Trained at Cambridge University and the Royal Academy of Music, I teach all levels of classical piano, from four-year-olds (a good age to start!) to adults. I am an experienced teacher working privately from my home. References available.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach the Piano.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
I have a Masters degree in music from Cambridge University, and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Piano Accompaniment from the Royal Academy of Music. I'm also currently studying for an MSc in Psychology, but that's just for fun! Having lived in France as a child, I'm bilingual in French and English.
- How much do you charge?
£42 an hour. The first lesson is a trial lesson so it's free! Young children tend to start with 20 minutes - all lessons are charged pro rata, so 20 minutes would be £14.
- Where do you teach?
I teach from my home in Grrenwich.
- When are you available?
I teach Monday to Friday from 3.30 to 8pm, and Saturdays from 9am to 6.30pm.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach all ages and levels. I am happy to teach young children - I find 4 a very good age to start, although I have sometimes taught children as young as 3. I also have many adult students, including several who started as complete beginners and are now some of my most accomplished students!
- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
It is entirely up to my students whether or not they do exams - if they wish to, we follow the ABRSM syllabus, although I would be happy to work with an alternative syllabus if preferred.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have been teaching piano for 12 years, privately and in schools. I have taught all levels from complete beginners to diploma-level. I also have concert and recording experience as a piano accompanist.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
- Where and with whom did you train?
I trained at Cambridge University with Hugh Wood, and at the Royal Academy of Music with Michael Dussek and Andrew West.
- Tell me about some of your current students.
Adam is a very enthusiastic and bright student who has been coming to me since he was 4. He is now 12, holds a music scholarship to a local private school, and is working towards his Grade 8. Carl is a lawyer who had his very first piano lesson 3 years ago. He is also now working towards his Grade 8.
