Notes:

The true job of the music teacher, is turning passion into artistry.

My approach to learning is based on the experiences I have gained, and the lessons I have learned from working in the music industry across the last ten years, as a composer, musician and
Piano teacher.

From our first lesson, students are encouraged to think and engage their instrument like a musician. They are taught to take pride in their achievements, to practice independently and be open to all genres of music in order to develop their inner ear.

I work with my students to construct their own independent repertoire of 6 songs that THEY love and WANT to learn. Pop, jazz, classical, contemporary- no genre is off limits. Alongside this, students are taught basic music theory relative to their instrument, whilst developing their technical abilities through scales and excersizes. After three months learning their setlist, we record those 6 songs to document progress, before choosing a new repertoire which reflects the students new & improved abilities!

This unique method keeps students progressing, whilst enabling them to be self reflecting, and to take pride in their musical journey. Furthermore, it inspires them with the knowledge that no song is off limits. In the 2 years I have used this method, dozens of my students, adults and children alike, have been able to make huge progress within relatively short spaces of time!

Whether you dream of becoming a Piano Virtuoso, a session musician or piano soloist, I can help bridge that gap between amateur and professional. However, my lessons are also perfect for piano Hobbysists too! If learning the piano is on your bucket list, or simply something you've always been curious about, you'll find that my lessons get you playing in no time!

I currently teach at schools 4 days a week, alongside my private lessons, however I am available for Skype lessons. Full DBS checked.
