I am a pianist and conductor, who's been teaching piano, music theory, composicion, musicianship and singing in London, Guildford and surrounding areas. I graduated from Goldsmiths University BMus (Music) and I am currently completing MA in Music Teaching from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. My passion and dedication to music helped many of my students to start their musical journey. I enjoy teaching everyone, no matter what their age is, but most of all, I enjoy when my students achieve great results! In case I cannot accommodate you, I would gladly recommend you to other teachers whom I am collaborating with.
Due to a heavy load of students at the private music school and my personal students, at some point I was teaching around 60 students a week and over many years of teaching I managed to make hundreds of exam entries. I'm currently tutoring beginners to Grade 8, also teaching adults or those who just want to develop their musical skills. My recent Grade 5 theory students scored 98 and 97 out of a hundred, but it is all due to their hard work!
Since every student is different, I tend to apply various teaching techniques in my lessons. I do believe that going for performance exams motivates some students extrinsically, but I also believe that music should always come first. For that reason I always try teaching beyond the exam curriculum: music history, harmony, singing and sight-singing which helps in later years, sight-reading, performance, technique and expression. The lessons are usually tailored to everyone's needs and abilities.

I am delighted I chose you as my tutor. You are reliable, conscientious, and patient, and, thanks to your guidance and encouragement, my long - held wish to learn to play the piano is finally becoming a reality. Thank you so much!
I do understand the importance of the first lesson, but we all should understand that life happens sometimes and we should understand others around us. Having to teach 60+ students every week it might go out of control on rare occasions. On the other hand, I always understand if a parent cancels a lesson just a day before because of a family emergency or other reasons.
Once again, I just wanted to explain the situation and I have offered several solutions after the cancellation, unfortunately, it was refused without a consideration.
Had never played the piano before, I am very pleased with my progress and enjoying every lesson!
