FREE PIANO PLAYING TIPS for everyone:
Who is your favourite composer? There is such a wide range of piano music to play from the last 500 years plus modern contemporary, jazz, pop, boogie & blues, and even orchestral themes - you'll never be bored again! Many adult pupils find half an hour practice after work relaxes & enhances their mood, ready to shrug off the cares of the day, pop on the slippers & enjoy the evening! I have taken adults from complete scratch to playing fave tunes both hands in one to three years, depending on time the player has available. I also teach adults refresher courses - ideal if you previously reached a high standard but now struggle to find relevant material to play. Lots of superb testimonials!
