I started learning the piano formally when I was eight years old, having previously learned what I could by pestering anyone I met who could play the piano! Eventually my mother let me call up a local piano teacher, who went on to teach me for over a decade. She was creative and encouraging, and we soon forged a great relationship which is still going strong. I developed over the years and while studying at the University of Cambridge through private study, ABRSM exams (I attained the highest Classical and Jazz grades), formal education, regular concert performances and courses with Nelly Ben-Or, the leading exponent of piano playing with the Alexander Technique.

I first began teaching at age 13, initially mentored by my own piano teacher, and have taught adult, teenage and child beginners in North London. Ongoing professional development is important to me, and since becoming a full time piano teacher I have attained the Certificate of Teaching from the ABRSM, and am currently studying for my ATCL diploma. I offer piano lessons for students of all ages and abilities, close to Old Street, Liverpool Street and Moorgate tube stations.

My lessons encourage a relaxed, fun approach to learning the piano, and I aim to pass on my enthusiasm and nurture a lifelong interest in this rewarding instrument. If you would like to book a free consultation please contact me through this website, or via my own website:

Group Classes

Adult beginner taster piano course

Interested in learning the piano as an adult? Why not try a short taster course, in a friendly environment, close to the City? I am starting a small adult class which will cover some of the essentials that all beginners need to master. This is a great way to get started, and to try things out before making a bigger commitment.

The three week taster course runs from 29th November, with longer courses available next year. Places for the taster are limited and allocated first come, first served.

Benefits of group learning

There are many benefits to learning in a group, especially in the early stages.

• Mastering the basics can be more stimulating and fun in a group setting
• Students can deepen understanding by observing/helping others
• Group activities enable more varied learning opportunities
• It can help sustain motivation

What is involved in the taster course?

Course: The course is designed to give beginners an insight into the challenges and rewards of learning to play the piano. Each lesson will have a specific focus, with handouts detailing the material covered. Work will be divided between shared piano study and group musicianship activities, with some optional performance opportunities.

Teacher: Experienced, relaxed, qualified teacher:

Length: Three 50 minute lessons, with practise tasks set each week

Cost: £90, due in advance


No previous musical experience is necessary, but each student must have access to some form of piano or keyboard during the week. If you do not own an instrument, you may be able to book time (for free) on two digital pianos in the Barbican Centre library.
