« (From an adult piano student who was relocating) Thank you so much for teaching me so expertly over the past 2 years and for all your inspiration. I have hugely enjoyed our lessons and rediscovered the motivation to practise and improve, something that almost completely disappeared since leaving school all those years ago. Our lessons have been something of a highlight for me! Thank you very much indeed. »

Jeffrey - Balham - Clarinet

Methodology

I am a professional teacher who has been teaching for many years in South West London and am author of the book The Art of Practising the Piano (Stainer and Bell) which has remained one of the best selling books on the subject for the last 20 years.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach piano and theory to Grade 8 level and clarinet and flute to Grade 5 level.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a BA degree and Masters degree in Music. I also hold an LTCL diploma in piano teaching and LRSM diploma in clarinet teaching.

- How much do you charge?

I charge 40.00 per hour arranged in series of 10 lessons but will offer a one hour introductory or consultation lesson at £50 without any obligation to continue. 30 minute lessons are offered to young beginners.

- Where do you teach?

I teach from home, close to Balham mainline (10 minutes from Victoria) and underground stations (Northern line) in SW London. Balham is situated close to Tooting and Clapham in Wandsworth.

- When are you available?

LImited vacancies early in week.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach children from the age of 7 upwards from beginners to advanced (Piano) or beginners to intermediate (Clarinet and Flute). I also teach adults who have availability to come for lessons during the day or evenings early in the week.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

ABRSM Prep test and Grades 1 to 8

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I enjoy teaching beginners so that I can start them off in a way that they will develop a love of music and not acquire bad habits that have to be changed later. Whatever level I am teaching at I aim to make lessons enjoyable, valuable and fun.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been a member of the Incorporated Society of Musicians since about 1986 and have taught children and adults privately at all levels since then. I have lectured on the subject of practising, composed educational music, including An Alphabet of Piano Pieces, and have examined for The Guildhall School of Music. I am author of the book The Art of Practising the Piano published by Stainer and Bell (1993) which is still one of the most extensive works on the subject. It was recently given as recommended reading in Pianist Magazine (Feb/March 2016). I also run an organisation called EduStage which was set up to teach young people the skills involved in musical theatre.

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

I have been CRB checked and have evidence to show this.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Incorporated Sociey of Musicians

- Tell me about some of your current students.

My current students range from complete beginners to Grade 8. They are either learning for pleasure or working towards a Grade exam.

Thank you so much for teaching Daisy to play the piano. I can't believe all those years have passed! Congratulations on your skilful handling of such a strong-minded pupil. Your encouragement, support and above all, patience, have ensured that Daisy has a great love and knowledge of the piano, that she will always carry.
