Ross - South Croydon - Piano

Methodology

Singing and piano lessons for all ages and abilities. Patient and friendly teacher.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach classical and musical theatre singing, piano and music theory. All ages and abilities welcome.

Lessons include: technique, song interpretation, acting through song, exam preparation, audition preparation, confidence building.

Music workshops: for schools, businesses, community groups etc. All are tailored to individual needs. From team building days to permanent sessions.

- How much do you charge?

Lessons are £20 for 30 minutes or £35 for one hour. Please note that this is charged per discipline if taking singing and piano lessons. (prices current from January 2012).

After the initial trial lesson, I ask that lessons are paid for in advance. I have a 48 hour cancelation policy in order for me to offer the slot to another student. Any lesson not cancelled within this time will be charged in full.

I teach in South Croydon (CR2). About 5 minutes from South Croydon rail station.

I can also teach from Central London. (This will incur an additional studio hire fee on top of lesson rate)

All ages and abilities welcome.

All graded exams. (ABRSM, Trinity etc.)
