Piano lessons, exam coach & accompanist, theory & aural teacher SE24

I am a very experienced teacher, having taught the piano to hundreds of students both privately and at several London schools. Most piano pupils start with me in Year 3 but I occasionally take younger children if they show particular aptitude. Students usually stay with me until they leave for university. 

My emphasis is very much on enjoyment and confidence. I teach note reading thoroughly without shortcuts and take care to find music that matches each child's emotional and technical development. I am a paragon of patience but will also accelerate learning as appropriate.

I also prepare and accompany instrumentalists for exams, teaching them how to get the most out of performing with a live pianist and helping the majority achieve Merits and Distinctions. Several of those I accompanied last summer achieved full marks. I have a good understanding of the technical demands of other instruments, having run a school instrumental department for many years.

I regularly teach to Grade 5 theory and have helped many instrumentalists prepare for the aural part of their exam.

I teach at home on a lovely grand piano. I studied music at RCM and Oxford university.

I look forward to hearing from you on pianotutor@outlook.com
