Piano Teaching

pianoI have a lifelong love of playing and teaching the pianoforte, having won a scholarship as a Junior Exhibitioner Pianist to the Royal Academy of Music, aged 12.  I have taught pupils who started with me in their 80s and also teach students from age 7 upwards.  I have both a digital and acoustic piano in my home in Sandown or can come, by prior agreement, to teach in your own home if you prefer.

Learning to play an instrument should be fun with varied activities, not just technique, so we choose pieces together which will encourage a student to practise whilst making sure that a structured curriculum in developing their technique is also covered.  Aural, singing and theory are covered as part of the teaching experience.  Developing an all round musician is important.
