Personal Description:

I'm Sarah and I'm married with two older teenage/ young adult daughters. I've loved music my whole life and I play the piano, electronic keyboard, recorders, harp, violin and I sing. My elder daughter sings professionally and my youngest is an accomplished pianist with a few pupils of her own, so there is always music in our family! I was a primary school teacher for a good few years and head of music in a middle school, but had my arm twisted to teach a few pupils piano. That was nearly 25 years ago and I've never looked back! I absolutely love what I do and I hope that over the years I've given many people a musical ability and live that will last them a lifetime.

Tutoring Experience:

I taught in school with music responsibility for many years, running it alongside piano tuition for a long time, I've taught in primary, infant and middle schools as a class teacher with music responsibility and also as a keyboard teacher in secondary school.
I've been running my own music teaching business from home for nearly 25 years now. In that time I've taught all grades and ages, from 4 years old through to people in their 80s. It's certainly never too late! I've had more people through exams than I can remember, including many Grade 8s in piano, keyboard and music theory, and a few students successfully achieve their first profession diplomas and go on to further tuition at either university or specialist music schools. I've also had many people learn just for the sheer fun and enjoyment of it. I hope that everyone goes away with a skill that will last them a lifetime. I constantly study and keep current, take professional lessons myself, and keep learning so I never get stale.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to keep current and on trend, something which both my daughters and young pupils help me with. I never want to seem like an old, stuffy, scary music teacher! However, I always strive to push pupils to achieve the very best they can. My pupils are frequently amongst the best pianists in the school when they go to secondary, and frequently stay with me to achieve the highest grades. My pupils mainly take ABRSM exams, but I'm always open to other exam boards, and indeed have a good handful of pupils who never want to take exams but would rather work on the latest chart or film song. My singers mainly work to the LCM music theatre syllabus which is great fun, but I never neglect technique. I am one of few teachers who teach music theory right up to Grade 8 and often run theory groups at a very reasonable cost.
