Personal Description:

Hello. My name is Susan. I am a young 50 something piano teacher with extensive experience of teaching adults and children of all abilities. I have a degree in French from Lancaster University. My love of languages and music led me to a career as a professional music teacher/organist in Norway. On returning to this country after the birth of my son, I devoted my time to teaching piano as a private tutor as well as working as a Choirmaster and Organist.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught piano and organ for more than 20 years from beginner to advanced level. My qualifications include Piano Grade 8 and Organ Grade 8 (Distinction) and a CTABRSM diploma.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to keep a reasonably structured approach through the use of tutor books for beginners. Once the pupil is ready, I suggest taking a Prep Test before moving on to Grade Examinations. Pupils are free to choose either ABRSM or Trinity for examinations. Some pupils prefer not to take exams, which is also fine. Pupils are encouraged to practise scales and arpeggios every day and to play them at the lesson each week. Set pieces are taught hands separately, then hands together. In between grades, pupils are encouraged to expand their repertoire. If possible, pieces are learnt from memory. The more able pupils are encouraged to enter for Music Festivals and Competitions. Aural and Sight reading are taught on a regular basis.
