Music is a valuable skill for life which not only brings joy to you and those around you but also encourages us to think in new and varied ways. It gives me great pleasure to be able to pass on the joy of music to others.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach piano from beginners to grade 5 level, music theory following the ABRSM syllabus, GCSE music (please specify which syllabus is being used) and beginner composition.
Piano lessons will include theory and aural skills. I will tailor all lessons to the students' musical preference so if there is a specific area you want to focus on or a particular style of music you enjoy/want to learn, do not hesitate to ask!
Tell me about your qualifications.
I have a Bachelor of Music degree - first class honours in Musical Composition - and grade 8 piano.
What kind of experience do you have?
I have taught for over five years and have a 100% exam pass rate.

Privately I charge £30.00 per hour, £16.00 per half hour. I offer a half an hour trial lesson for all new customers and can offer flexible durations.
Where do you teach?
During the week I teach at students' homes. I am based in St Albans and teach in the surrounding areas such as Chiswell Green, How Wood and Park Street. I am happy to travel to these and other nearby areas.
