Piano for All!
Piano for All!
I have 20 years' experience teaching budding pianists and keyboard players.
I welcome all ages, from beginners 6 or 7 years old to people pursuing
a rhythmic retirement (most of whom are beginners, too)!
Lessons can be fun and they also give you the chance to shine!
One of my pupils has passed his grade 6 exam with Distinction
at the age of just 12, while Jim, in his eighties, has passed
with Merit at the top grade (grade 8)!
I encourage my pupils by composing pieces specially for them.
The girl in the photo is playing a piece I based on a simple tune she sang.
Once I've captured their interest, my pupils carry the gift of music wherever they go. In the words of a parent, Thank you for all your dedication in teaching Thomas here in Norfolk. He has loved his piano and will continue in Australia.
Alongside traditional methods I use modern ones, such as computerised music files for exactness of rhythm and filming of hands to check on those fingers!
During the covid outbreak I've pioneered the use of cameras and monitors so that the student and I, at separate pianos, can watch each other's fingers better than ever before!
As well as fostering good technique I keep my pupils interested, and the young ones enjoy a variety of musical games and activities. Song-writing often features in lessons, and some of my pupils' songs have gone global through The Worldwide Song Project!
I'm based near North Walsham but can visit pupils in Cromer, Sheringham and Norwich - something to bear in mind if you're thinking of buying lessons as a gift for someone special.
