What I teach:
I am an experienced piano teacher, based in Mottingham (lessons are given on a Steinway grand piano). I teach students of all ages and abilities up to grade 8 and diploma levels, with a preference for students who already have some instrumental experience.

Teaching approach:
I have a passion for teaching, and adapt my approach to the needs, interests, and goals of the student, whether for targeting exams or recreation.

Alongside standard repertoire, I place a strong emphasis on building technique, which I consider is central to quick progression.

For those interested, I can spend some lesson time, towards the end, on pieces of interest to pupils. I find that playing music they can relate to from other contexts builds enthusiasm, as well as providing an incentive to practice and explore music themselves.

- e.g. less formal pieces (from musicals, film music, and other contemporary music), popular classical music (simplified versions are available and can be a good introduction to the genre), famous orchestral music arranged for the piano etc.

NB: For more advanced pupils who show interest: I can teach supporting skills such as aural training, sight-reading, singing, analytical skills, music theory, harmonic analysis, as well as discussing the piece’s broader background and differing interpretations.

Piano: £33/hour; Violin and Singing: £30/hour.
Trial lesson available.

Teaching location: Preferably at my home; I may be able to travel to nearby locations if more convenient.

Enhanced CRB check: Yes.
