For online lessons, I use Whatsapp, Skype or Zoom. We first start by going over theory and sight reading, then practice scales. We then spend the rest of the lesson going other either freestyle mainstream/classical songs or practicing the ABRSM pieces if we’re working towards an exam.
For new beginner students, we usually spend the first six sessions establishing the basics, then the next twelve sessions learning and developing freestyle songs of increasing difficulty level. This is until I feel we’re ready to take on either the Prep grade or Grade 1.
Youtube (synthesia piano videos) are usually very helpful, and I share relevant clips to students so they can have guidance on the songs when practicing in their own time.
I am a year 13 sciences student who has tutored twelve students over a period of six years, ranging from 5 to 12 year olds, teaching both freestyle songs and the ABRSM exam content from Prep level up to Grade 2.
Both in piano and in guitar, I used YouTube videos to learn pop songs, and after studying Music at GCSE level, I am currently working towards the Grade 5 exam. This allows me to teach both exam content for the grading system, while also teaching students any classical or mainstream songs they would like to learn.
Travel costs depend on how far away you are - if it takes anywhere from 45 mins to an hour and a half to travel to you via public transport then travel costs can vary from £5 - £10. However, in this case discounts can be made for additional online lessons if taken with live lessons.

Perfect! Joanna is a really great tutor. She has been teaching my 6year old for nearly two months now, and he ‘s made very noticeable progress since starting his piano lessons with Joanna, and has taken interest in the subject. It is a pleasure to hear him repeat what he learnt during the lessons. Joanna is very competent , knows and delivers her subject area very well (both theory and practice), and tailors her lessons very well to her client’s learning style. She has also been very professional and reliable. Can’t recommend her enough!
Thank you Meriem. It has been a pleasure to teach.
Joanna is teaching piano for my 9yrs old daughter. Here is what my daughter said about her: “I really like her because my fingers are becoming more flexible. I just had 2 lessons with her and already I can play two songs. This is such a remarkable achievement for me. She teaches patiently and in a fun way. 1 hour seems like 10min only. A difficult song became simple to play with her guidance. I really recommed her as a teacher for piano lesson.” :D
Joanna, is a very polite, professional, trustworthy and diligent individual.
She provides piano lesson to my daughters
She is always on time and my duagthers like her very much.
She is good with them and they have learnt a lot from her lessons, as joanne is patient and has a great strategy of teaching.
Joanna has been teaching my 5 year old daughter how to play the piano for nearly a year now. My daughter has made very good progress during this time and is peparing for her first test. She is very patient and explains the theory very simply so that my daughter can pick up the terminology. Her teaching methods of of balancing theory with playing the piano during the lesson keeps my daughter engaged throughout the lesson. Joanna is someone my daughter looks up to and is inspired to play as well as Joanna, she builds really good relationships with her students. Joanna is exceptionally polite and comes across professional all the time. I would highly recommend Joanna as piano teacher.
