Information About Michael - Canterbury teacher - (2 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Michael:
I am a piano and keyboard teacher.
I was born in Edinburgh where I was educated at Scotus Academy and then gained a degree from Edinburgh University. I started learning the piano when I was ten under a private tutor, passing through the grades to Grade 8. I have continued playing throughout most of my adult life. I moved to Kent in 1980.
I have taught piano and keyboard for over twenty years, including a number of years as a partner of Intermezzo Music School in Canterbury. In addition to the practical side of instruction, I prepare students, if required, for the Grade examinations and GCSE. I also teach during the school holidays.
I have dealt with all ages, abilities and levels which, of course, necessitates different approaches but the emphasis has always been on enjoyment and playing pieces right from the start. As students progress, they move on to acquiring the polished techniques that improve their performance and enhance their enjoyment. Special courses are used for beginners and techniques are used to learn notation quickly and achieve a relaxed playing style. Pieces cover a wide repertoire - classical, jazz and popular - so the student is introduced to a variety of musical genres. With dedication and practice a high level of competence can be achieved.
