Teaching Info

A large focus of my teaching is encouraging and developing skills to read and understand the music they are playing. Giving my students tools and tips to be able to read music, confidence to try new music themselves , to be able to play with others, and to enjoy the learning process.

I  prepare for every lesson uniquely and work with studentsand their learning style to set goals for their learning.

Where possible, I  like to include composition, improvisation (from time to time), piano duets and piano trios (6 hands 1 piano) during the year because these encourage playing with others, listening and creativity.

Having taught practical and online lessons for some time – I am passionate about this way of teaching/learning!  There is no need to be local to learn online!

I run studio practice incentives for the younger students who also enjoy competing with themselves and each other on theory games (some board games, some online).

For those wanting to sit playing or theory exams these option are also available and there are IRMT events that they can be part of too.

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for being my piano teacher and helping me learn an instrument which was and still is a huge accomplishment for me! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed our lessons and learning to play a number of songs. Thanks for always being kind and patient.
