My unique approach and encouraging teaching style makes it easy to read music and to play the piano or keyboard with confidence!
At Harmonio Piano Studio students are taught a range of music skills in an integrated way: Piano technique; reading music; sight reading; ear training; playing by memory; playing piano with others; theory of music; history of music and musical instruments; scales, chords and arpeggios; practice skills and performance techniques.
During music lessons I look for opportunities to help young students develop relevant literacy, numeracy and vocabulary skills, drawing on my experience as a school teacher.
I started teaching piano, keyboard and theory of music 26 years ago. Currently my youngest student is 3 years old and the oldest is 83.
My students have achieved Merit and Distinction in Trinity and Royal Schools graded international exams up to Grade 8 Piano.
I also have experience as a professional pianist and as a classroom teacher, which included music.
Flexible Lesson Times
The length and frequency of lessons can be arranged to suit the student and their family. Lesson times can be flexible to fit around changing work hours.
Usually students have one 30-minute piano lesson per week. Young students may prefer lessons lasting only 15 or 20 minutes. Some adults have lessons lasting 45 or 60 minutes.
Lessons can be individual or shared.
The first online lesson is free and an opportunity to experience my unique approach. I look forward to meeting you and discussing how I could help you to achieve your goals with lessons tailored to your learning style. Book your trial lesson today! :-)
