Cambridge Music Graduate with 5 years of teaching experience offering online piano and music theory lessons in Cambridge and Kent

Methodology

Hi there! I am more than happy to give lessons to students of all abilities, from those just starting out in their musical journey, to those looking to complete their Grade 5 Theory, to more experienced pianists and even degree level musicians who need help with dissertations. My teaching method always emphasises flexibility: I love to work closely with students to discover the most effective approach for them. Furthermore, professionalism and diligence both lie at the heart of my strategy; feedback will always be both comprehensive and formal, though these two features will not come at the expense of a student's engagement and interest in the topics we cover. Above all, I believe that if learning is made enjoyable, then the academic side becomes many times easier!

Experience

Hi there! I am a recent Starred First Cambridge Music graduate and current Masters student with a passion for both teaching and learning. I have taught piano, music theory, composition and Oxbridge preparation for the last 5 years and worked within an outstanding Kent Grammar School as the head of their Oxbridge admissions team for the last 2 years. I have been playing the piano for more than 15 years and won several performance and composition prizes prior to my time at Cambridge University. In school, I attained a clean sweep of A* at GCSE (2015) and A level (2017), studying the following subjects: Music, Chemistry, Maths, whilst my future plans involve studying a PhD at Cambridge, for which I currently hold an offer.

Perfect! Rajan is very friendly and easy to communicate. He made notes on our requirement, student's interests, etc. He came out the planning straight away, which sounds reasonable to us. I would like to recommend him to other students!

I am a former student of Rajan. Rajan was very welcoming when I came to him in the hopes of building on my piano skills. I wasn’t starting from scratch, and Rajan considered this, effectively assessing what I had already learnt and the level I had previously achieved. Accordingly, he provided me with informative guidance and set realistic weekly goals, allowing me to progress and rapidly enhance my skills. I would recommend Rajan as a teacher as his methodical approach to teaching, combined with his openness to my music preferences provided a supportive learning environment.

Rajan was my piano teacher for a couple of years. I was a complete beginner and my aim was to be able to learn the basics but also play some songs that caught my interest.

He tailored the classes really well to my interests while also teaching me proper techniques and I was really happy with how much I improved week on week.

The classes were well structured and fun, it was very evident that Rajan was confident in teaching and I would highly recommend him.

In the few years I have worked with Rajan, we have become colleagues and close friends. He is an intelligent, hardworking and determined individual who always strives to perform his best despite the challenges that way come in his way. For someone who is dedicated to his studies, it is unsurprising that he wants to pass on his love of learning to others. Alongside a great sense of humour, Rajan is patient and is able to explain concepts clearly and concisely to others. I could not recommend him highly enough.

S
Samuel

Rajan is punctual, empathetic, and highly knowledgeable. Not only is he is an excellent musician and academic, but he is also very patient and understanding. I have worked with him on a number of projects and have always found him to be a pleasure to work with and learn from.
