« Over ten years of her coaching our three daughters in piano, we really appreciated Mary's approach – helping each to select challenging but appropriate repertoire, achieving great exam results and always taking due care with technique. Can honestly say the girls enjoyed every lesson. All three continue to play, the eldest now with her own piano students, the younger two reading Music at university and very pleased to have acquired excellent keyboard skills to support their string first studies. »

Over ten years of her coaching our three daughters in piano, we
really appreciated Mary's approach – helping each to select
challenging but appropriate repertoire, achieving great exam results
and always taking due care with technique. Can honestly say the girls enjoyed every lesson. All three continue to play, the eldest now with her own piano students, the younger two reading Music at university and very pleased to have acquired excellent keyboard skills to support their string first studies.

Mary is a fantastic tutor of the absolute highest calibre. As an adult learner coming back to the piano after a number of years, she has helped re-introduce me to the delights of playing the piano. Her attention to detail and focus on proper technique means that I improve my skills whilst also playing pieces which I enjoy.

Mary taught all 3 of our children at the RCM JD. Her teaching was of such high quality and inspiring that two of them achieved Grade 8 with distinctions and one Grade 7 with merit. Mary developed their love of the piano to such an extent that they achieved very high standards and accolades. Our youngest at the age of 11 won the Sheila Mossman prize for the highest mark in the country at Grade 6. It was a pleasure to know Mary and we consider our children were very privileged to have been taught by her.
