Candidates itching for results please note:

I've received them for all exams up to April 6th and I've already sent them to you or your parents.

There's no need to worry - if you didn't pass with Merit you passed with Distinction! 

   Piano Lessons for All!

I have 20 years' experience teaching budding pianists and keyboard players. I welcome all ages, from beginners 6 or 7 years old to people pursuing a rhythmic retirement (most of whom are beginners, too)!

Lessons offer fun and achievement. As for achievement, one of my pupils has passed his grade 6 exam with Distinction at the age of just 12, while Jim, in his eighties, has passed with Merit at the highest grade of all (grade 8)!

I help my pupils by composing pieces specially to suit their needs and their interests. The girl below is playing a piece

I based on a simple tune she sang.

Composition, song-writing and theory often feature in lessons. Once I've captured their interest, my pupils carry the gift of music wherever they go. In the words of a parent,
'Thank you for all your help and dedication in teaching Thomas here in Norfolk. He has loved his piano and will continue in Australia.'

I integrate modern and traditional methods. Modern ones include the use of computerised music files for exactness of rhythm and filming of hands to check on those fingers! 

I foster good technique from the start, and most of the photos on this page show an almost professional conformation of body and hand.
To suit different needs and preferences I've two pianos - a grand and an upright - and pupils sometimes get together to play duets. There's a mother and daughter duo above and a brother and sister duo below.
I'm based near North Walsham but can visit pupils in Cromer, Sheringham, Norwich and Yarmouth - something to bear in mind if you're thinking of buying lessons as a Christmas or birthday present for someone special.
