Personal Description:

I am a fully qualified piano teacher with 24 years of experience from Malta. I teach all levels and ages from children to adults. I prepare students for practical as well as theory exams of the ABRSM and diplomas of the LCM and ABRSM.
I have recently moved to the UK due to family circumstances. While in Malta I regularly organised pupils' concerts at different venues and encouraged students to participate in international festivals, master classes and competitions. I myself have been participating in numerous master classes both as an active participant and as a teacher.

Tutoring Experience:

I've had a very good number of successful graduate students throughout my 24 years' of teaching in Malta who most of them are now teaching independently. I prepared students for Dip ABRSM and LRSM of the ABRSM as well as ALCM, LLCM and FLCM of the LCM.
I have been teaching my own daughter since the age of 5. She has passed all the ABRSM grades with the highest distinction marks and has obtained 5 diplomas by age 13. She is currently studying at Wells Cathedral School in Somerset as a Specialist Pianist with a scholarship.
Presently I have two recommendations confirming my teaching profession as a result of a number of highly successful candidates who sat for examinations up to diploma level with the relative boards.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a calm and patient person and I believe that delivering my passion of music to my students is very essential. I do this by giving them praise as well as correcting them. I tell them when they are making progress and encourage them. That way, students appreciate their success and build more confidence for further improvement. I do care about each and every student and also try to find ways to make a connection with every one of them. I believe that trust is very important in a teacher-student relationship.
I encourage experimentation and exploration. It is very exciting when they try their best to get to know various sounds created by themselves. I also encourage them to take part in concerts and assemblies to boost their confidence and deal with stage fright from a very young age. Various techniques such as games, competitions, rewards or inspirational stories help to motivate and inspire students to practice. I just love seeing students interested in music and flourish.
