Singing/Piano Lessons for children - Online lessons via 'Zoom' video conferencing app

Methodology

I am an experienced teacher, currently teaching in schools and at my home studio. Due to the Coronavirus outbreak I am offering lessons online. I like to tailor lessons to individual student's needs. Lessons are fun and comprehensive, with suitable songs and books recommended. A creative approach is taken, specialising in contemporary vocals and beginner piano.

Experience

Piano and singing lessons in over 40 schools, groups and one-to-one. Primary and Secondary. Performances with Ed Sheeran, for Prince Charles, and more. Tours of UK, USA, Canada, Pakistan and Europe. Songwriting and studio production for film and TV.
