I am not only dedicated, but completely absorbed and passionate about music education in all it's forms. Because I am actively in the world of piano performance, I am constantly exploring new ways to give my students the performance experiences they need in order to succeed for exams and concerts.

I am Director of Piano Studies at St Albans High School for Girls (Sunday Times Best Independent School in the UK 2016) and also at Aldenham School. In total I have 13 years of experience as a teacher, adjudicator and have given public masterclasses around the UK. Past students have gone on to gain distinctions at all the graded levels, and have won places at the Royal Academy of Music and Trinity College of Music to name a few.

Every lesson is considered and planned with a focus on a variety of skills that are important to succeed as a musician and pianist. From aural training, to technical exercises that I tailor to each individual; every lesson will have a little of something. Theory is also a huge part of learning the piano and a focus on this too can be useful when it comes to trying to memorise pieces, that would otherwise be very difficult. £45 for 45 minutes.
