My Mission

Hello again! It’s brilliant you are reading this and taking the first steps towards a future with more piano in it! I am Emma and I am a very passionate piano teacher who specializes in providing tailored learning experiences for all players. Lessons can be taken in various ways: one to one, in small groups or online.

I have a strong teaching background that stems from being a fully qualified secondary/a-level music classroom teacher alongside sixteen years of professional performance experience.

My Lessons

Enjoy Learning

To provide the best learning experience and the most successful outcomes, I would always begin with a student’s musical preferences and aspirations. There are no right or wrong reasons to begin music tuition – the best of course being YOU LOVE IT! There are several options along the way, formal examination focus, mastering a favourite song or a mixture of both. There will always be a portion of the sessions devoted to technique, reading music and industry standards.

The most important part of learning is developing your own confidence and enjoyment. If you are playing music you care about, you will progress at an encouraging pace. I teach players from six years and beyond and it is never too late to begin!

My Experience as a Teacher

Throughout my teaching career I have been able to gain experience in all areas of musical learning from writing whole school music curriculums to taking a complete beginner all the way through to their final instrumental examination. With my own professional performance experience, I am able to give learners an insight into how to adapt their learning if they wish to pursue performance. I can also offer support and guidance for auditions, composing and recording.

My years as a musician on the road has given me the skillset to teach any musical style. I also have industry standard knowledge and can assist those who wish to get out regularly performing and succeed at it.

My experiences on stage have enabled me to guide learners into the best methods of rehearsing, coping with stage fright/nerves and performance technique. I aim to provide an approachable and open forum for students to feel they can get support and help whenever they need it.

More About My Lessons

For beginner players I offer them a stable foundation of skills to get their piano playing off to a great start (with a real focus on fun for the very young!). Alongside this student’s will always be offered to choose their own pieces which helps to propel their progress. Establishing a structured method of practice is also discussed in each lesson to ensure all students understand what they are playing and why.

Intermediate players are offered all of the above, especially if they are returning from a break in their playing. If they are a seasoned player their instrumental technique will be pushed further using examinations and personal playing goals. There are also regular concerts organized throughout the year that enable all players to perform to an audience.
