One-to-one tuition in a relaxed atmosphere.
All tuition is tailored to suit each pupil, deliberately having no syllabus, just catering to the pupil's individual tastes and requirements.
Music of a pupil’s choice can be worked out and transcribed in front of them, enabling a thorough examination of the techniques involved in playing the piece.
Musical theory is covered to the extent that each pupil requires, though whilst encouraged, it is never forced upon pupils.

Plenty of room for parents/guardians/siblings/friends etc. to sit in on lessons.
