Whether you’re a total beginner, a returner after many years or have taken grade 8 or more and want to keep playing/keep working, it’s a joy teaching adults and hopefully it’s a joy to learn!
Adults always have lives that need lots of juggling, whether working full or part time, a parent with young children or retired, so usually adults have lessons alternate weeks- it makes it easier to catch up if you have a ‘bad’ overstressful week! What this means is you get to have lessons either during the day or after younger children have lessons in the evening- so they get the slots that are weekly and aren’t too late for them. It seems to work very well!

Alan is one of my adult students who has embarked on piano lessons with me after many failed attempts at learning over the years. He says “After twenty years of failed attempts at learning piano, I finally feel like I’m making real progress. Grade 3 under my belt and sight reading actually working, which I never thought I’d crack. In every lesson Catherine seems to know just what to say to keep me motivated. I love every minute of the lessons.”
