I have been teaching classical and jazz piano to all ages and stages for over twenty years. I am particularly interested in helping students learn how to practise more effectively and efficiently. I also perform regularly, especially piano trios and quartets, and as half of a piano duo.
My experience of available teaching materials has lead me to produce No Notes piano music - a resource for absolute beginners which enables even young children to have fun learning valuable foundation keyboard skills including:
- having a practical familiarity with the layout of a keyboard;
- learning to play using all fingers and thumbs;
- reading music;
- playing with a beat;
- playing musically.
There are currently two No Notes books - Children's Songs and Blues Primer. Please see the website for more details - www.NoNotes.co.uk.
