I prepare students for all graded exams of up to grade 8 ABRSM. To date, I have achieved a 100% pass rate with many students obtaining merits and distinctions but I also teach students who do not wish to go down the exam route. Sometimes students take exams through other exam boards.

I have over seventeen years experience of teaching and have received many positive written testimonials from (former) students including: "Thank you ever so much for your wonderful teaching. I have really enjoyed my lessons", "Thank you for being a great teacher and teaching me the piano" and "Thank you ever so much for your wonderful teaching. I have really enjoyed my lessons".
