Thank you for reading! Diolch am ddarllen!
Which subject(s) do you teach?
With regards to piano, I reached my grade 8 standard and absolutely hated my lessons when I was younger but am thrilled that I stuck them through, and now love teaching in a completely different way to how my teacher taught me!
I am a keen believer that learning through enjoyment and fun is the best way, but I also believe that doing grades with a prestigious board such as ABRSM is the best way of keeping focus and direction within the learning. I can teach from that first finger on the keyboard through to grade 6.

With regards to singing, I also reached my grade 8 and have a degree in Musical Theatre and Professional Stage Practice. I do not believe doing grades is the best way to learn singing but I am willing to put students through them if they wish. I strongly believe a good singer that will work in the future should have the ability to read music and this is incorporated throughout my teaching. Due to being educated chorally as a member of the National Choir of Wales and then also gaining a degree in Musical Theatre, this has given me an extensive repertoire and I can teach different styles of singing with confidence and passion. I believe my main strength as a singing teacher is my ability to identify with your needs as a singer and create a lesson structure and style accordingly.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I have been teaching piano since I was 17 and have continued to do so since then, gaining 13 year experience. I absolutely love teaching and will always teach music.
What kind of experience do you have?
I have been living in London for the last 4 years and have taught both Piano and Singing to children as young as three and adults ranging from professional Musical Theatre singers to complete beginner pianists. I started my own piano school in Canada Water where I now have two wonderful teachers teaching three days a week.
The good news is, I am thrilled to be back in Cardiff, and can't wait to start teaching all of you!
Professionally I also work as a singer in an acapella trio with my sisters called 'Sorela', and work as a presenter on Jonathan Davies' S4C show Jonathan.
How much do you charge?
My rate is a reasonable £30 and hour or £15 for half an hour.
Please note that all lessons will be paid for on the first lesson of every month. My cancellation policy states that cancellations have to be done at least a 24 hours before the lesson if the lesson is to be rearranged.
Where do you teach?
I will teach from my lovely home in Grangetown.
When are you available?
As I'm brand new to Cardiff I have ALL the slots available!
I will be teaching every week day between 3:00 - 8:00 so the first to contact will get their desired slot!
Y cyntaf i'r felin....
Which ages and levels do you teach?
I have taught piano and singing to children as young as 3 years old (Londoners are very keen!) and then beginner piano to adults varying from 20s to their 60s!
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
ABRSM for Piano, Singing & Music Theory
LAMDA for Musical Theatre
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Yes.
Do you have a personal message for students?
Due to my education and upbringing, I strongly believe that playing an instrument, singing or reading music is hugely beneficial in numerous ways.
It fosters creativity, improves memory and brainpower, teaches discipline and patience, and is an excellent way to express yourself.
