Over the last five years, I have been teaching singing and piano in Hackney. I work with adults and children with many different reasons for wanting to sing or play.
Singing pupils range from experienced singers to complete beginners, including several who had always thought (or been told) that they were tone deaf or couldn’t sing. Other students have contacted me with problems such as loss of voice. or vocal strain, or with asthma, hoping to improve their breathing through singing. My younger pupils range from being confident performers to children who have not yet developed a reliable sense of pitch and all seem to gain much in confidence, whatever their starting point. With some pupils it has been useful to combine the singing work with basic general musicianship (both theory and simple keyboard skills) but all lessons vary according to particular interests or needs.
On the piano I teach classical piano often based around the ABRSM exam syllabus although as with my singing students, some prefer just to work on particular pieces they enjoy and improve their technique and general musicianship. When pupils pass Grade V standard I also coach them through the Grade V theory exam so they can take Grade VI.
I charge £40 per hour or £20 for 30 mins.
I teach weekday daytimes plus Monday-Thursday in to the early evening. Also sometimes Saturday mornings.
Anyone interested should book a taster session although I am getting quite booked up so you might have to wait a little. Some people come every week, some monthly, others just once in a while
