Personal Message
I am an experienced and passionate piano teacher and performer, currently studying a Master of Arts in Jazz Piano performance at the Royal Academy of Music.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach the piano. Whilst I specialize in jazz performance, I am equally comfortable in classical (I studied with classical pianists in my undergraduate degree) and popular music performance, and can teach any of these genres as well as offering a combination.

I also have experience in putting students through examinations, and in teaching music theory and composition. These aspects of my performance and teaching history makes me well suited to teach a broad range of students, from the very beginner level up to advanced.

Master of Arts (Jazz Piano). Royal Academy of Music. 2017-2019

What kind of experience do you have?
I am experienced in teaching both private students and group classes. For the past three years I have been a piano tutor with Play Music, Aria Music, The Music Partnerships, and Inner West Music College, in Sydney, Australia. I have also been teaching piano privately and in holiday programs since 2010. As part of my undergraduate studies at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, I travelled around regional Australia to give workshops and performance demonstrations at various schools, and worked as an intern lecturer at both the Murray Conservatorium in Albury and the Wollongong Conservatorium.
How much do you charge?
I charge £30 per hour.
Where do you teach?
I teach from the studio in my home, however if this is not suitable I am able to travel.
When are you available?
I have a range of availabilities, please enquire for further information.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach all ages, levels and abilities.
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
No - I will be getting one in early 2018.
Do you have a personal message for students?
I am passionate about teaching, and I find it an immensely enjoyable experience to watch a student grow and develop. I like the challenge of finding new ways to help a student solve a problem, and I firmly believe in showing them all the possibilities playing music has to offer, as well as demonstrating to them the incredible fun music can be.
