I am DBS checked (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) and underwent a Child Protection course.
How much do you charge?
Trial lesson will be free of charge if I come to your place and thereafter you start the course by seven days, completely free if you come to my place.

The following fees apply if you want me to come to your place:
A) 72£ half an hour
B) 145£ one hour
C) 178£ one hour and a half
D) 194£ two hours
E) 218£ two hours and a half
F) 240£ three hours

For each student of the same family simply sum up the price of any single fee.

The following fees apply if you prefer to come to my place instead:
G) 32£ half an hour or up to one hour (ONLY for each of two or more siblings, otherwise for just one child the fee is H) H) 38£ half an hour or up to one hour I) 56£ one hour and a half J) 75£ two hours.

K) If you prefer to have lesson every 2 weeks, just add 8£ to the choosen fee. If you opt respectively for 2 or 4 hours lesson, such extra won’t be applied.
L) If you don’t want to commit for a fixed number of lessons per month, we can still go on. Again, simply add 5£ to the fee you have choosen provided you commit for the ordinary number of lessons per term (see the How many lessons should I do every year? section).
M) Should you prefer not to have a fixed number of lessons per term, I will propose a package of a certain number of lessons for an extra per lesson I have to decide (depending on how many lessons you want to do), and in that case the How many lessons should I do every year? section will be ignored.

All travel expenses are included.
Where do you teach?
I travel mainly in West and Central London.

I will teach at your home or at my place, at your choice.
But if you don't have a piano yet, don't worry, you can come to my flat, otherwise you can rent a piano starting from 20£/month.
This rent will be deducted from the purchase of that instrument if you decide to go on with your piano lessons.
Ask me for more information.

(You can also decide to take a second hand piano for free... Yes! Just have a look on Gumtree, there are so many people getting rid of old pianos. Some of them are working well enough.)
