Information About Deborah - Chelmsford teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Deborah:
I have a musical background and several members of my family have had musical careers. I also kept up my musical interest whilst raising a family.
I have lived in Chelmsford, Essex since 1990 and jobs have included, teaching swimming to children and adults at schools and various leisure centres. Other jobs included mental health nursing. I completed a B.A. Honours degree in modern languages.
I have taught friends’ children ABRSM grades I and 2 who passed these grades with ‘Merit’ I am now able to offer lessons up to grade 3 ABRSM. I also incorporate musical theory and aural training within my lessons. Whilst I do enjoy preparing students for ABRSM piano examinations, I also enjoy helping those who do not wish to sit exams.
In the past I have taught my daughter to read music up to an advanced level, although she did not wish to take any formal examinations. She also composed simple melodies.
I have played at church festivals and for various pre-school groups.
Qualifications include: ABRSM piano grades 3, 5 and grade 6. ABRSM grade 5 music theory. At present I am working on ABRSM grade 7 and anticipate studying beyond this level
I believe that piano lessons should be interesting and fun. Whilst I believe that sight reading music is an extremely useful and desirable skill to learn, I also think that using one’s ear to explore the keyboard/piano away from the score sheet is an experience that should not be overlooked… Fees Children, £10.00 for 30-minute sessions starting September 2020.
