Newcastle based pianist offering music lessons - all ages and all abilities

Methodology

I am currently studying a Master's degree in music, specialising in contemporary improvisation with an emphasis on freedom of musical expression. My background is varied, having studied classical and jazz piano, as well as writing songs and composing across a range of genres. Therefore I am comfortable adapting to the pupil's wishes and teaching what interests them most!
I believe that music making should always be fun, aiming to inspire self-motivation and the desire to undertake private practice in my lessons. The focus is therefore on creative play and enjoyment, engaging with the instrument in a way which is enjoyable and rewarding.

Background

I have been giving lessons for about 2 years, mainly based in Latvia. Across that time I have taught around 10 pupils, ranging from complete beginners at 5 years old to adults wishing to rekindle an old hobby. So far my pupils haven't taken any grades, but I am happy to push towards grades if that's what you want to do!
