I currently teach privately at my home in Leeds, as well as at the Yorkshire Music School in Saltaire, The Leeds Music Hub and the Learn to Rock institution in Ilkley. I have experience in teaching piano, singing and music theory to students of all ages and abilities, across a range of musical genres. As a practicing musician with years of performance experience, I believe I can help you, whether you're a parent looking for your child's first music lessons, or an adult who's always wanted to learn.
Everyone has different learning styles, abilities, interests and goals; my lessons are therefore tailored to suite the individual, whether that be playing for pleasure or working towards exams or performances. Graded exams can serve as great indicators of your level of ability and be useful tools to show progression (all my students have a100% pass rate!) However, they are not for everyone and are by no means essential in establishing rounded musicianship.
So as to avoid building a linear skill set and actively encourage well rounded musicianship, I incorporate a range of learning methods and skills. My ultimate goal is to help you enjoy making music. As well as providing a solid foundation in technique, my lessons aim to facilitate your ability to express yourself through music in an encouraging and non-judgmental environment. You’ll ideally leave feeling inspired and enthusiastic about what has been honed in the lesson and what is still to be discovered!
I have experience in teaching all of the ABRSM, Trinity and Rockschool syllabi. Should you choose to take an exam, we can discuss the best option to go for depending on your musical interests.
For younger beginners, I work from an assortment of books, such as the John Thompson and Fanny Waterman beginner collections. For adults, I use either the John Thompson for adults book or Alfred's basic piano course depending on what pupil preference.
