Iím a friendly, supportive and patient teacher with 11 years' experience, happy to take on students of all ages (it's never too late!). I go at the student's pace, with gentle encouragement. If you are looking for a teacher who pushes students through one exam a year, whether they are ready (or enjoying it) or not, I'm not the right teacher for you. While most children are keen to take exams, others (and especially adult students) are not, and that's absolutely fine with me!

My students enjoy their lessons and see exams as a mark of progress rather than mountains to be climbed. They have a 100% pass rate (ABRSM), with 9 in 10 gaining Merit or Distinction marks. My students have also won their classes at the Pangbourne College Piano Festival.

I teach from home, on my beautiful grand piano, and also at Elstree School in Berkshire (thus I am DBS checked). I have some experience teaching children with ADHD and autism. I'm also a mum of two boys, both enthusiastic musicians!

I don't have vacancies often, but I keep a waiting list and places do come up. It's always worth an enquiry! Please feel free to email (katep at me dot com) as an alternative to calling.
