Experienced piano teacher offering private lessons in Hertfordshire for beginner and intermediates

Methodology

As a teacher, I try to combine proper technique with enjoyable material to foster a genuine love for music and the instrument. The way I teach depends on the needs of my students, as everyone learns differently. I teach all ages and beginner to intermediate skill levels. If desired, I would be able to prepare students for examinations.

Background

I am a professional songwriter (SOCAN, PRS) with degrees from Berklee College of Music (Boston, USA) (Songwriting, Film Scoring, voice principal instrument) and Mohawk College of Arts and Technology ( (Jazz piano, big band arranging). I am currently a student at Abbey Road Institute (London, UK) (Sound Engineering and Music Production). I have studied classical, contemporary, musical theatre, and jazz voice and piano for 15 years. I have been performing professionally and teaching for 10+ years.

I strive to inspire a love of music in my students by teaching the necessary skills in performance, composition and theory, to help them excel in music, whether they want to pursue it as a hobby or career. An engaged and passionate teacher, I thrive teaching in both one-on-one and group settings.
