Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have 11 years of experience working with students from 4-70, from beginners' to advanced level. I am able to create a supportive and positive learning experience for my students, and have helped many of them, who previously considered giving up piano prior having lessons with me, to enjoy learning and achieve fantastic results. All my students are awarded with either Distinction or Merit in their exams. I have experience giving individual and group lessons, teaching in school and privately at home. I have worked as a music therapist in a special school and currently work for Richmond Music Trust.

I have taught Mathematics in Saturday school up to GCSE standard and also have experience giving tuition in a Kumon Centre.

Yes.

British Association for Music Therapy

My students come from all walks of life: I have students from high achieving private schools to four year-olds starting the piano for fun, from adults learning piano for leisure to pupils aiming to study music at university level.

First and most importantly, I find our lessons very enjoyable- the time seems to whizz by. I also learn a great deal from you at every lesson and be it scales, pieces or sight reading, I always play these much better by the end of our lesson than the beginning.

I am very satisfied with my piano lessons. It's easier because if I find it difficult then I try different techinques which helps.

P
Parent

My daughter did so well in her solo at school yesterday and l am really proud of her. She appears to be confident and without score all from memory. She receives various good comments from school teachers and parents. Thank you for teaching and exploring her potential and l am pleased that two of you getting along so well together.

I believe that the practice and homework you set is a real strength of yours. It helps consolidate what I have learnt at the lesson, enables me to prepare for the next one. You always seem to choose the right homework to set, such that my playing improve as much as possible between the lesson and the next.

I was very pleased to achieve a Grade 2 Distinction for which you should take a lot of credit.

I am very pleased with the progress I have made with you since we started piano lessons about two years ago. I feel my playing and the feeling I put to it has improved greatly.
