Experienced and dedicated tutor for piano and music theory

I have achieved a distinction in grade 8 piano, distinction in grade 7 theory, and I am currently working towards a performance diploma (dipABRSM) and a teaching diploma (dipABRSM in instrumental teaching) whilst tutoring piano and music theory full-time. I started teaching five years ago, specialising in classical piano, and I have also taught music of a variety of other styles. I am proficient in leading students through ABRSM exams to grade 8.

I also teach music theory as I believe that the knowledge of how music is put together really enhances a musician. Although I feed elements of theory into the piano lessons, having separate theory sessions is particularly beneficial for those who are working towards graded exams. I have also taught theory with a more vocational approach that is geared towards music producers and song writers, covering skills such as: how to notate pitch and rhythm, harmonise melodies using chords, and transposing these into other keys.

I am naturally very patient, and thoroughly enjoy teaching. Each lesson will be tailored to the student's needs with a systematic approach to ensure that they achieve their goals - whether working towards exams or simply learning for fun!
