My name is Val and I love teaching the piano and I live in Linslade in Leighton Buzzard.
I currently have several spaces for new pupils.
I teach all ages from beginners to Diploma standard.
My rates are:
£18 for 30 mins and £36 for 60 mins for beginners up to Grade 4.
Grade 5 upwards £20 for 30 mins and £40 for 60 mins.
......And here's just a little history for your information. For further info see my Biography in Profile.

Initial training at the Royal College of Music in London. Further training in Vienna and Zürich.
I taught and played and worked in Europe and Japan and after 24 years I moved back to the UK in 2001.
Teaching both privately at my home and visiting a 'special needs' school in Hertfordshire. Based in Bedfordshire I am also within easy access of Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire.
I am happy to teach for personal pleasure, exams and concerts.
The physiological aspect of playing the piano is very important to me and I encourage my pupils to have a good posture and to understand how to use the fingers, wrists and arms, to be relaxed and play with control to be able to enjoy themselves.
I offer 'drop-in' sessions for those who want to 'get going' again after a break or have some technical issues which they might need help with.
I believe the piano is the best instrument to start with BUT I do enjoy playing the 'cello and descant and tenor recorders for fun!I

I look forward to hearing from you to book your first fun lesson!
