Althea - Galashiels - Music

Methodology

I have played piano since I was very small. Classical, Modern and now Jazz. I have the experience of seeing my practice benefit my playing and worked towards exams so I full understand that there are highs and lows in learning an instrument. I have been taught by strict tutors, sloppy tutors and genuinely gifted tutors and believe that I have the best elements of all three in a structured lesson.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Piano.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

BA Hons, (1st Class), in Music Performance and Secondary Education.

- How much do you charge?

Adults are £25 for a 30 minute lesson
Children are £15 for 30 minutes.
Lesson prices reduce to £20 when 4 or more are paid in advance.
Parents and small children can be taught together- price on arrangement.

- Where do you teach?

I teach at home on a brand new baby grand piano that is regulalry tuned and in excellent condition. I have created a friendly welcome atmosphere at home and guarantee that my lessons are fun.

- When are you available?

I teach most evenings and Saturday mornings.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Beginners - children who are comfortable with the first seven letters of the alphabet and counting from 1 to 8
Adult beginners
Intermediate
Advanced
Grades
Adult returners

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

All Associated Board exams
Standard and Higher Grade Music
NC and HNC/D Music

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

N/A

- Do you have a personal message for students?

The key to developing is establishing a practice regime that you can realistically stick to. Practising once a week doesn't allow your fingers to stretch and for you to build up necessary memory and stamina. Why not begin with 10 minutes every day and build up to several 10 minute practises during the day. Make your practising fun. Add games into your routine and then reward yourself.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been teaching for over twenty years.
One to one and group lessons.
I teach parents and children together if needs be.
I have been the Learning Manager for Performing Arts in an FE college and teach performace confidence, stage craft and music interpretation.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I trained with Francine Dickens, Edinburgh achieving all grades.
4 Year Degree at Strathclyde University in conjunction with Jordanhill teacher training college.
