Piano Lessons

I teach all levels from complete beginners to advanced piano students, including preparation for ABRSM and Trinity exams. My experience covers classical, contemporary, pop, rock and musical theatre styles.

Teaching style

  • My experience covers classical, contemporary, pop, rock and musical theatre styles.

  • In preparing my lessons I endeavour to make them as educational and fun as much as possible.

  • I’m patient with my students. Some people require more instructions while others understand with a simple sentence.

  • I’ll recommend titles that my students should purchase. To a beginner, all books look the same, just in different colours.

  • With younger students, I try to get the parents to help. Make a practice calendar for them and show their parents.

  • I would encourage my students to participate in student’s concerts, community events, festivals and I like to give challenges to the talented students by accompanying singers/ instrumentalists or to join an ensemble.

  • I have knowledge of examination board content and protocol and the ability to play the piano in a range of styles. Moreover, I am able to differentiate the teaching techniques required to suit each student's learning needs and level and to provide a variety of individual teaching styles.

  • I try to find interesting pieces for my students. There are many piano books in different genres for all different levels. If they enjoy the pieces, they'll want to practice more.

  • I teach my students the tricks and tips that helped me become a better pianist.

  • I try not to bore my students with talking, but get to know them and show "How to practice effectively." Show them tips for learning a piece quickly and have them show how they do their practicing.

  • As a professional music teacher, I know how to sequence and teach musical concepts and how to develop the technical ability and structure of the hands as they grow.
