Hello, my name is Lynda.
Since my retirement from the NHS as a Nurse Practitioner, I have finally had the time to develop my passion for piano teaching. I believe that learning the piano should first and foremost be a fun experience for all ages and abilities. This in turn leads to rewarding excellent progress.
I pride myself in having an awareness of both established and new techniques, resources and programmes of teaching. These enable me to fine tune and personalise my teaching to each student's individual needs.
I teach children from five years old to adults, my particular interest is in teaching from Beginners up to Grade 4.
Whilst I am accustomed to working from home, recent developments have meant offering online lessons via Zoom. If you have concerns regarding teaching at my home, I am happy to do an individual risk assessment with you and apply Government guidelines to create a safe environment. I have an enhanced DBS Certificate.
I have been playing the piano since I was 4 obtaining Grade 8 piano in 2015. I have been teaching the piano following the successful completion of the Piano Teachers Certificate in 2016. This course is the leading professional development qualification for piano teachers run by the European Teachers Association, of which I remain a member.
I maintain professional development by being a member of the Curious Piano Teachers' Association, which has close to 400 members and delivers weekly teaching tips and ideas with multiple resources and webinars with the UK's leading professional piano teachers.
In order to deliver quality lessons I follow the Piano Teaching Course principle guidelines which include:
To ensure a meaningful musical experience, (a fun, memorable lesson that will be will have music making at the heart of the lesson)
Establish musical concepts, (for example pulse, rhythm, pitch, harmony, dynamics, etc)
Develop pianistic skills, (for example, good posture, independence of hands and fingers, a sense of style and interpretation)
Create a positive atmosphere, (for example a welcoming and safe environment with COVID restrictions in place, planning and teaching well structured lessons, teach effective practising strategies)
