Or find me on Facebook as Nicola Rumford, Piano Teacher

I am a highly experienced teacher, having taught the piano privately for 20 years. I offer one-to-one lessons, either face-to-face or online using Zoom and other remote teaching techniques. These lessons are open to pupils of all ages; adults are welcome. I teach all standards from complete beginners to Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) Grade 8.

My teaching style is relaxed, with enjoyment of piano-playing being paramount. I am very happy to teach those pupils who donít wish to sit exams, with lessons tailored to their interests.

For those pupils wishing to sit ABRSM exams I offer more structured lessons and thorough preparation of all exam components. My pupils have achieved a pass rate of more than 99%, with a high proportion obtaining Merits or Distinctions. One pupil who came to me as a complete beginner has been through all the grades with me culminating recently in a Distinction at ABRSM Grade 8.

The basis of my teaching is classical music; however, I also enjoy teaching blues/jazz. Lessons can include aural training, scales, sight-reading, theory, improvisation and composition. I incorporate Paul Harris's Simultaneous Learning approach to help pupils make connections between the different aspects of the music, and to make the lessons fun.

Face-to-face lessons are in Cambuskenneth, Stirling. Residential on-street parking is available.
