Keyboard Teacher Gillingham Dorset - Vera

Methodology

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach Keyboard and Piano.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

Cert Ed. Teaching Certificate.

- How much do you charge?

£18 hour for keyboard or piano. First lesson (half an hour) free of charge. I do not normally travel as I have so many students attending my home. However, I can make exceptions depending on circumstances. I also teach in 4 primary schools.

- Where do you teach?

I teach in my own home. My postcode does not really tell the right tale as to where I live (very close to Gillingham, Dorset, also 3 miles from Wincanton (Somerset) and 1 mile from Mere (Wiltshire).

- When are you available?

I teach Monday to Saturday 8.30 am to 8.30 pm throughout the year including Easter and Summer holidays. I take 4 weeks holiday at Christmas.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Experienced in teaching young children from 5 years of age through to Senior Citizens

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I have a very patient and friendly approach to students in order to ensure that students feel welcome and comfortable. Parents may sit in for one or two lessons with young children. I have a comfortable lounge where parents can wait (home from home).

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

30 years experience in teaching piano and 15 years teaching keyboard. 100% pass rate in exams over this period of time

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

Yes I have one for each County (Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire)

- Where and with whom did you train?

Trained many years ago with a private tutor and obtained all grades in piano by the age of 13. Could not take Teachers Certificate at that time because I was not old enough. Obtained Cert Ed teaching certificate 30 years ago.
Adapted to keyboard tuition as I realised the need for advancement in this subject. Studied exam requirements and attended many seminars on this subject. Keyboard is now a speciality subject.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Fellow of the Institute of Sales, Marketing and Management. F.Inst.SMM (awarded for length of time in self employment with proven business success)

- Tell me about some of your current students.

Several of my current students have been with me for 7 years. I do have a number of retired people so there is no age limit to learning. My youngest student started at 5 years old (now 8 and doing very well).
