Piano Teacher Epsom - Nicholas McCarthy

Methodology

I am a fun and friendly piano teacher, teaching all ages and levels in Colchester and surrounding areas.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach Classical Piano to all levels and ages. I also teach Music Theory.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I graduated in 2012 from the prestigious Royal College of Music and in 2018 was made an Honorary Member of the RCM by HRH Prince of Wales.

- How much do you charge?

I offer all potential new students a free 30 minute consultation lesson. After that, if you decide you would like to have lessons with me, my fees are as follows*:

Piano Lesson per hour: £50.00

45 Mins: £37.50

30 mins £25.00

- Where do you teach?

I can either teach at my home in Colchester, or alternatively if you have a piano, I can travel to your home at a time which is convenient for you.

- When are you available?

I am very flexible with days and times I can teach, so negotiating a convenient time for both me and you wont be a problem.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach people aged from anything between 3 years old through to the more mature adult. Currently my youngest student is 4 years old and my oldest student is 86.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I can prepare my students for ABRSM instrumental and/or theory exams.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I have extensive 13 years experience teaching a wide range of students at my home in Colchester or travelling to students' houses. Asides from teaching i am an experienced concert performer and play regularly across the UK and Internationally.

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

I do have a a valid and up to date DBS certificate.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I graduated from London's prestigious Royal College of Music in 2012 and most recently (2018) have been made an Honorary Member of the Royal College of Music by His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I have a wide range of students of different ages and different backgrounds. I teach very young children as well as mature students, I always put emphasis on students enjoying their lessons that they have with me but with a focus on results. I have taken many students from complete beginner to Grade 8 and diploma level. Some of my students have even gone on to study at conservatoire and persue a career as a concert pianist.

My weekly Piano lesson with Nicholas is one of the highlights of my week, not only do I learn lots, but I enjoy the lesson immensely, I highly recommend his unique and fun teaching style

R
Richard

I have had lots of different piano teachers since I was 7, but I found I got bored easily so gave up quickly, however since learning with Nicholas I have found each lesson to be fun and interesting therefore I have stuck with what he has taught me and am now about to take my ABRSM Grade 6 Exam
