Composer and pianist conservatoire graduate offering piano, composition and theory lessons in London

Methodology

I teach piano lessons for beginners to advanced students of all ages, having experience in working with students of all abilities and ages. In the piano lesson we will cover:
- Accompaniment
- Note reading
- Rhythm exercises
- Musical expression
- Improvisation
- Possible singing and piano
- Working towards doing grades (if the student wishes)
- Fun and interesting repertoire (part prescribed by myself and also including any requests the student may have)

I also teach composition lessons, having received world class training from Errollyn Wallen MBE and Stephen Montague at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. In the lesson we would cover:
- Harmony
- Techniques
- Orchestration
- Arranging
- Improvisation
- History
Usually, the student will bring the work(s) they are working on and they can have a discussion about the piece(s), but I can also set composition tasks to help further the student’s aims.

In a theory lesson, I would cover all the theory needed, having knowledge of all the exams boards specifications and from over 4 years of training from the conservatoire. Theory lessons are often seen as daunting, but I would make sure they are taught in a relaxed, fun manner, with exciting exercises and examples of how theory is put into use in other works.

My first priority in a lesson is that the student is comfortable. I understand that lessons are often daunting and therefore I like to adapt my teaching methods to each student’s needs. We would work together to figure out what you were wanting to achieve and learn (whether it doing grades, music theory, A-level, undergraduate, etc.) and then find a pathway that suits you.

Experience

I London-based, Yorkshire-born composition graduate (with secondary focus on piano) who studied at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. Since graduating I've had a lucrative freelance career, performing in The Place Theatre, Lyric Hammersmith and getting commisions from National Youth Theatre. I've been teaching for the past two years here in London and I'm truly passionate about music being as accessible to all.
