« My 6-year son started his lessons with Ms Cathy around 6 months ago and he absolutely loves them! He started as an absolute beginner and I must say that I am truly impressed with how much he learned in only 6 months! Ms Cathy is absolutely amazing - fantastic attitude, makes learning fun and interesting with perfect balance between theoretical knowledge, learning how to read music and playing songs. I would definitely recommend Ms Cathy for your little one or for yourself! »

Cathy - Dresden and Florence - Piano

Methodology

I am a piano, keyboard and music theory teacher located in Stoke-on-Trent. I have experience preparing students for practical and theory exams. Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or would like to book a free trial lesson.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Piano, keyboard and music theory.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a BA Degree in Music, Grade 8 Electronic Keyboard, Grade 8 Piano, Grade 6 Music Theory, Child Protection in Education (Music) Level 2 and an enhanced DBS check.

- How much do you charge?

The first 30 minute lesson is free, after this I charge £11 for every 30 minutes.

- Where do you teach?

I teach from my home in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, in a relaxed but professional environment. The area I teach in is Dresden/Florence, close to Longton, Blurton, Trentham, Fenton and Hanley. I also teach private lessons at Amadeus Music Academy in Longton.

I will accept children from age four and I teach anyone above this age.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I teach piano, keyboard and music theory for both students wishing to take exams, and those who want to learn just for fun. I believe that playing an instrument should be an enjoyable experience for students, and aim to make the lesson fun and varied, tailored to the students goals and interests. I teach children as young as four years old up to any age.

I have a flexible approach to teaching, using a variety of methods to suit each student. I can prepare students for both practical exams and theory exams, or music of the student's own choice. I am happy to teach a variety of genres such as classical or pop music. My aim is not only to teach the student to play the instrument but to help them to become a skilled musician in general by helping them to develop their musical knowledge and other skills such as sight reading.

I teach from home in a relaxed but professional environment. The first lesson is free so you are welcome to come for a trial lesson to meet me and find out more about learning piano.

BA degree in Music
Excellent student pass rate
Grade 8 Keyboard

My 6-year son started his lessons with Ms Cathy around 6 months ago and he absolutely loves them! He started as an absolute beginner and I must say that I am truly impressed with how much he learned in only 6 months! Ms Cathy is absolutely amazing - fantastic attitude, makes learning fun and interesting with perfect balance between theoretical knowledge, learning how to read music and playing songs. I would definitely recommend Ms Cathy for your little one or for yourself!

I'm a mature beginner and feel I have made a good amount of progress in a short space of time with Cathy's advice. Cathy is very positive but still prompts me in ways I can improve my playing. I totally recommend.

My son started having lessons at Christmas and Cathy has taught him so much in that short period of time. Theo really enjoys going and is already showing off to family and friends the skills he has learnt. Cathy teaches to the ability of the individual and makes the learning environment pleasant yet focused.
