In order to make any real progress in playing a musical instrument it is important that you try to develop a routine of practising in a systematic way. Regular and thoughtful practice is important to developing musical skills. Even practising for 20 minutes a day will be much more beneficial than practising for 2 hours once a week.

Beginners may be encouraged to practise for about 15 – 20 minutes most days. Pupils working at elementary to intermediate levels should be aiming at about 20 – 30 minutes per day. Pupils working at intermediate to advanced levels should be aiming at about 30 – 45 minutes per day. Advanced players should be aiming to spend about an hour a day, or more, practising.

Here are some hints as to how you can make the most effective use of your practice time:
^ Make sure that your posture is good – that you are sitting up straight and that your hand position is correct on the piano keyboard.
^ Practise with separate hands to begin with.
^ Practise short sections at a time.
^ Make sure that you are using the correct fingering, and try to keep your fingering consistent.

Always listen to your playing, keeping the following in mind:

^ Keep the tempo consistent throughout.
^ Keep the rhythm and the phrasing even.
^ Take care to observe any dynamic or expression markings.
^ Be careful not to bump out notes in the middle of phrases.

I teach each student individually, giving one to one tuition at their piano/keyboard and promote personal focus on their own music


My students use a songbook, soon playing songs from Mozart to High School Musical! I focus on teaching how to play and read music, melody playing, chords and scales, basic skills and techniques.


Each week, after each piano lesson, majority of my students are issued with music homework. This enjoyable music homework is fun and provides a structure for regular practicing and promotes musical progress.


Learning how to play piano is fun! With a step-by-step weekly lesson, introducing diverse styles of music from all different cultures, including pop, classical, jazz and more!


Each student will learn to read music and grasp the basic foundation of rhythm and notation in a fun, friendly and relaxed environment, building their self-confidence.


Hand and eye co-ordination, body posture and thought, all working together, are the ingredients needed to play an instrument. These co-ordination skills transfer to many other aspects in life.


Students that reach the required standard can be entered for examination Grade 1 to 8 with the Associated Board of Royal School of Music (A.B.R.S.M)


I can also help to improve piano playing standards for students who are planing to enter into Higher Education Institution (BA, BMus) or want to become a Music Teacher via PGCE or GTP.
