Currently full and not taking new students (April 2018)

I'm an enthusiastic, encouraging & qualified piano teacher and love seeing my pupils improve and develop. I plan individually for each student, knowing that everyone is different and has their own goals, strengths and challenges as well as their own personality and learning style. I include sight-reading, technique, aural and music theory in lessons, I give guidance for practising and I also give stickers:-)

I teach children (from 5 years upwards) and adults. Before teaching piano, I was a primary class teacher, but I have discovered that I enjoy teaching all age groups, from early years learners to the retired! Both adults and children can take ABRSM practical and music theory exams if they'd like to, but they're not compulsory. Those who have taken exams with me so far have done very well and I have a 100% pass rate.

I'm a professional member of EPTA and achieved a distinction on their piano teachers' course (and, more importantly, learnt a lot!). I taught piano in Hull from 2010 to 2016 and was involved in the BBC's 'season of the piano' there, giving BBC Humberside radio presenter Phil White a crash course in piano. I now teach from my home in the Nascot Wood area of Watford.

I love music and love teaching, so if you'd like to learn, I could be the teacher for you!
