I can prepare students for ABRSM examinations ( my students have a 100% pass rate ), music competitions, concerts and auditions.

I believe that music has a great power to enrich our lives and everyone deserves it.
Everyone is different and I adjust my approach to the need of my students. In the end, it is always about the enjoyment and inspiration which comes from music.
I teach classical piano and music theory at all levels. During piano lessons, I work with a student on the development of piano technique and musicianship as well as on his/her aural skills, harmony, sight-reading, analysis and elements of improvisation. Always depending on the student's needs and their personality.
