Internationally awarded concert pianist with 18 years of experience gives piano/music theory lessons

Methodology

My teaching methodology is based on the individual needs, pace and aims of my students. What all my students share in common is an exciting music teacher who can guide them in a professional, organised and cheerful way in order to achieve their goals and enjoy music.

Experience

I am a concert pianist with many prizes from international piano competitions. I have been giving piano and music theory/harmony lessons for 18 years, and my students have been awarded distinction and merit in ABRSM grades and have also won first prizes in competitions.
