I have over 19 years' experience teaching students of all ages and abilities. Although a classically trained pianist, I am also able to offer tuition in other styles such as jazz, pop, and rock. Music lessons with me are fun and engaging, and tailored to the preferred learning style and tastes in music of each student, whilst at the same time ensuring a solid foundation in appropriate technique, aural skills, and sightreading to support the development of well-rounded musicians.
The benefits of learning a musical instrument are vast: scientific research has long proven that those who learn a musical instrument have advanced brain processing abilities, increased concentration and memory, and improved co-ordination and motor skills, to name but a few. Learning an instrument instills a sense of self-discipline and patience, heightens self-awareness, communication, and boosts self-esteem.
I offer tuition on the following:
Piano (all abilities)
Music theory (all abilities)
60 minutes: £45 30 minutes: £22.50
Payment is made via online banking in advance, and for a block of four lessons at a time (unless by prior arrangement). Lessons are held in Highworth and Swindon, UK. Online lessons are also available via Zoom/Skype.
Missed lessons with less than 24 hours' notice will still be charged.
I hold full Public Liability insurance through the Musicians' Union, and am enhanced-DBS checked. I undertake Child Protection & Safeguarding Training every year with Swindon Borough Council.
