Personal Message
I am a concert pianist and composer and enjoy teaching alongside my music career. I have studied and worked with many great professors from all over the world and I know how important a great teacher is.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach piano as well as music theory and analysis. I particularly enjoy working with those students who aim to play piano professionally. However, whatever your goals are, we can work together to achieve them.
Tell me about your qualifications.
LRAM Licentiate of Royal Academy of Music (professional teaching diploma) with 5+ years of broad teaching experience. Royal Academy of Music: Master of Arts with Distinction, Bachelor of Music with Distinction First Class Honours, Hodgson Piano Fellow.
What kind of experience do you have?
I am a piano teacher at the Trinity Music Academy and have also been teaching privately for over 5 years, working with beginners as well as with professional pianists and chamber groups during my Fellowship at the Royal Academy of Music. I have also been successfully preparing pupils and students for ABRSM piano exams, including theory exams for Grade 5 onwards.
How much do you charge?
The prices shown above are for an hour-long lesson. I also offer 45-minute lessons for children. Trial lessons are available at full price.
Where do you teach?
I teach in my local area or at my home.
When are you available?
Weekdays. Time slots are subject to availability.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
All levels - from beginner to advanced. From 5 year old pupils to students of all ages.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
I prepare pupils for ABRSM exams as well as for music theory school exams and various auditions.
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Yes. I also hold a certificate of completing the NSPCC course for child protection.
Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
Online tutoring is an option for those having Skype and good quality instrument (for piano lessons). It is possible to have only a keyboard or a synthesiser for theory lessons. Quality Skype allows me to listen to a student's playing and show examples and corrections, as well as examples for theory and even dictations playing. However, none of that is advised for beginners.
Do you belong to any professional organisations?
After winning the Bach Prize from The Worshipful Company of Musicians, I became a member of this organisation. I am also a member of the PRS and MCPS Music and Composing License Organisations.
Where and with whom did you train?
I studied with a professor Hamish Milne at the Royal Academy of Music and participated in masterclasses with many prominent musicians including Richard Goode, Lilia Zilberstein, Pierre-Laurent Aimard, Boris Petrushansky and Boris Berman.
