I have been teaching piano for 10 years and have enjoyed seeing the progress of many students develop into musicians.
I have a PGCE in Secondary Music and a wealth of experience of teaching students of all ages. I believe when learning piano it is important to get as much enjoyment as possible and that as the teacher, it is my job to enable this whilst ensuring each student progresses with their musicianship. It’s when students gain confidence in becoming a musician, that they realise there is a lot more enjoyment that can be had!
It is important to get to grips with the basic aspects of music when you start learning. This includes basic notation, chord progressions and some theory. Using my own composition of resources, students learn these skills that provide the basis for all pianists.
I am happy to take students through ABRSM or Rock School grades, but also happy to help students achieve personal goals too.
I have a full DBS enhanced certificate and happy to supply details on request.
