Notes:

I am a private piano teacher based in London and will travel to you!

If you are looking for a friendly, experienced and knowledgable tutor in classical piano for yourself, or your children, then I can help! Having recently obtained my degree in piano performance from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, I am qualified and confident in guiding you to achieve your musical goals and ambitions, whether you are wanting to learn for enjoyment, exams or both!

I have almost 5 years of experience teaching privately and enjoyed working as a tutor at an independent music school with many students at different levels and ages. I tailor and structure lessons to best suit the individual with the intention of making your music learning personal, enjoyable and engaging. It is important to have a comfortable, open and relaxed learning environment, allowing you to learn the most efficiently and hopefully have fun doing so!

To ensure that you become a well rounded musician with a skill that will last a lifetime, lessons will cover everything including hand shape, posture, reading of notation, musical expression, technique, theory and much more. If you are a beginner or haven't been playing long, I will make sure that good habits are taught and formed from the start to create a strong foundation that will allow you to go far in your musical journey.

From my past tutoring experience, I have found that the method of simultaneous learning works well with many students and is much more enjoyable for the learner. In a nutshell, simultaneous learning involves getting rid of the typical, often demotivating and reactive method of focusing on mistakes and 'using this part of the lesson for scales, then this time spent for sight reading' etc., instead, being proactive and combing multiple elements into activities that keeps the learner interested and engaged, developing many areas of their musicianship at once.

I teach students from the age of 8+, and have experience preparing students for exams from the main boards including ABRSM, LCM and Trinity Guildhall. I have a 100% pass rate for all students who have taken exams under my tuition.

DBS, Educare Child Protection and Child Safeguarding & Protection certificates all available upon request. I am also a member of the ISM (Incorporated Society of Musicians), the UK's professional body for musicians.
