Learn how to play the piano The beginner lesson ONE.

Lesson 1
This will be an introduction to the piano.
I will encourage the students to play some notes on the piano, and I will talk about the importance of time, and also the stave where different notes sit on the ledger lines.
This will involve playing a couple of notes, to begin with.
Due to the nature of online lessons, this will mean that there is more of an element of listening required by the students and also by myself.

About Me

I have been teaching in the locality of Croydon for the past 8 years.
I come from a musical background as my dad used to play the piano and the ukulele and also the clarinet.
I decided initially with the piano, then I dabbled with the violin and achieved grade 4 with merit.
However, my fondness was for the piano and I passed my initial grade one and then got the taste for it and managed to pass all my piano grades including grade 8.
I have very good musicianship as I can adapt to different styles of music on the piano because I have played in a disco band and done quite a few projects in the past.
I have accompanied students for their instrumental exams in the past.
I have taught Sunday keyboard classes at Sangeetha UK in Croydon where I developed very good relationships with the students and the team. Some of my students performed at the Sangeetha concert which was videod.
I really engage with the student and my existing students would happily testify to that as they feel reassured that I am there to help them.
Even though the online lessons are quite different and strange to start with, eventually everyone settles down and the learning begins.
At my home address I have two pianos one for the student and one for me and this can be of added benefit to the student.
It is important that the student enjoys the lessons and I always ask them if they have enjoyed it at the end.
I have public liability insurance and a Dbs which is on the update service for your peace of mind guaranteed.

Rhiain Awel
Professionally Trained Harp Teacher in South Croydon and Surrounding Areas
Learn to play the harp with professionally trained harpist! Whether you're a complete beginner, an advanced musician or somewhere in between my harp lessons can be tailored to harpists of all levels and ages. Every pupil is different and learn in different ways and I believe that it is important to identify what each student responds to in order to get the best results. A solid technique is crucial but instead of repeating various technical exercises which can be a bit tedious, I try to identify these techniques within pieces of music, helping them understand how good technique affects and supports their everyday learning, practicing and performing.

Harples and solfège lessons for each level. By an enthusiastic harpist. Student at the conservatory with experience in teaching.
I am currently a student at the Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles. I am in my third bachelor. I have followed harp lessons for 13 years with various renowned teachers such as Eline Groslot and Annie Lavoisier. In this period I also gained a lot of experience as a concert harpist. With, among other things, the second prize in the competition Français de la Harpe (2017). And for 3 years I also give private lessons in harp and solfège. These lessons focus on both (young) children who want to learn harp and adults who want to start with harp. Each student is guided at his own pace and the lessons are adapted to the wishes of each student. Also, solfège lessons are adapted as much as possible to the pace of the student.
