Feel free to leave a message with any questions you may have. I would be happy to offer you my advice.
If you are searching for a teacher, you must already have an interest in studying music for yourself or your child.
As an experienced pianist and violinist, with 7 years’ teaching experience, I always put the needs of the student first.
My pupils have a 100% pass rate for ABRSM exams and all those who have the patience to practise diligently achieve distinction. I specialise in developing a personalised plan for each student from the first lesson, making sure they always go in the right direction and are clear about their goals.
I talk to students and parents after each lesson to give advice and set aims which will help students challenge themselves to improve.
Although many pupils take exams, I have found that the most critical thing to focus on is developing the student's ability to listen to and judge their own playing and understand what makes music come alive. When this skill is developed, all other musical goals become easier, whether they involve attaining grades, competing in competitions or preparing for recitals.
In lessons, I am extremely patient, but my goal is to inspire students into pursuing the highest standard they can achieve. It is my desire that students will take from their lessons feeling a sense of enjoyment for music and of continual progress.
If you believe I can help you in some way on your musical journey, please do not hesitate to contact me.
If you would like inspiration to achieve a high standard in music, I recommend the following books (which touch on similar points):
'Bounce' by Matthew Syed
'Peak' by Anders Ericsson & Robert Pool
'The Talent Code' by Daniel Coyle
For those interested in the life of a pianist:
'Piano Notes' by Charles Rosen
