Hello! I am an enthusiastic, dedicated teacher and pianist based in East Didsbury. I am currently in my final year at the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM) studying piano performance (BMus) with Dina Parakhina. I have previously studied at the junior department of the Guildhall School of Music in London, Chetham’s School of Music in Manchester and abroad in Italy.
I teach all ages and abilities. I am happy to take on absolute beginners and very young children! I am also able to prepare students for graded examinations if required. Patience, commitment and a real passion for music are qualities I look for in a piano teacher and I strive to be that piano teacher for my students.
I mainly teach from my home in East Didsbury where I have a Kawai acoustic upright piano. Unfortunately I am unable to travel outside the Didsbury/Withington area to teach.
At the RNCM I am also undertaking a specialist teacher-training course run by the former deputy head of keyboard and expert pedagogue, Helen Krizos. Through this course I have had the opportunity to teach piano at a primary school in Levenshulme and will continue teaching on the piano teaching scheme at the RNCM this year. Prior to this, I have also taught at various levels and with different age groups privately.
My approach to teaching is one that is open-minded and varied. I think it is crucial for those learning the piano to have a well-rounded knowledge of music and its many components. I believe that piano playing without music is not worth listening to. Hence why in my lessons I hope to incorporate music appreciation, theory, history, culture, as well as solid foundations in piano technique. I also encourage regular performances to help my students overcome stage fright and build their confidence as a performer.
From having so many teachers (6 in total!), I can draw on my experience of different piano teaching methods to my student’s advantage. As a teacher, it is important to be able to see the way each student learns and what methods best suit their learning. This allows the student to progress quickly and without wasting any time. By having such an approach I hope to teach my students how to learn according to their strengths and solve problems independently.
