I am a very well qualified Piano Teacher and Pianist with over 25 years of teaching experience in schools and privately. I have also done work as a concert pianist in this country and abroad and have recently been appointed as a Music Examiner for the ABRSM. I presently work for a local authority as an instrumental music instructor in both secondary and primary schools, while doing a small amount of private teaching. I am also a fully qualified Class Teacher and fully registered with the GTCS (General Teaching Council for Scotland). I studied Piano at the RSAMD (now the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland) with Bernard King and won a scholarship to study at the Royal College of Music in London with John Barstow. I also studied with Alexander Kelly of the Royal Academy of Music in London. It's important to say I don't offer to teach all styles of music (pop, jazz, etc.), or indeed claim to be able to. I teach in the Classical style because that is where my expertise lies. I also believe that particular style to be the most important from a purely teaching point of view. I also teach Theory of Music at all grades. Obviously, I use the ABRSM exam system (for both practical and theory exams) with most pupils, but there is absolutely no obligation or requirement to take any ABRSM exams if studying with me. The advantage of these exams is that they support all the key skills required for good piano playing and musicianship, but I understand that they are not for everyone. My purpose is to foster a love of music in my students - that is the ultimate aim. I would also be very happy to work with adults - complete beginner or otherwise - who want to just increase and enhance their experience of music in general or piano in particular. Finally, there is no 'lock-in' to bundles of lessons at any time eg. a group of 5 or 10 lessons. You can try one or two to see if it's for you. If you feel you'd like to find out more with NO OBLIGATION or have anything clarified, I'd be very happy to talk to you! Please call or text and leave a message.
