« 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! »

Experienced piano tutor & Medical student giving online weekend lessons up to Grade 3

Methodology

What kind of piano lessons do you offer?
My lessons are tailored for you, whether you want to start your piano journey, learn to play specific pieces or go through the ABRSM grading system.

Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I teach online via Skype, Microsoft Teams, Whatsapp and any other platforms the student might prefer. During lockdown, I transferred all my lessons online and so I have a lot of experience teaching piano online.
I use a phone stand and keys that light up so that the student can clearly see what I am playing. On the students' end I know what the student is playing by ear so equipment beyond a keyboard/piano is not necessary. Furthermore, on request I record tutorials and share them with students so that they can easily practice songs we went over in the previous lesson.

What subjects do you include in your piano lessons?
- Sight reading
- ABRSM Grades 1 - 3
- Playing by ear
- Music Theory

Do you have a syllabus?
Yes, I follow my own syllabus of pieces to learn and musical knowledge based on the students' level, then follow the ABRSM syllabus if the student is working through the grades. However my lessons are very flexible as I don't believe in a "one size fits all" kind of lesson. The content I teach depends on the student's abilities and personal preferences.

Experience

Hi, I'm Joanna. I'm a Medicine student at BSMS and a tutor with over five years experience and an Enhanced DBS check. I teach both children (from the age of five) and adults, so all ages are welcome. I specialise in teaching primary & lower secondary school students.

What are your qualifications?
I have played piano for the last 12 years (from the age of six) and guitar for the last four years. I am currently studying for my Grade 5 piano exam. I also studied Music at GCSE level and achieved a grade 7 (A). Combined with my extensive teaching experience and the progress my past and current students have made in their studies, I am confident at teaching beginner to intermediate level piano.

Tell me a bit about your current students.
I currently teach four students in the KS1 year groups, three students in the KS2 year groups, two students of secondary school age and two adults. I have taken a few of these students through the ABRSM Prep test, am taking three students through the Grade 1 exam and am teaching one of these students piano pieces at a Grade 4 level.

We booked Joanna because she received excellent grades in her GCSEs, had plenty of experience teaching GCSE subjects and because she described her teaching process quite well in her bio. She was also planning to do a degree course in Medicine, something which my son is considering.

When she started providing English Language & Literature lessons to my son we quickly realised that she was very thorough and quick to gain an understanding of his needs and weaknesses. She prepared homework that was tailored for him. We are confident that her efforts and her approach to teaching will help my son to lift up his grades in the subjects that Joanna is helping him with.

Joanna is friendly and personable and interacts well with my son to stimulate his thinkng and to help him pick up new skills. I would definitely recommend Joanna for any GCSE student wishing to reach the upper GCSE grades.

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 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.
