My Mission

Enjoy Learning

I am a qualified music teacher having gained a MA in Music from the University of Newcastle, as well as my Grade 8 on piano. I think the most important aspect of helping my students learn to play the piano is to ensure that it is an enjoyable process.

I have been teaching piano for over 20 years to both adults and children. Alongside my piano teaching have also worked extensively as a resident pianist in a five star hotel, played in choirs, for occasions such as weddings and other events as well as participated in music festivals along with my students.

My Experience as a Teacher

I have been teaching piano for over 20 years to both adults and children, welcoming students from all backgrounds to enjoy playing the piano.

During these years I have also been a very active musicians and pianist in my own right, having performed at numerous venues. My career as a professional musician helps me to build courses of lessons even for the most advanced pianist that I teach.

For students who are interested I also offer the opportunity for them to take part in recitals, as well as go through the piano grades. This is entirely optional and will depend on the goals of a student on whether this is a path that interests them. Many of my students simply learn for their own enjoyment and you can as well.

More About My Lessons

I always like to make sure I structure my lessons on what you want to learn, blending this with technical exercises and theory that I have found really helps my students to develop a well rounded understanding of music. With this holistic approach to learnign the piano, combined with exciting lessons covering all styles, I help students who are complete beginners on the piano play the music that they are passionate about with confidence and ability.

I welcome students from the ages of 4 years old and upwards, teaching many young learners as well as adults how to play the piano. There is no upper age limit to start playing the piano, so you are never too old to start.

Additionally, I have a wide range of experience in teaching both beginners and advanced players. I will always take the time to understand your current level then make a suitable lesson plan that works for you to help you progress.

Frequently Asked Questions

My lessons are charged at £16 per half hour and £32 per hour for all.

I teach the majority of my lessons from my home teaching space based in Derby, DE73 6UX.

My lessons are for all students and I offer tuition to students aged 4 and up.

Most of my piano students take a weekly one hour lesson, with a few taking lessons every other week. It is completely up to you when you would like the schedule your lessons – you can have them once a week, every fortnight or two lessons a week if you are working towards an event or exam. I find that weekly half hour lessons work really well for children and young people under 12.

Lessons cancelled with less than 48 hours notice will still be charged full price.
