- Tell me about some of your current students.
Recently a student of mine passed his grade 5 keyboard music exam. This was an excellent achievement as he managed to take this just one year after passing his grade 3. He also gained an A grade at GCSE music and passed his grade 5 theory exam.I currently teach piano to a 6 year old girl who is learning rapidly and really enjoying her lessons. I teach a variety of school aged pupils and I also teach adults from beginners to those who learnt as children but stopped playing for various reasons.I have a student who is retired and enjoys learning her favourite pieces for pleasure.
