Information About Gabrielle - Rossendale teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Gabrielle:
My name is Gabby. I hold the ARSM (ABRSM performance diploma above grade 8). I studied piano in my music degree at Keele university, where I gained a 2.1 honours degree. I sometimes perform publicly as a pianist for special occasions.
I live in Haslingden, Rossendale. Currently, I can be very flexible about lesson times / days. I have been teaching the piano for some years. I have taught children as young as 2 or 3, for whom I have a toddler musical introduction program. I teach all ages of children and teenagers, as well as adults of different ages and as old as 90. I teach half hour lessons for £10, 45 minutes for £15, or a full hour for £20. (Higher grades are charged at £25 per hour). Within this price, students receive piano worksheets to take home, as well as biscuits and drinks (if desired). Young children should begin with half an hour. People studying grades are required to book 45 minute or 1 hour lessons.
I have my own methods for delivering teaching and I use a lot of handouts and compositions of my own, alongside tried and trusted methods. My students gain excellent exam grades and quickly develop a fervour for music and an excellent technique.
I view the piano as being something for everybody who wants to learn. Some of my students have extra requirements such as autism, arthritis, ADHD, visual impairment and others. Despite this, everybody I have taught has made great progress. I believe this is partly because I encourage people and I never put barriers in anybody's way. I centre my teaching around the person, which I believe is key. Most importantly, I offer people a lot of choice about what pieces / styles to play in and I always listen to my students, both the children and the adults.
