With over 20 years teaching experience in piano and woodwind, I specialise in teaching high quality one to one and group tuition lessons, both in school and privately.
I enter children for ABRSM, Trinity and LCM graded exams, and pre-grade 1 ABRSM music medals for children who have group tuition.
Currently there are no spaces for new pupils, and I’m not keeping an open waiting list.
Lesson costs from Sept 2021
20 mins: £11
30 mins: £16
45 mins: £24
60 mins: £32
All lessons are payable in advance, half termly by electronic transfer.
If your child wishes to stop lessons I require 6 weeks notice (half a term) so I can re-allocate the lesson space to somebody on the waiting list. Please be courteous and considerate with this notice period.
Accompaniment for a graded exam is free for woodwind students, and for piano students I provide a free run through at the exam centre before you go in when I can, or swap your weekly lesson so it’s in the day or 2 before your exam.
If you have any questions about ABRSM exams this document is really useful, it’s called ‘These music exams’ and is written by the chief examiner.
All students are free to email me any time during the week with practice questions, and should expect a reply within 24 hours.
I also will happily record short demo videos / mp3 files. If you have a voice recorder, iPad or phone with mic, you are encouraged to bring them to your lessons so you can record parts for practicing.
Fees for choral or instrumental conducting depend on group size, preparation time and distance for travel. Please get in touch for further information or a quote.
