I am an enthusiastic and highly motivated pianist, clarinetist and singer currently studying BA Music final year at Middlesex University London. I have been playing the piano for over fifteen years. I have a positive, fun, enthusiastic personality with strong interpersonal skills. I am organized, resourceful and passionate about the importance of music education.
One of my career goals is to encourage and care for children and adults alike by promoting their creative abilities through music. I am able to teach in a variety of technical exercises like scales, arpeggios, etc and a variety of musical styles, understanding music theory and performing live on stage. I am able to make you understand the sessions in a simple and interesting manner. I use an effective variety of teaching techniques to make lessons fun and enjoyable.

I teach from home (Harpenden Hertfordshire) as well as travel 1 mile if you have a piano/keyboard at home.

“Garshika is very knowledgeable in music, as she has years of experience and she is absolutely brilliant with teaching as well. My son is a 9-year-old boy, how was reluctant to attend a trial lesson at the beginning but after the lesson to my surprise, he enjoyed it a lot. Now he has become a regular student of hers. She assists us with what books to get and what kind of Piano to buy. So I would highly recommend for anyone to take her lessons irrespective of age and what level you’re in music.”
“My 5 year old is learning the piano with Garshika. My daughter really enjoyed the classes.”
“Only had two lessons with her for my 9 years old but still finding her really patience with children and friends. Overall I’m really happy with her.”
“My 6-year-old has recently started lessons with Garshika and has made good progress. She is patient. The lessons are well structured. He really enjoys the lessons.”
