My Experience as a Teacher

One day at the age of 8, I sat down at the family piano, picked up a copy of Beethoven’s popularly known ‘Moonlight Sonata’ and taught myself to play the first movement. I’d never played before but the sheet music was annotated with note names by one of the musicians or music lovers that I had been surrounded by in my family, and this first playing experience became one of my most joyful childhood memories.

After a few years of playing, accompanying and taking grades I began teaching my friends. So began a 30+ year teaching career which has been fuelled by the mutual excitement of discovering the skills for bringing beautiful music, favourite melodies and challenging technical demands into our own hands.

Since those early days, I have taught in schools and homes, both piano and music theory to all who wish to learn. From preschoolers, school starters, school leavers, university students, teachers, doctors, mothers with babies on their knees, fathers with toddlers standing at the end of the keyboard to retirees now able to follow a lifelong dream.

Advanced Lessons Available

I also offer more advanced lessons for students of all ages.

More About My Lessons

I teach classical, pop and musical theatre repertoire. I teach according to each musician’s own developing musical identity and I teach the importance of supportive posture, technical skills and musicianship. A lifetime of playing has taught me that freedom of musical movement and vitality is built on strength, flexibility and authentically expressing your own musical voice.

I have a BA Hons in Literature and Music, Qualified Teacher Status, over 30 years of piano teaching experience and my 20-year portfolio of ABSRM candidates has a 100% success rate.

I also love accompanying other musicians – whether new to the stage or performing Mozart arias, and joining the fun of preparing for performance to support soloists in their performances or grades.
