VC Music Tuition


I am currently taking on new students from September 2022, please do get in touch if you’d like a free 20 minute trial lesson!

I teach piano and keyboard to individual and small groups of students across Wiltshire. I am a passionate musician and I enjoy seeing students progress and enjoy learning a new instrument!

Throughout my career I have worked with students of all abilities and I focus my teaching around what students want to achieve. It could be graded music examinations, preparing for GCSE/A Level/Vocational performance exams, performing in a concert, becoming more confident, composition skills, music theory or learning pieces that students are currently listening to. I adapt my teaching based on what each individual student wants to achieve and this means a very personalised approach is taken. Each student has an individual learning plan which is completed on a regular basis and enables parents to support with practise time at home.

I am also an experienced classroom music teacher/head of department and I have taught classes of students from years 7-13.  I have experience in preparing students for GCSE, A Level and Vocational music & music technology exams. I really enjoy using technology as part of my classroom teaching and I also use this for individual piano/keyboard lessons. There are many ways that technology can be used as a performance/composition tool during individual lessons.
