I offer tailored piano lessons to suit you, whether you are an advanced pianist or a complete beginner, an adult or a 4 year old, a serious musician or someone simply wanting to learn the piano as an enjoyable pastime.
My priority to my students is to give them an enjoyment of learning and playing the piano through an understanding of music and an excellent technique. Sitting of graded exams are an option, but these should be viewed as occasional achievement goals, rather than the sole purpose of lessons. Not focussing solely on exams means that my students have the freedom to develop fully at the piano, rather than merely learning how to pass an exam, (although when they do choose to sit exams, they are always prepared exceptionally well).
I teach music theory alongside practical piano lessons to complement understanding of music. If required, I prepare students for ABRSM and Trinity theory exams (currently up to grade 5), making sure that theoretical knowledge is kept relevant to practical work. I also offer an ABRSM theory past paper marking service, with a choice of price options (marked only, or marked with feedback) For more details about my teaching practice, including prices, vacancies, and information on distance theory marking, or learning piano as a beginner, intermediate, or a post-grade 8 student, please go to: www.lynnephillips.com
