A bit about me
I have been involved with teaching the piano for the last 30 years and hopefully inspired many pianists to enjoy this wonderful instrument .
I have written over 200 educational music books and have been fortunate enough to have travelled the world giving workshops to teachers and pupils.
Playing the piano is a skill for life.
As well as being an enjoyable experience it can also help with many coordination problems we may find in later life. Stimulating the left and right sides of the brain is hugely beneficial!
Playing the piano will also help with many things and you will also feel an amazing sense of achievement in trying to play.
It will open up a whole new world to you, so come on, give it a try!
I do hope to see you on the course. Please book a place soon before it gets booked up – click here to download the booking form.
