Frequently Asked Questions
Do you give private music lessons?
Yes! I teach piano from beginner to grade 8 and music theory to grade 5. I'm happy for each pupil to work towards exams or just play for fun! I travel to pupils' houses around the Sutton Coldfield/Walsall area, so they will need a piano or keyboard to practise on. For beginners, I recommend the Axus Digital AXP2 - a touch sensitive keyboard (meaning you can play loud and quiet) for under £100.
Lessons typically include work on scales, theory, intervals, chords and improvisation as well as the pupil's main piece or pieces. Half an hour is usually long enough (especially for younger pupils), although 45 minute lessons are also available.
Are you available to play at my wedding/party/event?
If it's on a Saturday, probably! Just send me an email and ask.
Are you able to record/write music for my school?
Yes. If your school needs some music recording for the children to sing to during assemblies/performances, I can record and email it as an mp3 file.
Can you work out a piano transcription for a certain piece and send it me?
Possibly. I've done it before. Depends on the piece. Please ask!
