Information About Christine - Fareham teacher - (14 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Christine:
I qualified as as piano teacher in 2008 which was a chosen second career after being a professional software engineer. I am passionate about music and thoroughly enjoy teaching in particular the challenges and rewards that can be gained from it. I am patient with a strong work ethic and always try to bring out the full potential of every pupil.
I teach a wide range of pupils from young children to teenagers, professionals and retired adults. A small number of my pupils have special educational needs. I teach from home and work in schools, both in the State and Independent sector. This has enabled me to teach effectively a broad range of abilities from varied social backgrounds. I have also worked for a Music Service.
I have successfully entered pupils for ABRSM and Trinity Guildhall exams (up to and including grade 8). I also enter pupils into local Music festivals some of whom have won their categories.
Additionally. I teach Music theory in small groups whilst practical piano lessons are on a one to one basis.
I treat each pupil as an individual and methodically plan all lessons which are tailored to meet their needs and aspirations My main focus is to make lessons enjoyable and engaging and there is no pressure to take exams. I am open minded to all genres of Music and am happy to teach Classical, Jazz and Contemporary Music with the intention of keeping the pupil motivated and inspired.

Her approach to learning musical theory along with pieces that demonstrate it is particularly beneficial, as it provides context and makes the concepts easier to understand.
Christine is a friendly, understanding and knowledgeable teacher and I strongly recommend her.
You are clearly very motivated and have made an excellent start. I have no doubt that you have the potential to play well.
She makes it fun.
Everyone has their own personal goals and I always try and go with that. For me Music should be accessible and enjoyed.
