Music has always played an important part of my life - I grew up in mid Wales where everyone played an instrument. I have been playing the piano since I was 6 years old and passed Grade 8 with merit when I was 15. I took an AS level in Music (performing) in 1992 and regularly took part in Eisteddfodau events and Urdd (Welsh youth society). I also played the 'cello in my local Youth Orchestra. My degree is in Mathematics (which goes hand in hand with music), which I followed with a Postgraduate Certificate in Education at the University of Cambridge. I am local to Shrewsbury and mum to lively 5 and 2 year old boys.
I have tutored a variety of piano students since I was 17 years old. Since 2004 I have been working as a Mathematics teacher at a large secondary school in Telford, where I currently work part-time tutoring students who are part of the Pupil Premium Grant. Between 2007-9 I worked as a Year 6 teacher at a Junior school. One of my favourite lessons was music and my class regularly put on performances as part of their assemblies. I also ran the school choir and accompanied the school on the local church pipe organ when we had services there.
Everyone is different! I'm keen to allow children (and adults) aged 6 upwards the opportunities to experience all sorts of music. Some students might be keen to do exams in quick succession. Others might prefer to take a bit of time to explore what they enjoy. Whether it be Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Debussy or Rachmaninov (to name a few), there are arrangements of all sorts of famous pieces that are approachable from a fairly early stage in learning the piano.
