For a strong foundation I teach beginners John Thompson’s Easiest Piano Course. This will develop technique, note reading in both hands and a basic understanding of keyboard harmony. This will benefit pupils of both piano and electronic keyboard. I encourage all styles of playing – classical, jazz or pop – and coach pupils taking exams at Associated Board or Trinity Board.
I use methods for beginners that are fun and easy to understand.
If you have your heart set on playing a particular piece of music then you must play it! Be inspired by it!
I’m happy to find any special requests. I have a large collection of music available and I can quickly transcribe music or songs for you at my 1/2 hourly rate.
If you would like help with the purchase of a keyboard or piano for you child, I am happy to make recommendations and give contact details of shops where instruments can be bought. It is essential that your child has an instrument to practice at home to facilitate their learning.
