Fiona HEDGES - Teacher Profile

About Me

I have a small private practice in West Oxford, teaching after my school teaching has finished - mostly late afternoons&nbsp;and evenings Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.<br /><br />I have 30+ years experience of full-time teaching piano (also cello and classical double bass ) up to Grade&nbsp;8. I also prepare pupils for grade 5 theory in intensive 1:1 courses.&nbsp;&nbsp;<br /><br />With beginners in particular&nbsp;I prefer to&nbsp;use American tutor books for their holistic approach to musical literacy, harmony, scales and technique, and their integrated use of duetting. I aim to develop confident and competant musicians, and so I will not teach in a narrow exam-focussed way.<br /><br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
