My name is Rosie Blackwood and I have been teaching piano and flute for many years.  I am passionate about music and love witnessing the development of individuals into musical beings.  I truly believe that everyone has the capacity to learn an instrument and am proud to be in a job where I can facilitate this. I am happy to teach people of all ages and abilities and have helped pupils with their music exams from Prep Test to Grade 8.  I teach from my own home in Churchdown, Gloucestershire and also privately within local primary schools.

My preferred exam board is the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) of whom I am a member, and whose exams I encourage and support pupils to take and pass.  I am also able to support pupils who chose to take exams using the Trinity Guildhall syllabus if this is their preference.  I will also assist pupils in preparing music for school exams and performances or those who are choosing to learn specific pieces.  There is never any pressure to take an exam.

 

I am a member of the Musician's Union and have enhanced DBS and child safeguarding training.

 

If you would like any more details then please contact me for more information.

Did You Know Piano Facts

What is the difference between Overdamping and Underdamping?

Overdamping is a system whereby the piano damping mechanism (the bit that shuts the piano up) is situated above the hammer strike line. Underdamping is where the piano dampers are placed below the hammer strike line. Advantages and disadvantages. Overdamping. Imagine an elastic band three-foot long, you twang it and then put your finger near to the end of the elastic band, to stop it vibrating. This is overdamping

.

Take the same elastic band and place your finger near the centre to stop it from vibrating this is underdamping, which of course is more efficient. Overdamping is controlled by gravity where as underdamping is controlled by adjustable springs so on the whole underdamping is far more efficient than overdamping. However, there is one disadvantage with underdamping. That is, if the dampers are incorrectly aligned to the nodes and antinodes of the vibrating string this will result in, the dampers when they come in contact with the string, emphasising certain harmonics on the piano, thus giving you a harmonic ring, this is more common on small uprights and small grandís as the margin of tolerance decreases as the piano becomes smaller.
