Hello, I am Annekatrin and I am a friendly, qualified and experienced teacher with a Bachelor's degree in Musicology, having specialised in piano, singing, Music Theory and Music History. Before moving to Britain, I worked as a Music Dramaturg at The National Theatre in Weimar, Germany, producing operas and musicals and teaching the piano. I now live in South Warwickshire and I teach from home and in schools. I am married with three grown-up children. Apart from music my other passions are walking and cooking.
After gaining Qualified Teacher Status in 2005 I have been working in schools, colleges and teaching from home. I am experienced with all aspects of the Exam requirements set by the ABRSM, and many of my pupils enjoy the challenge of working towards a piano or music theory grade.
Piano tuition has been my passion for a long time and allows me to be supportive and creative, motivating and encouraging students to reach their potential. I create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and make lessons interactive and fun. One-to-one tuition is very productive, because it adapts to the individual learner's needs effortlessly. I teach the fundamentals of piano practice including piano technique, reading music, memorising, mental play, the foundations of music theory and recognising shapes and patterns in music. But most of all my students are encouraged to experience joy and fun when learning and practising the piano and becoming familiar with the beautiful piano music and their composers.

She is always punctual, sweet natured and professional. Our children adore her. She has a natural aptitude for engaging with them and brings special toys, songs & mascots to make her visits special to them. She is also a gifted teacher for adults, and my husband, who never learned conversational German, finds her guidance clear, insightful and never patronizing.
Currently we hope this is a very long term arrangement where we can work with Annekatrin to help our whole family develop our skill and secure our love of German conversational skills and culture.
Delighted to have found her, and can recommend her highly.
I will be happy to continue … Kind Regards
Nothing is too much trouble for Anna - she is punctual and totally reliable. If I ever have to contact her via e-mail to ask a quick question or change anything she replies immediately and is extremely accommodating.
After 2 very disappointing experiences with finding potential German tutors who subsequently did not turn up to our house (NOT through this website!!!) Anna has restored our faith in the tutoring profession… we only wish she had moved to our area 3 months ago so we could have started the German tuition earlier!… what a piece of luck for us and anybody else in the Warwickshire area who is looking for German tuition, that she has moved here and bought her wonderful talents and brilliant and kind personality to our area!
