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.
Composition, theory and song-writing often feature in lessons,
and some of my pupils' songs have gone global through the
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 help and 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!
I foster good technique from the start, and most of the photos on this page show an almost professional conformation of body and hand.
To suit different needs and preferences I've two pianos - a grand and an upright - and pupils sometimes get together to play duets. There's a mother and daughter duo here and a brother and sister duo below.
I'm based near North Walsham but can visit pupils in Cromer, Sheringham, Norwich and Yarmouth - something to bear in mind if you're thinking of buying lessons as a Christmas or birthday present for someone special.
