Which subject(s) do you teach?
Piano
Tell me about your qualifications.
I hold a Diploma in Piano Performance from the London College of Music and the Certificate of Teaching from the European Piano Teachers' Association (EPTA-UK). I also hold a BA Hons in English and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education.
What kind of experience do you have?
I have a wide range of students in terms of age and ability. My youngest pupil is 3 years old and I have a number of early-years students (3 and 4 years). I also teach adult beginners and returners and also currently a number of other students between the ages of 5 and 15. I really enjoy the variety of teaching such a wide age range and am delighted to welcome anyone to my practice!
How much do you charge?
£22.50 per 30 minutes and £45 per hour - these rates are valid until August 2019.
Where do you teach?
I teach at my home in Teddington, SW London. This is very easily accessible from Central London (30 minutes from Waterloo) and surrounding areas such as Richmond, Twickenham, New Malden, Kingston, the Hamptons, Surbiton, Norbiton etc.
When are you available?
Weekdays. I do not restrict myself to term times although understand that some families will not want lessons during the school holidays.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
I have a particular interest in early years and adult beginners and returners - but delighted to welcome anyone in between!. I will take children as young as 3 as the Dogs and Birds approach is suitable for this age. My youngest pupil is 3.

I will take any age student up to approx Grade 8 level.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
I am happy to prepare students for either ABRSM or Trinity exams.
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Yes.
Do you belong to any professional organisations?
European Piano Teachers' Association.
Where and with whom did you train?
As a young student, I studied with Jeremy Dibble who is now Professor of Music at Durham University.
I currently study with Graham Fitch, a renowned prize-winning pianist and teacher.
Do you have a personal message for students?
Early years - I believe that starting music at a young age is, like learning a language, the best time to learn. Developing a love for music is something that will be with the child for life – if taught effectively from the beginning. Whether or not they use music in any type of career, they will always have a very special past-time that will be with them throughout the highs and lows of their lives.

Adults - I have a particular interest in how playing the piano can aid in stress relief and believe that starting the piano as an adult - or returning to it after many years - is a wonderful way to cope with the pressures of modern life.
