I have over 35 years’ experience in teaching young children and adults to play the piano and I am DBS Verified. I will take you from the basics of learning to play the piano right through to your first solo performance.
You are never too old to take piano classes. I have taught people in their 70s to play piano. I have coached many students to give award-winning performances in competition. I will help you to improve your piano playing skills.
I am a classically trained pianist and have coached many students to give award-winning performances in competition. I can help you study for Music Performance diplomas DipABRSM or LRSM and improve your technique.
Theory is an important part of playing piano. Without knowledge of Solfege, learning to play piano is like trying to learn to read without knowing the basic alphabet or rules of grammar. Theory classes are offered to groups of up to 4 students.
I teach piano classes in my studio in Middlesbrough to pupils in Middlesbrough, Stockton on Tees, Yarm, Redcar and the surrounding Teesside area using my Kawai Baby Grand piano. A parent or friend is welcome to accompany you to your lesson.
As well as English, I speak both Spanish and Polish fluently. So if you are a visitor to the North East wanting to learn piano, I can help and tailor your lessons to best suit your ability whether you are a beginner or experienced pianist.
