Learn for Exams and For Fun
Before I started to teach I thought long and hard about how I would wish to be taught and what differences could I actually make to a students education in music. Would I teach the same methods as I was taught many years before or try and change that.
Many teachers today still teach by the old methods and they work to a point, however I found ways to make the learning process faster, enjoyable and retaining the discipline required to learn. I have not changed my method and the proof is in all the students who have passed their examinations over the years.My students on average learn 3 times faster with my methods.
I don't just teach piano for examinations.Learning exam after exam is not good practice although it might be quick you will miss out on so much enjoyment of other music. Learning for fun can also give you a skill for life.
Alan Fletcher from Neighbours
Personalized. Comprehensive. Fun.
Passing Exam Grades can help you get into University and College.
Learning the piano allows the student to be more creative in life and comes with so many benefits for their studies at school as their own well-being and nurturing their future.
I do everything possible to help all my students get the best our of learning this special skill and craft.
Building confidence and giving them a strong foundation in learning not just music but other aspects of their lives. I'm not the average piano teacher, I support parents and guide the family not just the student.
Psychology plays a very important part in learning and understanding a student. This is one major aspect of my teaching.
