Pauline offers a FREE first / introductory lesson!
I have Grade 8 piano (Associated Board) and have been playing since 1971. I play a wide range of repertoire from all musical eras. I teach in person and online via Zoom or Skype; I have been teaching since 2012 and have 100% pass rate in ABRSM examinations.
I cover music theory, as an optional extra, as well as practical playing. My pupils have had consistently pleasing ABRSM examination results - many of them have passed with distinction. I take the trouble to play the ABRSM pieces myself and to help my students to play expressively. [I can supply more references from other pupils upon request.]
I treat each student as an individual and tune into their specific needs and adapt my teaching style appropriately. I teach from beginner to advanced level; to include those that want to take up the piano again after a break. Some students like to work on music theory and take examinations and others like to play for pleasure. I include a broad range of repertoire and let students bring music that they wish to learn but I offer plenty of guidance on 'pleasure' piece choices (for example, I provide Christmas carols and music for well known Christmas songs during December). I draw from my many years of enjoyment of the instrument. If the pupil enjoys playing, he/she will go far… either by having a wonderful hobby 'for life' … or by progressing on to more serious study within the field of music. My approach is very thorough - I teach in a methodical way and keep the lessons enjoyable. I pay attention to detail. I always ensure that all information that I have passed on to my pupils is clearly understood; giving a solid foundation of knowledge. I undertake Continuous Professional Development. I teach in person and on an online basis using skype, WhatsApp or zoom. Online lessons are proving to be very successful! Here is a recent testimonial "I am really enjoying virtual piano lessons. I have learnt a lot. The lessons have been structured well and it was almost like I was there!" (Megan)
