My Experience as a Teacher

I have been teaching piano for over 20 years to both adults and children. I teach the age range of 4 years and beyond. Not only do I enjoy teaching, but I also enjoy playing the piano.

I have also worked as a resident pianist in a five-star hotel, played in choirs, for occasions such as weddings and funerals as well as participated in music festivals along with my students.

In my teaching, I encourage all my students to enjoy music as they learn. I also encourage them to play in public performances and always look for or create opportunities to do this, including organising recitals. I always give the option of taking music exams as well.

I build my lessons around the music you love

More About My Lessons

I always like to make sure I structure my lessons on what you want to learn. I feel it is important to focus on the genres and music that you love as this is the best way to improve.

I feel there shouldn't be an age limit for learning music so my lessons are open to almost all ages. I would, however, recommend that children don't start to learn any younger than 4.

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.

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.
