« Steven is friendly, calm and so knowledgeable about music. He will also go the extra mile. We were thrilled when Steven said he would play the piano at our wedding, he even travelled to Leicester! His knowledge and experience meant that he could adapt a piece to perfectly fit with the venue and logistics. It was such a special part of our day. »

Steven - South London - Music Tuition - Musicianship - GCSE - A-level

Methodology

A dedicated and enthusiastic piano teacher, with a focus on musical expression.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Classical and contemporary piano. Music theory, analysis and practical musicianship.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I hold several qualifications in piano performance, including a DipLCM, DipABRSM and ATCL (Distinction). I also hold an AMusLCM and LMusTCL in Music Theory, Grade 8 Music Theory and Grade 8 Practical Musicianship. I am committed to continuing professional development, and as such am undertaking an MMus in CPD mode at Royal Holloway University of London.

- How much do you charge?

Consultation lessons are charged at the full lesson price, but with no obligation. My current fee includes travel to students' homes, but within a 5 mile radius of CR0. Further charges may be required for more extensive travel, to be negotiated.

My standard fees are £45 per hour (Summer, 2018) and are non-negotiable.

- Where do you teach?

I usually teach at students' homes across south London, particularly the Croydon area, and occasionally in central London.

- When are you available?

Current availability is for lessons scheduled on Saturdays (late morning and afternoon). Other availability may be possible during weekday evenings.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

My teaching centres on intermediate and advanced level students, focussing on musical expression and musicality. I personalise my approach to the individual student and their particular goals/background.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I prepare students for graded and diploma examinations as appropriate, with Trinity College London examinations as my preferred board, although I do also regularly prepare students for ABRSM exams and occasionally LCM exams as well.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Online tutoring is available via Skype and email (including mp3/video recordings) for music theory and musicianship only.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I am a graduate of the University of Cambridge, Imperial College London, the Royal College of Music and Queen Mary University of London, where I have held both music and academic scholarships. I have over 15 years experience as a piano teacher, and have been playing and performing for a similar length of time.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

No

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am a member of ISM and EPTA UK.

Steven is friendly, calm and so knowledgeable about music. He will also go the extra mile. We were thrilled when Steven said he would play the piano at our wedding, he even travelled to Leicester! His knowledge and experience meant that he could adapt a piece to perfectly fit with the venue and logistics. It was such a special part of our day.

Diana
