Denise - St. Albans - Piano

Methodology

I am a friendly, patient teacher who embraces the fact that every pupil develops at their own pace regardless of age.I am also an opera singer having performed in London and Europe.I enjoy being creative and tailoring lessons to fit the student.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach Classical Piano and all styles of Singing. Also Music Theory to grade 8

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a Degree in Music (1st study piano performance) and an M.A. in Performance Arts.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £30 for piano lessons and for singing - £35 for adult singers. Discounts for more than one family member can be negotiated.

- Where do you teach?

I teach at home and at St Mary's School Ascot.

- When are you available?

Times are flexible, apart from Wednesdays or Mondays during term time.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach all ages usually from 6 - 76. All levels up to diploma.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

ABRSM exams - practical and Theory of music. Also Trinity Board for singers.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Learning an instrument is an invaluable experience which will nourish you for life. Music is another language, but goes beyond words - it is a deep form of self expression which is unique to each individual.I would like to facilitate this gift in each of my students with warmth and humour, so that their experience is enjoyable and effective.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have taught children and adults privately for over 20 years and also in schools. As well as giving private lessons, I currently teach singing at St Mary's Ascot and have taught there for 10 years.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes

- Where and with whom did you train?

I had piano lessons with Patricia Hancock at Colchester Institute School of music.

Singing lessons with Liz Vaughan, Noelle Barker, coaching with Christopher Gould and have taken part in master classes with Sarah Walker OBE.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

All my students pass exams usually with merit or distinction - I have never had anyone fail an exam.

I've learnt it's important to gage pupil's receptiveness/concentration/enjoyment during lessons,they learn more effectively if they are relaxed, happy, curious, enthusiastic and inspired.
