Teacher's Biography:

I am an experienced teacher of Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Music Theory & Composition.

As well as face-to-face, I've been teaching online for a while, making lessons interactive and clear via multiple webcams and a virtual piano. Students love these lessons as much as face-to-face!

All ages and abilities are welcome. I believe it's so important to tailor lessons to the learning style and music preferences of each individual. I'm incredibly versatile in the styles I teach, which include Classical, Jazz, Pop, Rock, Folk, and Electronic.

I've been told I have a patient and friendly approach and always like to keep lessons fun and engaging!
For those who wish to enter for exams, my student pass rate is 100%

I've led numerous ensembles including guitar and ukulele groups, jazz bands and choirs, and have led music workshops in primary schools.

I currently also work in the music industry as a composer and a performer and am a qualified music therapist.

I look forward to hearing from you!

I’ve so far had two lessons with Anna. She is very helpful and enthusiastic and has made the lessons enjoyable. She seems extremely musically talented too!


5 Star!! Anna is a fantastic piano tutor. She is knowledgable, professional and very patient. I have been seeing Anna once a week for 7 months now and can highly recommend her. She takes her time with me and goes at the pace I feel comfortable with. Thanks for all your help Anna.


Emily’s is loving her weekly lessons with Anna and is coming in faster than i could have imagined. thank you


I have had three lessons with Anna and found her to be very friendly and professional. Anna has been very patient with my attempts to play the saxophone. She has made lessons interesting and I have enjoyed trying to play familiar tunes. Anna is an excellent teacher and I have learnt far more than anticipated at this stage. I would be happy to recommend Anna to others.


Had 2 lessons and really enjoying it. My tutor, Anna is great and makes learning fun. Couldn’t recommend her enough.


Patient and versatile tutor. Great for a complete music novice.


My son has been seeing Anna for a while now , we moved away from the area and moved tutors for a while but he begged to go back to Anna, he s enthusiastic about going, and she certainly keeps him interested! Anna is very helpful with booking lessons and is as flexible as she can be running her own business Would highly recommend Anna as a tutor.


This was my first guitar lesson with Anna and I felt at ease straight away and learned so much. Anna has an excellent teaching approach, knew exactly what I was looking to get out of my lesson and I came away feeling confident and couldn’t wait to practice the new strumming technique, melody and chords which Anna put together for me. I would definitely recommend Anna.
Thank you so much.


Anna is a great teacher, has patience and a great understanding for an absolute beginner with guitar! The hour just flies by and very happy with how the lessons are going and would most definitely recommend Anna to anyone. Thanks Anna


Very supportive and encouraging. I’m also having tons of fun during the lessons.


Anna has helped recapture my enthusiasm playing the saxophone, she has tailored the lesson to suit my taste in music with jazz and blues as well as paying attention to accuracy in reading music and technique. I would highly recommend if your looking for a tutor.


We are very happy with Anna. My son loves that she is so flexible and willing to teach him songs that he wants to learn as well as teaching him the basics. Guitar lessons are never a chore and are always looked forward to. A highly recommended tutor 🙂


Very knowledgeable tutor, looking forward to more lessons.


Very pleased, my daughter loves going.
