Personal Description:

(COVID19 update: Lessons now being taken very successfully ONLINE during lockdown and periods of Social Distancing.)
My name is Karen **Removed By Admin** and I teach piano/keyboard from my home (see update) near Filey using both my baby-grand piano and full-size Clavinova CVP605 keyboard.
As well as teaching, I also have had over 30 years experience singing and playing in local bands. Currently I sing, play, compose and arrange for my all-female band RAVEN.
I am a Mum, with two grown up sons and a dog,
I teach all ages… it is never too late to learn, so if you are an adult, perhaps retired and looking for a new hobby, then I could be just the person you need. Get in touch!

Tutoring Experience:

I have over 35 years' teaching experience, both as a Primary school teacher and music teacher.
I have a B.Ed teaching qualification, Grade 8 piano, and Grade 8 Theory (ABRSM) qualifications.

Tutoring Approach:

I teach the traditional Classical piano method but also teach jazz piano and pop keyboard. I like to incorporate chord work, composition and free-style into my teaching. I encourage my pupils to be creative and go with whichever style of learning that best suits them.
I also incorporate music theory into the lessons so my pupils are learning the theoretical side of music along with the practical.
If my students wish to take formal exams and achieve their own music qualifications, I have many years experience of entering pupils for the ABRSM examinations with a very high success rate. I have also entered pupils for Trinity exams if preferred.
