I have been teaching the piano to adults and children, beginners and advanced students for over 15 years.

My success as a piano teacher lies in a flexible approach that offers a programme and repertoire to suit each pupil's aims and aspirations. Many students enjoy the challenge of progressing through the Grades and I have had excellent success with candidates entered for the ABRSM examinations.

Other students may wish to explore the piano and its repertoire in a more relaxed style. It is a particularly enjoyable challenge to seek out beautiful music to suit less experienced hands. Bach's C major Prelude BWV 846 thrilled one older lady, while Coldplay's Yellow was proudly played to one young man's school.

A good technique is essential to produce a good performance. Through a range of fun exercises and more standard ones, I hope to encourage all of my students to develop a relaxed but firm technique that allows them to master all genres of piano repertoire.

Finally, my academic studies focussed on music theory and analysis which mean I have advanced competency in teaching theory but also have a depth of knowledge in analysing the form and structure of a piece and applying this to its interpretation through performance.
