- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Share the love of music and learn a new skill. I will encourage and support you all the way!

Music is about communication and expression of emotions. Within the constraints of an exam syllabus, learning an instrument can be rigorous. Sometimes this is beneficial, but I firmly believe it is to be an act of enjoyment, to be cherished and shared with friends, family or communicated to an audience.for the purpose of pleasure..

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have over 30 teaching experience covering a range of subjects and levels mostly in schools, having worked at Primary, Secondary, Special Ed and Adult Ed. I began as a classroom music teacher, but then branched out into TESL ( English Language teaching) and working with children in Special Education.
More recently I have taught at home and concentrated on piano teaching for over 10 years.
I like to make my lessons fun and include singing and rythmic activites to "get the melodic and rhythmic" components of music into the mind and body.
Learning an instrument needs to be approached progressively, or step by step. It is important to get the right skill match to each pupil's level of understanding and coordination. That is why I consider an integrated approach to learning. With young children I use tutor books that contain clear graphics and duets (with the teacher) and which have that "hands on" fun element..
I also prepare pupis for grade exams and teach from the Trinity Guildhall syllabus from Initial Grade to Grade 7

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

To be updated

- Where and with whom did you train?

Roehampton Institute ( now Roehampton University)
Open University
EPTA ( European Piano Teachers' Association)

- Tell me about some of your current students.

Currently, a few of my students are going to play in the EPTA non competitive piano festival in May which takes place in St Albans. The audience consists of parents and other students who are all keen to see how everyone has progressed throughout he year. The festival also provides students with the opportunity to run through their pieces prior to taking exams.
Last month, four of my students passed their piano exams with merit including one pupil at grade 6.
The average age of my students is between 8 - 10 years, although I have a six year old and am just about to begin teaching a child of four and a half years, although this is unsual.
I also have 4 adult students at the moment and one of them has special needs.
My most mature student, who is retired, has just taken her grade 1 exam, She is thoroughly enjoying her experience and is very dedicated.

Our child Monica has been taken piano lessons for nearly 2years. She passed grade 2 with ease. And although she wasn’t sure whether to continue or not, Miriam somehow got under her skin. Now she is anxious and can’t wait for the next lesson as Miriam is extremely patient, kind and helpful. Also we would highly recommend her to other kids.

Patient and Encouraging
I have been learning the piano with Miriam for two years now. I took up the piano as a complete beginner as an adult with no previous experience of learning an instrument. Since having lessons with Miriam I have passed the introductory and grade one exams and am now working towards grade two. She is incredibly patient and unfailingly encouraging and her lessons are both well planned and enjoyable. I always feel she is keeping a close eye on my progress. I strongly recommend her as a teacher.
