I am a Piano/Theory teacher with over 20 years experience of working with children and adults. I studied the Piano to degree level at Trinity College of Music, London. In addition to Piano teaching, I created and ran music classes for pre-school and primary aged children for over 10 years and I am a qualified Music Therapist.

I teach students from 6 years old to adult, who range from beginner to advanced. I successfully prepare students for the ABRSM practical and theory exams and I have 100% pass rate.

I tutor instrumentalists and singers for the aural component of ABRSM exams (Grade 6-8) and I prepare students for the practical requirement for GCSE and A Level music.

I approach each student as an individual who will learn in their own way and progress at their own speed. But the one element that all students have in common is the need for regular practice in order to progress. I support this by giving clear weekly goals. I am committed to giving a solid musical education and I introduce theory, sight-reading and listening skills early on in the learning process.

Practice and commitment are at the heart of progress and all students will naturally find that with regular practice their progress and enjoyment of the instrument will be greatly enhanced.

I teach in my own home and students come from kennington, Brixton, Clapham and Streatham as well as within walking distance in Stockwell, Oval and Camberwell.

Was baptised on 17 December 1770 he was a German composer and pianist. A crucial figure in the transition between the Classical and Romantic eras in Western art music, he remains one of the most famous and influential of all composers. His best-known compositions include 9 symphonies, 5 concertos for piano, 32 piano sonatas, and 16 string quartets. He also composed other chamber music, choral works and songs.

Born in Bonn, then the capital of the Electorate of Cologne and part of the Holy Roman Empire, Beethoven displayed his musical talents at an early age and was taught by his father Johann van Beethoven and Christian Gottlob Neefe. During his first 22 years in Bonn, Beethoven intended to study with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and befriended Joseph Haydn. Beethoven moved to Vienna in 1792 and began studying with Haydn, quickly gaining a reputation as a virtuoso pianist. He lived in Vienna until his death. In about 1800 his hearing began to deteriorate, and by the last decade of his life he was almost totally deaf. He gave up conducting and performing in public but continued to compose; many of his most admired works come from this period. in February 1818 Beethoven acepted a piano from Broodwoods England he worte

My very dear friend Broadwood,I have never felt a greater pleasure than your honours intimation of the arrival of this piano, with which you are honouring me as a present. I shall look upon it as an altar upon which I shall place the most beautiful offerings of my spirit to the divine Apollo. As soon as I receive your excellent instrument, I shall immediately send you the fruits of the first moments of inspiration I spend at it, as a souvenir for you from me, my very dear B.; and I hope that they will be worthy of your instrument.

My Dear Sir,Accept my warmest consideration, from your friend and very humble servant, Louis Van Beethoven Vienna,
