I am a piano teacher in Solihull & Birmingham and 75% of my pupils are adults. I teach children from the age of 4.
I rarely enter pupils for exams and work towards confidence which includes graded music, pop music, sight reading skills, scales and listening skills.
I ensure all my pupils are well rounded confident musicians and NOT exam machines!
I teach theory alongside playing and take pupils straight to grade 5 theory rather than doing all the lower grades.
Graded exams are important but I do believe less is more
