Karen Ward

5 star(s) from 1 votes

Since graduating from Birmingham Conservatoire (formerly Birmingham School of Music) Karen has built up over 20 years experience of teaching piano to youngsters and adults alike (currently 6 - 70 years of age) - from first principles through to advanced level. Many of her students have gone on to study and work in music professionally.

Karen teaches on a Bechstein piano - widely regarded as the best in the industry and a particular feature of her teaching is the encouraging, friendly and fun atmosphere of her sessions. She teaches throughout the day and in the evening too. Very young students usually commence with 20 minute sessions which then extend as their ability and attention span increases. Karen always offers new students a free 'taster' lesson and to help them transition into studies.

Karen teaches piano from grade 1 to grade 8 and music theory to grade 5, using the Associated Board of the Royal School of Music (ABRSM) syllabus. She is based in Toton - within easy reach of students from all over West Nottinghamshire and East Derbyshire.

Karen is hugely experienced in accompaniment and she accompanies all instrumentalists and vocalists for examinations up to grade 8. She is also available to accompany soloists and choirs for recital and concert performances.

Karen charges £13.50 for a 30 minute lesson - other lesson lengths are charged on a pro rata basis.

Email enquiries welcome but preferably please call 07800 854732 for an informal discussion on your teaching or accompaniment needs.
