It is rare to find such a knowledgeable and inspirational teacher as Stamatia.
I have derived great benefit from her expert tuition which has helped me to improve my technique and enabled me to tackle more challenging repertoire. I would recommend her to anyone with an interest in piano playing.

Jeanette

'Stamatia Statherous has been my piano teacher for more than a year now...
I started with the express wish of making a recording in nine months and
she guided me expertly and successfully to that aim...I leave each lesson bounding with pleasure and raring to go.'

J
Joyce

I have been having lessons with Stamatia for two years to prepare for my diploma/DipABRSM exam. She is very helpful and knowledgable in what she is teaching. Her excellent piano techniques helped me learning the difficult parts of the pieces a lot easier.

Dr. Statherou is an attentive and compassionate teacher who possesses a thorough understanding of what it is about music that makes students want to learn. I would leave each lesson with a genuine renewed excitement and interest in music, and the resulting progress I made in just a year both in terms of technique and understanding was remarkable. I highly recommend her tutorship to anybody wishing to advance in musical studies, no matter what their current ability level or purposes in doing so.

J
James

'Stamatia has been teaching me composition with piano performance for just over two years. In this time my skills for both have improved dramatically. I have written choral and orchestral scores for the first time. These works have been commercially released and one has won an arts award...I am very happy to give her the highest recommendation possible to anyone. I promise you she will up your game!!'

G
Glen

I have been taking piano lessons with Stamatia for a little over two years now... Stamatia possesses a truly encyclopedic knowledge combined with obvious natural talent as both a pianist and a teacher, I would not hesitate to recommend her tuition to anyone wanting to learn something new or further their abilities.”
