I teach how to read music at the same time as learning all the techniques of playing the piano, so I find that as soon as a child has basic reading skills, from approximately 6 years old, they can learn to play and read music.
There are no age limits to learning the piano either, I'm a firm believer that it's never too late to learn! If you find you have some spare time...why not learn a new skill?
School Music Exams
I also offer a service helping with school music exams, for example help with composition, arranging, listening and practical exams.
I offer tuition that covers the Associated Board of the Royal School of Music exams up to approximately Grade 7, with all that it entails. I also can help students work towards their Grade 5 theory exams. It's up to the individual if they would like to sit the exams and I'm more than happy to get all my students through them.
I find that 1/2 hour lessons are fine when first starting, especially for children, progressing to 1 hour lessons if you, or your child wishes to work on attaining the Associated Board certificates.
15 minute short lessons can be an option for very young children who would find sitting still for 1/2 an hour challenging!
Lessons can be paid for in a block as per the school term, or on a lesson-by-lesson basis if preferred. Discounts are available for 10 lesson block bookings,see below:

I also offer a CD recording service where students can record a few of their favourite tunes as a unique gift idea...perfect for Grandparents, aunties etc.
Price on request.
For the person who has everything, why not give the gift of music?! Gift vouchers are available to pay for anything from 1 lesson to 10 lessons...also available for existing students.
