Ability Levels: Intermediate to Advanced


I teach piano from intermediate (Grade 3 equivalent) to advanced level. I also teach theory, usually as part of the piano lessons. I can travel to pupils if it fits with my itinerary; alternatively I teach on a baby grand piano in my studio. Dedicated adults and children are equally welcome.

I focus on developing a thorough grounding in musical fundamentals that can lead into any style of playing. This includes piano technique, interpretation, music theory and musicianship. I have had pupils gain Distinction at all Grades 1-8, and one young lady successfully auditioned for the Royal Northern College of Music Junior School. We also have a lot of fun away from grades, with band events, masterclasses, lockdown videos, and even street piano in Liverpool!

I do have high (but realistic!) expectations of my pupils, and they should have the time and motivation to engage with music in general, as well as devoting to practise. If a pupil wishes to pursue grades, I recommend lessons of 45 minutes or longer, purely to get through all the required material.

Please visit my website to gain much more information about my teaching and other musical activities:

I am CRB-checked (renewed in 2021).
