An experienced, talented and versatile piano and vocal teacher. Bmus (Music) first class honours, PVG certified.

Methodology

My approach to teaching is unique and extremely adaptable to whatever stage you are at. I have extensive experience teaching all age groups and create bespoke lessons to ensure that you not only get the best value for money, but get the most out of the material we cover. We will focus on uncovering who you are as an individual and in turn, what we can do to help you become the type of performer you want to be.

Every musicians development is an exciting process to be part of and I look forward to starting your journey with you.

Experience

Rhian is an accomplished pianist and vocalist. She graduated from Edinburgh Napier University in 2019 with a first class degree in Music, where she specialised in voice and teaching. She is able to transfer her training in classical singing into pop and jazz styles and has incredible control over her vocals as well as a three octave range. Her ability to sing and perform in a number of styles makes her a versatile and sought after artist.

Rhian is a brilliant vocal teacher, she is so patient and puts the kids at ease.

My daughter has been taking singing lessons and her confidence grows all the time. She has just completed 2 ABRSM musical theatre exams which she received fantastic results due to the training given. Definitely Recommend!!!

Rhian used to be the musical theater teacher at the dance school my daughter attends.

She is always very positive and encouraging when teaching.

She explains everything really well and demonstrates when needed. This gives her pupils confidence.

We would highly recommend Rhian as vocal coach.

Rhian has been a real blessing to my teenage daughter.
I tried 2 other tutors before I came upon Rhian.
Rhian fits the bill perfectly.
My daughter has come on leaps and bounds with her singing in a quite short space of time.
Rhian is extremely personable and easy going and I would recommend her to anyone seeking a qualified tutor. She also makes my daughter's lessons fun!

We found Rhian through a friend’s recommendation and she’s been teaching my daughter for years. Rhian has really helped to build up her confidence as well as her skills and is always so patient. Rhian has gone above and beyond to ensure my daughter feels supported, especially through her piano exams. Could not recommend her more!
