Online lessons available! I am a friendly, down-to-earth piano teacher with many years experience teaching piano to children and adults, based in Walton-on-Thames. I have played piano for over 20 years, starting when I was about 7 - I completed classical ABRSM Grades before moving on to teach myself a broader selection of music styles at age 16. I play in a professional function band called Blackbird as the pianist and lead vocalist, performing at events and weddings across the country. I have a First Class BA Open University degree.
I am Enhanced DBS checked and fully trained in Safeguarding and Child Protection.
One-to-one piano tutoring - ABRSM classical grades as well as contemporary and casual piano
One-to-one maths & English tutoring KS2-GCSE
Running education sessions and workshops for school groups at museums and historic sites
I am passionate about music and performing - piano is a lifelong skill and I can never thank my own parents enough for pushing me to learn as I was growing up (despite my reluctance to practise… )!
I mainly teach primary and secondary-school children (age 7-17), as well as some adults, from beginner to intermediate levels. I tailor my lessons around my students depending on what style of piano they would like to learn - we can follow a more formal approach, focusing on classical grades, or I am happy to teach more relaxed styles of playing through chords, scales and improvisation techniques that can be applied to most contemporary songs.
I fully empathise with the challenges and difficulties that are encountered when faced with learning an instrument, but my enthusiastic, patient and driven approach helps my students pick up the skills required to love playing in no time.
I am happy to travel to you, and typically teach from 3pm-8pm on weekdays - contact me for availability. My lessons are 50 minutes for £30, but I am happy to do shorter or longer lessons if preferred.
