Dorian's Experience

In my 15 years of teaching, I have found the sheer essence of witnessing the progress and success of my students to be the most rewarding experience.

Music is core to my being and my passion for playing music began early. My mother was a world-class pianist; she was performing recitals whilst pregnant with me and became my first teacher for a number of years subsequent.

My pupils have varied from many different backgrounds and ages: some children, some adults, and on a few occasions I tutored both parents and their children. 

Repertoire and Exams 

I have tutored ABRSM exam preparation for the last 15 years. I often work with students on developing natural, relaxed posture and hand positions. I also strive to motivate and encourage the student to deliver the best to their ability. 

For long term results and achievement of the desired outcome, be it an ABRSM exam or just playing for personal pleasure, I think that every student must first and foremost feel a genuine desire and enthusiasm for learning and possess an understanding of the effort required.

I often suggest that students should expand their repertoire by simply listening to more classical or contemporary music as well as popular songs if they prefer. I always motivate students to choose whatever they want to learn and play, as the feeling of joy and satisfaction of learning a song you like is essential to overall development.
