Tell me about some of your current students.
My current students range from 4-13 in age. In lessons we cover all areas of standard piano technique, reading notation, listening skills, general musicianship and having fun! Students and parents are consulted which paths of learning are suitable for them. This can entail a more traditional path of working with graded syllabuses, a more holistic approach to music education or a mixture of both!
Do you have a personal message for students?
Hello prospective student! I'm so glad to hear you're learning a musical instrument or considering beginning one. Teaching children and adults of all ages is something that I thoroughly enjoy - I hope we can continue your journey learning music together!
