Ability Levels: Beginners to Advanced


Hello all,

I am a graduate from the Guildhall School of Music. During my four years at GSMD I studied under Laura Roberts and Simon Purcell. Since graduating I have enjoyed a busy international performing and teaching career.

I am offering piano/jazz tuition at my home in Walthamstow on my lovely Yamaha C3x. I am also willing to travel to your home if you have a piano.

I have much experience teaching all ages and ability, teaching jazz on summer and weekend courses and teaching classical piano in schools.

Being a flexible musician myself I am comfortable teaching traditional methods as well as more modern methods. I understand that many students today do not wish to learn how to read music and instead wish to learn chords and learn how to improvise and play by ear. Whatever the students own needs, I am confident and comfortable working with them.

I practice Classical Piano daily and am equipped to teach up to grade eight.

Ability is not an issue as I have taught the very beginner through to the advanced and I am very patient with students.

If you are interested, please drop me a line on [email protected]
