- I am a patient and enthusiastic teacher with experience teaching both children and adults of all ages and levels (including beginner adults). I adjust my teaching style and method to adapt to each student. I am experienced teaching exams (Trinity College London and ABRSM), and also at teaching students who are just playing for fun and relaxation. My goal is for my students to enjoy playing piano so that they look forward to their lessons each week.
