Music is a valuable skill for life which not only brings joy to you and those around you but also encourages us to think in new and varied ways. It gives me great pleasure to be able to pass on the joy of music to others.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach piano from beginners to grade 5 level, music theory following the ABRSM syllabus, GCSE music (please specify which syllabus is being used) and beginner composition.
Piano lessons will include theory and aural skills. I will tailor all lessons to the students' musical preference so if there is a specific area you want to focus on or a particular style of music you enjoy/want to learn, do not hesitate to ask!

I have a Bachelor of Music degree - first class honours in Musical Composition - and grade 8 piano.

Privately I charge £30.00 per hour, £16.00 per half hour. I offer a half an hour trial lesson for all new customers and can offer flexible durations.

During the week I teach at students' homes. I am based in St Albans and teach in the surrounding areas such as Chiswell Green, How Wood and Park Street. I am happy to travel to these and other nearby areas.
On Saturdays I teach at Robertson Music School on St Albans Road, Watford.

Charlotte is a great teacher. I've been having theory classes with her for the past few months and has helped me get up to near Grade 5 standard. She is helpful, supportive and I thoroughly enjoy the lessons. I look forward to moving onto composition with her soon!
