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

Methodology

I like to tailor lessons to individual students depending on their needs. I have a fun and hard working approach, and like to encourage all musical elements and creativity.

Experience

I am a vocalist, pianist and percussionist currently teaching in schools and at my home studio. I have performed with Ed Sheeran and for Prince Charles among others. I have a degree in Jazz music and was originally classically trained. Due the the Coronavirus outbreak I am offering online lessons via the platform 'Zoom'. The usual safeguarding policies will be followed and parents can be present or nearby during lessons.
