TEACHING & COACHING

I believe that you are as musically talented as you are fascinated and excited by music and that my job as a music teacher is to help you learn and practise effectively at your own pace, without pressure, removing any blocks that you may encounter along the way. To do this, l provide the following 7 things:

  • A carefully designed method or learning model with clear goals for you to follow
  • A lucid explanatory teaching style with plenty of practical demonstration
  • Carefully designed learning materials
  • Rigorous and encouraging coaching to help you practise effectively
  • Honest assessment and feedback at every stage
  • Patience and compassion, listening to my students attentively to make sure that my guidance is based on dialogue
  • Awareness of the collaborative nature of teaching and learning

I teach at home in my small, very well-equipped recording studio, with great sound, two excellent digital pianos and a very powerful silent Digital Audio Workstation running Cubase, Pianoteq and Finale and a host of other music software. I currently only teach adults, as my musical fluency course materials have not been designed for children. I may teach younger pupils in the future and am always willing to discuss this possibility in exceptional cases.

My fees are £50 for an hour’s session.
