I have been teaching since 2007 and have a 100% pass rate for practical and theory exams. I have achieved ABRSM Grade 8 Practical and Grade 5 Theory of Music. I am also a member of the Incorporated Society of Musicians (ISM).
I have an Enhanced DBS Certificate, which is the highest level of DBS check.
Personalised Teaching Approach
Lessons are tailored to specific needs, including:
- Learning to read music
- Focus on your favourite type (genre) of music, e.g. classical, romantic, baroque, modern, popular
- Training to sit graded practical and music theory exams
- Refresh skills and continue to develop repertoire
- Or just for fun!
The first lesson is free, so you can decide if it's the right fit for you (or your child), with no obligation to sign up for lessons. My standard rate is £18 per 30 minute lesson.
I conduct online piano lessons via the videoconferencing platform Zoom
. It is very simple to set up and works well for virtual piano lessons, enabling you to be taught from the comfort of your own home. This allows you to fit in piano lessons even if you have a busy schedule, and importantly, in these uncertain times, to stay safe from COVID-19.
All you need for online lessons are:
- Broadband internet connection
- Device with wifi connectivity and an inbuilt camera, e.g. any smartphone/ iPhone/ Android/ iPad/ tablet/ laptop
- A keyboard or piano
- Something to prop your device on to angle it towards you and your instrument
Don't worry if you have your doubts about online learning. I can assure you it makes for a great learning experience, and you can try it yourself by booking a free trial lesson, by clicking on the Contact Us button above. I am happy to answer any questions you may have, just send me a message.
Up until recently I always taught my students in person at my home, however since COVID-19, I have put all in-person lessons on hold and moved as many as possible to virtual piano lessons. I will be returning to in-person lessons as soon as it is safe to do so, but I will continue the online format for those who prefer it.
I have available lesson slots Monday to Friday from 9:30am to 5pm, and teach during school term times. If you have specific needs, feel free to send me a message and we can find a time that works for you.
So, if you'd like your child to learn a lifelong skill in piano playing or if you want to try a new hobby and play for yourself, send me a message and we can book your free lesson today.
