Leeds Piano Teacher


“As an adult who had previously never played piano, I thought it would be impossible to learn. Karen’s patient and enthusiastic approach has encouraged me to keep going and I have now passed my first four grades, all with merit.”



If you are interested in taking piano exams, I can help you progress through the eight grades offered by the ABRSM (Associated Board for the Royal Schools of Music) or the Trinity Guildhall. As a stepping stone to Grade 1, young beginners may also like to take the piano prep test or piano initial exam.

I have a 100 per cent pass rate for exams, with many students achieving merits or distinctions.

I normally teach theory as part of piano lessons, but can also offer separate theory lessons should you require them. Grade 5 theory is often an entry requirement for higher education music courses and I have assisted many students in achieving this level, with a series of dedicated Grade 5 theory lessons.
