Tell me about some of your current students.
One of my students James (8 years old), who I teach in Bethnal Green, has recently passed with merit is grade 1 exam and grade 1 theory with only 1 mark deducted. He's currently training to be a chorister so we try to implement singing in his practice. Another student I've been teaching is an adult pupil called Barry, preparing him for his ABRSM piano diploma currently awaiting results.
