Debbie Rickhuss

About

My name is Debbie Rickhuss and I teach piano ranging from beginner to Grade 8. I have been teaching for over 30 years and currently work in three different schools at both primary and secondary level.  I have prepared students for ABRSM and also Trinity exam boards and I have a very high pass rate and many of my students also gain Merits or Distinctions.  I work with secondary school music departments to help KS4 students prepare for their GCSE and BTEC performances. I also teach the theory of music. I have taught KS1 and KS2 classroom music for the past 8 years as well.


What I / we help young people achieve

I am constantly looking at new books and software to help motivate childrens interest in music. I have years of experience at putting children through ABRSM grade exams and I also like to take time away from exam material to explore different genres such as jazz, popular music and duets. I have a broad repertoire to offer students but am also happy to confer with music department staff (especially in secondary schools) regarding appropriate pieces for KS4 music students.
