My Experience as a Piano Teacher

I have over 30 years’ experience in piano teaching.

I have two professional diplomas in piano teaching awarded by the Royal Academy of Music (LRAM) and the Guildhall School of Music (LGSM).

I particularly enjoy working with young beginners but am equally experienced in teaching teenagers and adults, whether beginners or advanced.

All students I’ve entered for exams have passed with merit or distinction.

One of my former pupils is now principal conductor with the Sri Lanka Symphony Orchestra!

About Me

Born in Edinburgh, I qualified as a piano teacher following studies at Napier College, where I was awarded an ‘outstanding student’ medal.

I subsequently graduated from the University of Birmingham with a B.Mus (Hons).

Whilst there I was fortunate to be taught by the distinguished Hungarian pianist Joseph Weingarten, a graduate of the Liszt Academy in Budapest, whose teachers included both Kodaly and Dohnanyi.

I am a professionally qualified youth worker with a postgraduate certificate in Youth and Community Studies awarded by Brunel University.

As a former youth worker with Dorset County Council’s Youth Offending Team, I gained valuable experience in motivating young people.

Now living in Blandford Forum, I enjoy my life as a piano teacher and accompanist.
