Online lessons available
I teach classical guitar, piano and music theory, in addition to offering tutoring for music at GCSE and A Level. I have many years of additional experience teaching for both Barnet Education Arts Trust and Hertfordshire Music Service, with an up-to-date DBS certification available to see on request.
Both adults and children above seven years of age are welcome, and I currently offer teaching for the following standards:
Guitar: all abilities
Piano: up to around Grade 5
Music Theory and/or ear training: all abilities
It is a priority for me to make lessons engaging and varied for students.
For those interested in working towards exams, I offer thorough preparation for exams on the two main boards (ABRSM or Trinity).
An emphasis is placed on sourcing good quality and appealing repertoire for students, and I take the stance that if pupils genuinely enjoy the pieces they are studying, then the level of motivation and engagement will be increased.
Lesson Lengths and Prices
1 hour £33
45 minutes £25
30 minutes £17
20 minutes £12
For a child beginner, I would recommend 20 minutes for the first lessons, before moving to more time. A couple of lessons per week would be very helpful to establish foundations for a beginner, although I am also happy to offer single weekly lessons. Lessons are currently in an online format, although garden-based lessons are also possible for those that live in the vicinity.
Parental support for children's practice is very important, and their presence at lessons for younger learners is required.
Please contact me if you would like to book lessons and discuss your requirements. I would be happy to answer any questions you might have, and to organise a consultation lesson.
