A little about us
Both with Masters degrees and piano teaching diplomas, we have over 60 years experience teaching all standards and all ages (6+). While our pupils have had success in performances, competitions and high Distinctions in piano exams, we are equally happy to teach those who just want to learn to play well for their own pleasure.
We teach at our home in Gold Hill, Chalfont St. Peter, or yours – as well as on-

How we see you and our role
We believe everyone is unique: if we put together everyone’s difficulties you’d wonder how anyone manages to play the piano and conversely if we put together everyone’s best first attempt, immediate successes, you’d wonder why when the piano is so easy everyone isn’t already playing! Everything is possible: it’s just a question of finding out how – which is what we’re here to do with you.
Our teaching approach can be summarised as “teaching you to teach yourself.” Let’s face it, your practice times are really DIY teaching sessions. As the Chinese proverb says: “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, whereas give him a rod and you’ll have fed him for life.”
Ultimately, we hope you will derive great joy and happiness from your progress and achievement at learning to play the piano.
