Super qualified Piano teacher with 33 years experience in Margate area - starting now with online and from Jan 2021 face to face lessons.

Methodology

I start from where you are - recheck the basics you have been taught. I build on from there making the necessary tweaks (if needs be) to help you to build on the proper foundations. I am caring but firm and really effective in my personalized strategy to bring out the best in you. My CV speaks for itself.

Experience

I have both a bespoke 'Degree' and 'Teachers Licentiate in Music' (Piano). Over 33 yrs experience teaching - been HOD of Music in a Private School. Some of my pupils are now 'Teachers and 'Performers' in their own right. I prefer to do online for now and as the Covid situation improves "one on one" from Jan 2021. My husband is the Lead Chaplain at Canterbury and Margate Hospitals.
