So, you want to learn to play the piano?
Learning to play the piano is an immensely rewarding experience. It is engaging and deeply satisfying on so many levels. I teach all levels from beginner to concert performance. If you are starting to learn, we would usually start with some simple and enjoyable pieces to develop good basic technique. Alongside the classical repertoire we would incorporate other styles such as pop, rock, jazz and of course, the joys of ragtime! Intermediate and advanced students may have specific areas of technique, musicality and repertoire that you want to work on. At our first meeting we will discuss general aims and focus for your lessons - and then see what evolves!
I offer weekly sessions using ‘Zoom’. This is a fantastic way of enjoying individual piano lessons whilst staying at home. You can record the lesson on your computer and return to it as a helpful practice tool.
Corona Virus Update. Lessons will be online until further notice when I will return to giving weekly lessons from my studio in South East London. Lessons could be continued online if you wish.
Some words about me
"Kate is a highly skilled, patient and intuitive teacher. She refreshed my keyboard skills. Presenting as a very rusty, middle aged Grade 7 pianist tied to the dots, Kate stretched me to the point where I could play complex pieces from memory - an aspiration I had long held. Thank you for making good memories for us, Kate." Sally Manser, Director of Creating Success EAZ.
“Kate is a thoughtful and adventurous musician and has wide ranging experience as a performing pianist and teacher.” Max Richter
