Personal Description:

Hi, I'm Carl, a full-time piano teacher based in Middleton. Up to the age of 50, I worked as Head of Music in various school music departments before deciding to focus solely on piano teaching.

I am married to the lovely Isabel and have three grown-up children.

Tutoring Experience:

I obtained qualified teacher status in 1991 and worked in mainstream secondary education for 23 years, for the most part as a Head of Music. I was a Standards Verifier (external moderator) for Edexcel's level 2 and 3 BTEC Music and Music Technology courses from 2009 until 2014. Additionally I have taught piano privately to both children and adults since 1986. In 2015 I left the state education system in order to focus on private piano teaching.

I have experience of teaching students of all ages and can adapt my teaching style accordingly. The youngest student I have taught was a 4 year old and the oldest 72!

Tutoring Approach:

As a very experienced teacher, my lessons are very much geared to the individual. With younger students, the focus is always on purposeful fun with music games and singing used to reinforce piano skills. With older students, it is about building a personalised programme of learning which will both challenge and entertain. I prepare students for exams with the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music if they so wish.

Please note that most of my lessons are thirty minute sessions for which I charge £15. These can be extended to 45 minute sessions to encompass more theory for £20.
