Personal Description:

Born in Germany, I studied piano with side subject cello in Frankfurt and solo piano in Weimar, before coming to England, where I did a Masters in Music Performance (piano accompaniment) at the Guildhall School, London.
Currently, I study singing with Jessica Cash and I aim to take my FCTL (Performance degree at Master level) within the next couple of years.
I divide my time between work as accompanist, teaching and concerts, mainly as a pianist, but more and more also as a singer. I also have three children.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching the piano and the cello for more than 20 years, singing for about five.
I was also a tutor at the City Lit on their Music Access programme, teaching the Performance Module and, intermittently, leading the choir. Sadly, this programme was closed last year, due to financial cuts.
For singers and instrumentalists, amateur or professional, I also offer coaching and/or accompaniment for exams of all kinds.

Tutoring Approach:

Most of my teaching is one-to-one, except for a small singing/coaching class which I run privately.
I aim to develop an approach unique to the student. I offer a range of styles,taking into account type of music the student prefers.
Each of my lessons will cover some technique and repertoire, where my students also find out about efficient, time-saving ways to practice. I include theory, improvisation and composition, depending on needs and interest.
I am happy to prepare students for exams, though I do not press pupils to take them, if they do not wish to do so. I run termly small concerts, mostly at my home, as an opportunity for students to perform. I encourage everyone to take part, but it is not compulsory.
