“Karen is a very supportive teacher, who always encourages you to play to the best of your ability whilst still maintaining a 'fun' atmosphere.
I would recommend her to anyone.”

"We can't thank you enough for all your efforts and patience with our son. He loves piano, more so because you teach him. I am sure we won't find anyone like you when we move."

I enjoy teaching people of all ages and abilities. My youngest pupils are just six years old and the eldest, well past ‘retirement’ age.
Piano lessons are given weekly, on a one-to-one basis and normally last for 30 minutes. More advanced students may prefer to come for an hour every two weeks.
All lessons are taught on an upright Yahama acoustic piano in a dedicated music room.
My approach to the lessons is informal, encouraging and enthusiastic. It is important to me that students feel they are progressing and enjoy their piano playing experience. Everyone is different and I shall tailor lessons to each individual student.
I am very happy for parents to sit in on lessons. I think it is particularly useful in the early stages of learning, as it will help you guide and support your child whilst they are practising at home.
