My Experience as a Teacher

Throughout my time in education, I picked up many teaching methods and processes from world renowned specialists that I now apply within my own lessons. I am a proud alum of the New Conservatory of Thessaloniki, University of Macedonia and the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire.

I have also taught for numerous institutes, some of which include Burton Yamaha Music School, the New Conservatory of Thessaloniki, Giannitsa Music Lab and many others.

As a teacher, I have become adept in identifying the subtle habits of pianists which help me to guide students towards better technique and musicality in a positive, and encouraging manner. It is the little things that set us apart as players, and I ensure learners make the most out of their practice time by instilling skills and routines that will help bolster their ability to express.

More About My Lessons

Students of mine benefit from logically laid out and meticulously planned lessons, which aim to provide the utmost efficiency and progress during practice time outside of lessons. My goal is always to help get students further, quicker in their playing.

Though my lessons are planned strategically, they are always presented in a positive and relaxed manner. Learning a musical instrument should be an exciting experience for all, regardless of age or skill level, so it is my priority that all students are kept enthused and intrigued from lesson to lesson!

Their is no such thing as 'one method fits all' when it comes to piano, or music in general for that matter. Each learner is different in age, ability and musical interest, so I strongly believe that lessons should reflect this also. My lesson plans will always be tailored to your own specifics.

Frequently Asked Questions

My lessons cost £17.50 for 30 minutes and £27.50 for 60 minutes.

My lessons can either take place at my home here in Sutton Coldfield, or at a space of your choosing if you wish to take advantage of my mobile service. I also offer online lessons for those further afield via platforms such as Zoom and Skype.

I teach students any age from 5 years old and upwards. My current students are a combination of young beginners and adult pianists, though it is certainly worth noting that it is never too late to begin learning a musical instrument! I have had great success in teaching senior adults.

You are not required to attend a lesson each week, however I do recommend that students do not leave more than two weeks between each appointment. This is simply to ensure that information is fresh from lesson to lesson, and that your fingers keep progressing at a steady rate.

If you must cancel a lesson, that is completely understandable. Life can throw us surprises at any turn, and sometimes cancellations or unavoidable. I do ask students however, to abide by my 48 hour cancellation policy which simply means that should you need to cancel, you must inform me 48 hours or more prior to the agreed time slot.
