I have been teaching piano and singing privately for some ten years and enjoy my work very much. I have an outstanding record of success at piano, classical singing and music theatre grades with 100% pass rate; the overwhelming majority of my students gain merits or distinctions.
I tailor a curriculum with weekly practice and lesson logs for each student and teach every student how to practice effectively.
Within the last twelve months several of my students have passed grade 8 classical singing and music theatre with distinction, others have passed performance diplomas and gained places at music college at undergraduate and post graduate level.
I do not continue to teach students who do not practice and keep in very regular contact with parents to review progress and potential.
The minimum standard that I will consider for a new singing student is grade 5 (or equivalent) although I do take on adult beginners who are motivated and who interest me.
Most of my piano students are intermediate to advanced but I will take beginners who demonstrate potential (on a trial basis only.)
My approach to teaching is friendly but businesslike. I will enquire about the health of the hamster but prefer to spend lesson time teaching not chatting.
I draw on my extensive experience as an ex-professional musician (read biog page for further details) and my qualifications to deliver consistent, purposeful teaching.
I offer lessons to students in Newport, Pontypool, Cwmbran and Blackwood (South Wales).
