Learn piano from the comfort of your home
with a qualified, experienced teacher

Locations, Levels and Ages Taught

I teach students in their own homes and not my own, so my teaching is centred in and around Histon and Impington to keep travel times practicable. I teach beginners to Grade 8, from age 7 through to adults. When necessary I am able to provide lessons online.

Teaching Philosophy

I offer a traditional approach to teaching, aiming to provide a solid foundation based on reading, technique, musicianship and historical awareness. I believe that this approach provides an effective gateway for exploring different musical genres as it maximises options due to being reading-based. I view exams as progressive stepping-stones rather than as exclusive targets; my main intention is to inspire enthusiasm and ensure progress through teaching music in various styles, leading to increased enjoyment of the instrument. When circumstances allow I organise an (optional!) friendly annual students' concert with refreshments in the Summer Term. This provides an opportunity for performing experience, and it also gives those taking part a chance to meet other piano students and hear them play.
