Music Graduate with 5 years of teaching experience offering piano and violin lessons

Methodology

I specialise in performing and teaching Classical music (including Baroque, Romantic and 20th Century) but have also taught folk tunes as well as pieces for fun (like Harry Potter!)! As well as performance, lessons will cover music theory aspects that are vital for building a strong foundation in playing any instrument. This includes: note-reading, posture, scales & arpeggios, time signatures and more! These will be delivered in an informative but fun way and parents of current students have found that covering these aspects has resulted in a noticeable difference in their child's understanding and playing.

Background

I offer a fun, friendly and tailored tutoring service for anyone wanting to develop their skills or learn a completely new instrument. I have had experience tutoring since 2014 and am always happy to teach new faces!

My instruments are piano and violin and I am happy to teach complete beginners as well as those that may be more experienced. I am an ARSM-qualified and grade 8 pianist and grade 8 violinist. I have had extensive performance experience in both instruments having played both for 15 years. I am a recent graduate from the University of Leeds, having completed a BA Music degree. My degree focused on performance, film music and music theory. Whilst studying, I won two performance awards (Toothill Performance Award 2017-18 and The Ernest and Luther Gaunt Music Award 2018-19) for advanced ability and progress in performance.

Sammi has been my piano teacher for the past 3 years and has helped me complete grades 6-8 and helped me go to the Royal College of Music. I can not recommend her enough and you are in good hands with her.

Francesca

Sammi is an absolutely amazing teacher. She has helped me a great amount in improving my piano skills and my confidence in playing in front of other people. She is kind, patient and very enthusiastic about her music! I’d be over the moon if I could be even half as talented as she is one day!

Sammi is a super friendly tutor who makes sure the student gets results and enjoyment out of their lesson. She attends lessons fully prepared. For expamole, asking you what you’d like to improve on and then bringing a set of exercises and techniques to work on that, as well as identifying areas for improvement herself. Similarly, she’ll take suggestions as to what you’d like to play as well as suggesting pieces herself. She sets you tasks to overcome challenges between lessons. She demonstrates and explains things clearly to the pupil. I’d definitely recommend sammi as a tutor!

Lauren

Definitely would recommend! I recently decided to take up piano but was worried I started too late. Sammi was recommended to me by a friend and honestly I can’t thank her enough for my progress! She has been very patient and keen to help me as I build up my skills which really has put me at ease. I look forward to when I can start playing pieces :)
