I am employed both in the performing arts and education sectors, excited to help develop musicians of the future. Hence I run a small private teaching practice, teach at the Young Actors Theatre Islington, the Dan Tien, the Herts Music Centre, and regularly cover with the London Music Institute. Perhaps it is helpful to know that I maintain a fully enhanced DBS check and obtained a "safeguarding in education" certificate. I also hold a CertHE in psychodynamic psychotherapy and have experience working with SEND. Students of all ages, experience levels and musical abilities are welcome! Whether you are looking for a new hobby or want to prepare for auditions, ABRSM / Trinity exams, or professional performances, this course provides lessons tailored to your or your child's goals.
Together, we will discover the potential of your instrument by building on skills in vocal technique, such as breath support and projection. Because vocal health is vital in your singing journey, you will learn fun warm-ups that enrich your vocal technique. Text interpretation will be a focal point of your musicianship and development of performance skills. I provide piano accompaniment throughout the lessons.
I teach piano initiation up to grade eight. Whether we work with music games or classical repertoire, piano lessons will include an element of music theory to help your musicianship skills flourish.
Successful completion of the ABRSM grade five allows students to proceed to grade six with instruments and singing. I will gladly guide you or your child towards completing grade five. Previous students had high success rates with distinctions of 80% and above. Ideally, lesson hours are fifty minutes in duration because music theory lessons require great concentration.
