“Elaine has guided me from rank beginner to Grade 5, so far, on piano and Grade 3 Piano Theory. She has great skills as a pianist and is an expert in theory and all aspects piano music. I chose formal tuition because I had heard about the mistakes and bad technique that self-learners acquire and really wanted to learn correct methods of play from the outset. She’s great fun, always encouraging and I always enjoy my lessons.” (Paul, aged 57)

“I have been having piano lessons for two years with Elaine and I have passed Grades 1 and 2 with distinction. I have theory lessons with Elaine too and she makes them fun.” (Bethany, aged 12)

“I look forward to my lessons with Elaine. I am on my Grade 2 now and she says I’m coming on very well.” (Francesca, aged 9)

“Elaine helped me get up to Grade 8 theory in order that I could gain admission to university to study music as a mature student.” (Samantha, aged 25)

“I have always wanted to play the piano but never had the opportunity to learn. I decided to start taking lessons when I retired two years ago. I have been studying with Elaine and am now playing some of the pieces I have always wanted to play – Bach, Beethoven, Chopin and also some jazz standards. I am studying music theory and have many stimulating discussions with Elaine about all matters musical.” (Duncan, aged 61)

“Elaine is easy to understand and from the three teachers I’ve had she is the best.” (Lauretta, aged 13)

“Elaine’s lessons encourage talent and passion as a musician and give the opportunity to play a broad spectrum of music from contempory to classical and jazz. I came to Elaine as a GCSE music student hoping to gain a grade 5 in piano, in order to get into university in 3 years time. Not only did I gain grade 5 in just 18 months, I now have the opportunity to develop my playing to a much higher standard. Elaine is also an excellent theory teacher. I have worked quickly toward a grade 5 level thanks to her simple yet interesting methods of teaching. At the same time she has helped me broaden my knowledge of music, helping me through my GCSE and A Level music courses.” (Becci, aged 18)
