I am a friendly and enthusiastic piano teacher with more than 30 years experience teaching children ages 6 years and up. Since moving to the UK from the Philippines (my birthplace) in 2008 and starting my private tuition business in Keynsham I have also included teaching adults (both beginners and advanced levels). I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education from my Alma Mater, St. Scholastica's College in Manila, Philippines and a Post Graduate Diploma in Music Education from the University of Regina, Regina Saskatchewan, Canada. Since I am classically trained my teaching method is quite traditional. I use method books gearing towards classical music but include popular tunes (film, broadway, light pop) in my repertoire. I prepare students for piano exams (ABRSM) with a 100% pass mark. I believe Music is the language of the soul and a gift from God that should be nurtured.

How would you describe your teaching style?

Traditional Teaching Method. I teach students how to read notes from first lesson. I use method books to teach. I teach to make the grades (ABRSM Exam Board) or just for leisure.

What qualifications do you have?

Bachelor's Degree in Music Education (Piano) Post Graduate Diploma in Education (Music)

I have more than 30 years experience in teaching piano to both children and adults. I also had 20 years experience in classroom Music teaching Grades 1-7 (Primary school age) in Maria Montessori Children's School Foundation in Manila, Philippines where I was born and raised. Since moving to the UK in 2008 I have continued my Private Tuition in Piano. I have prepared students for their piano exams (ABRSM) and am pleased to say that my pass rate is 100% with most earning a high Pass, Merit or With Distinction.

What locations do you tutor in?

I only teach at my residence in Keynsham.

What is your personal message to students?

Music is a universal language. Learning to play the Piano or any musical instrument should be learned with no stress. Anyone can learn to play an instrument and do well as long as there is passion, patience, and diligence in learning and practicing. Your talent is a gift from God, use it wisely.
