I teach piano at Kesteven and Grantham Girls School and have a well established private practice for all ages and abilities.
You can prepare for Trinity or ABRSM examinations, or just learn for pleasure. Not everyone wishes to be a professional musician - enjoyment is key!
"Thank you so much Jenny for the excellent piano tuition my daughter has received. Your teaching methods and approach to music have instilled her with confidence and enthusiasm and helped to give her a sense of self-belief in her own natural ability, which is inspiring her to great things" (A parent)
"Jenny is a wonderful teacher and person too!" (An adult student)
"Thanks Jenny for all of your hard work and encouragement of Chloe this year. Very pleased with her exam result and she should like to continue to grade 5" (A parent)
"I am so pleased to have met you. My piano dream has come a massive step close to reality thanks to you." (An adult student)
Music theory is the study of the practices and possibilities of music. Most commonly, the term describes the academic study and analysis of fundamental elements of music (e.g. pitch, rhythm, harmony and form). The examination is a written one, with build up exercises used as preparation.
It is a requirement that if people wish to enter for grade 6 ABRSM they must have passed grade 5 theory. For Trinity performance-based assessments, there is currently no theory requirement.
Some people, however, do have an interest in music theory and it can be of great value to those wishing to persue a musical career.
Students can choose to follow the Trinity or the ABRSM syllabus. Trinity Rock is also an option. Some students don't wish to take examinations and that's fine too.
