Whether you're an absolute beginner, starting from scratch, an advanced player preparing for exams, or simply just wanting to play and learn for the love of it!
I teach people of all ages (5 - 100), any style (Classical, Jazz or Pop), and all levels (beginners to an advanced diploma level). I have over 14 years of experience, teaching the piano, music theory and music technology in London, Ascot and Saltdean, and I have also had a 100% pass rate with all my students' ABRSM exams so far!
I teach from my music studio at home in Mount Drive, Saltdean. Parking is available and we're just a short walk from the bus stop (Bus 27, which leaves from Brighton Station via Kemp Town, the Brighton Marina, and Rottingdean).
Lesson Fees 2017 / 2018
- 30 minute lesson (ages 5 - 9 only): £25.00
- 60 minute lesson: £35.00
Lessons are taught on my Yamaha C3 acoustic grand piano, but for those of you that have digital pianos, I can also teach using various keyboards. I place special emphasis on physical relaxation while playing (maximum results for minimum physical effort/strain), bringing music theory, harmony, ear-training, improvisation, music technology and general musical knowledge into each lesson. There are also facilities for students to make basic audio and video recordings.
PLEASE NOTE: I usually give lessons on a weekly basis, and I have a 48hrs' notice cancellation policy. You will also need your own instrument to practise on at home - this is essential for your progress!
I have been DBS-checked, and after an initial consultation lesson, I always set up a basic contract with my student or their parents, outlining my terms and conditions.
