Gail offers a FREE first / introductory lesson!
I am an accomplished pianist with an eagerness for igniting and growing a passion for playing in others. I started playing the piano when I was a young child and have loved playing ever since.
I am very enthusiastic about teaching the piano and ensure lessons are fun, engaging and full of music making.
Whatever genre of music you wish to learn, from classical to pop; whether you want to simply play for your own pleasure or progress through examinations, I will tailor lessons to individual desires and goals helping each pupil to achieve their best results.
Lessons are normally conducted at my home but I am willing to travel (locally) to provide lessons at your own home at a slightly increased rate.
Anyone wishing to take lessons will require their own piano or keyboard for practice.
Both adults and children welcome.
I teach both children and adults, from beginner to intermediate level.
I have a relaxed and very patient approach to teaching piano. Nuturing a pupil’s love for music and creativity is just as important as teaching the technical aspects of playing. Whilst I enjoy teaching students to read notation and will encourage a solid understanding of music theory from the outset, it’s important that lessons are fun and interesting. I tailor lessons to each individual student depending on their interests, level of ability and pace of learning.

After wanting to learn for a long time I decided to give it a shot at the age of 21 and I feel very happy with my progress.
Gail’s teaching style is very much tailored to what you want to learn and get out of the piano. She is thorough and explains everything extremely well. I’m enjoying learning classical pieces but I know she teaches her students a variety of genres from pop to rock.
The lessons are fun and we get a lot done in the time. Gail also leaves me with lots to do at home which has been a huge part of my progress. Knowing what to do when I’m away from the lessons and never feeling lost because I know she’s only a message away.
Every lesson is well prepared, if I’ve sent a song, she’s already written notes on the sheet for me beforehand which is amazing and has been a huge help.
I always feel encouraged and inspired after each lesson, wanting to get home and practice!
I’ve loved learning the piano with Gail and would recommend her to anyone looking to read music, and play beautifully.
On top of her teaching skills, she's always encouraging, very professional and thankfully has the patience of a saint!
