I am happy to prepare my students for ABRSM examinations (100% distinction rate), competitions and concerts.
My aim is to make lessons inspiring and motivative. Everyone is different and I adjust my approach to the need of my students. I also like to talk about body mapping/ human anatomy etc. to improve their techniques and postures.
I work on development of piano technique and musicianship as well as aural skills, harmony, sight-reading, theory and analysis. Always depending on needs and wish of the student.
