Sue LAKER - Teacher Profile

About Me
Hi,I am a private piano teacher, teaching in 2 teaching practices, in Chandler's Ford and Lordswood, Southampton. I also teach at the Gregg School, Townhill Park.I run theory courses for those preparing for Grade 5 theory (ABRSM). These sessions combine theory with making music, and developing aural skills, enabling pupils to put the theory into real context in their playing and enjoyment of music.For those who want to do formal exams, I use the ABRSM and Trinity Guildhall, depending on pupils' strengths and preferences. Many of my pupils decide not to do exams, and this is fine too. Enjoying making music is the important thing, and we all do that together, whatever structure this may take. I run two informal pupils' concerts every year, which are popular with pupils and families alike. The aim of these is to give pupils a chance to perform the pieces they have been working on to others in a very informal setting.For those who like to perform in a more formal way, there is the option to enter the Southampton and Winchester music Festivals.I am available to accompany instrumental exams, and to help with aural test preparation.
