I am committed to building a very good foundation of music learning for students. I would like to help my students achieve their best exam results (leisures are also welcome) and be able to perform well across different repertoire. I will design and organise effective approaches to help students learn. Lessons will be provided in a friendly, supportive and encouraging environment.

I will teach with a focus on reading, techniques, performance and interpretation skills. I will give some constructive criticism and spend a lot of time working to refine students' techniques. I will also teach strategies for efficient learning and practice so students can use these strategies during at-home practice.

My teaching style is patient, enthusiastic and encouraging. I strive to ensure that all students enjoy learning piano when they come to me as I always believe "Music makes people happy".

Student Feedback

Shona H. (Student)

Katy is a very dedicated and experienced piano teacher. My son enjoys his lessons and Katy has a beautiful way with him and is very motivating. I love the fact that her lessons are quiet and private with no other classes going in at the same time.

Katy is a very professional and knowledgeable teacher. I have been receiving weekly lessons for about 6 months and have improved my skills drastically in that time. She is very patient and understanding with beginners and has great feedback to keep you improving all the time. I previously self taught for 2 years and had developed a good sense of the piano, but needed help with more technical skills and especially sight reading. Katy has helped me improve in these areas, and her knowledge of classical piano is very helpful for the style of music I want to learn.

Katy is a brilliant and caring teacher. Dhyana has improved significantly and has enjoyed her piano lessons. Katy’s organised lessons have helped me as a parent to monitor Dhyanas progress.
