​Piano and Theory Teaching
both

Piano

I am a member of the European Piano Teaching Association (EPTA) and also the Curious Piano Teachers network. I hold the ATCL diploma and the DipABRSM in piano performance; also the Cert PTC in piano pedagogy, a BA (Hons) in Music, and an M Mus in Music Analysis.

My teaching studio is located in the village of Over (CB24), nine miles to the north-west of Cambridge.

I consider it very important for my students to enjoy making music, and I believe that this is best achieved by encouraging pupils to aim for the highest musical and technical standards of which they are capable. I treat each as an individual, preparing personal learning plans taking into account ambitions, musical tastes, and life circumstances. I focus on technique and musical detail right from the beginning and ensure students develop good habits and practise regularly.

I work with children from the age of five, and with adults of all ages, and from a wide variety of musical and personal backgrounds. I am confident preparing students for exams and other performance opportunities, and organise small student concerts. I am also equally happy to work with those who do not wish to take exams or perform, and for whom making music is a more private matter.


​Theory
I consider it important that all pupils gain structural understanding of the music they are playing; theory is additionally a pre-requisite for pupils wishing to take ABRSM practical exams past Grade 5 level. I therefore teach some theory as an integral part of all piano lessons, and also offer extra coaching for pupils wishing to take the exam.
