
This is because the ear recognises the relationships of each note to each other that makes it a major chord (4 semitones to the 3rd , 7 to the 5th ( not counting the start note )).
When The Groop split suddenly in late 1969 (to the consternation of many) Brian went straight on to his next project. Issued in late 1971, the recordings were a major commercial and critical success – and a validation of Brian and Russell's faith in the music. Over the next few years Brian earned many gold and platinum records as a solo artist and an swag of awards for film scores, title songs and TV themes, produced many other acts and wrote and produced some of Australia's most successful advertising music. The single Sweet Sweet Love reached #7 and the album, Bloodstone made #12, as well as earning considerable praise from critics.
