Operating as usual


Our summer term starts back today! Lots of new music getting started. Can’t wait. 🙂


Happy world piano day! The 88th day of the year.


So we are now two weeks into the term. New songs have been chosen, goals have been set and our new classes are filling up.
We have also had one broken piano (which I fixed eventually!) and a broken door handle (should be fixed soon) 🙈
But the highlight of the week was definitely a home baked cupcake from a pupil. Thanks Hannah! 🙂🥰


New beginner classes starting next Tuesday. 3.30-4.15 for P3/4 and 5.45-6.30 for P5/6. These were opened up to our waiting list yesterday and so we only have a couple of spaces in both classes. Get in touch to book or to ask any questions. 🙂


Starting next week we have a new Christmas piano course. This is suitable for beginners who would like to try out piano or those who maybe have a little bit of experience and would like to learn some Christmas tunes to add to their collection.
The 6 week course costs £70.
There are two classes available:
Monday 6-6.45pm Ages 11-13
Friday 6.15-7pm Ages 7-10

A few spots already gone so get in touch quickly if you would like a space :)


Just a reminder that we are off today and Monday. Back to lessons again on Tuesday.


We get to give out lots of certificates this week that arrived over the summer from exams taken before the break. Well done to all!


Hope everyone has a fantastic first day back at school, especially to all our preschoolers from last year who have started P1!
I can’t wait to hear how the summers have been. Today I’m back teaching and the printers been going all morning getting lots of new music ready.
Going to be a good day🙂


Today I get to introduce our new teacher Adele. Adele and I have been friends a long time and trained as music teachers together at university. She is a music teacher, runs fabulous Acorns baby and toddler classes in Alloway and is now teaching here on a Friday.
Such a treat to work with a friend. 🙂


New beginner piano class starting next Thursday for ages 10/12 at 3.30-4.15.
A 45 minute class where we will learn how to play along to all your favourite songs.
£35.50 a month
Only a few spaces left in this one so get in touch to book a slot.


We are so close to starting back, with students in the studio as of Friday! Today I went in to do a good clean and sort out. It’s looking ready 🙂
Still a few spaces left for all primary ages so get in touch to find out more (10/11 year olds class details coming soon).


A few more new classes, this time the Primary 1 classes. This is a fantastic start to a music journey and a chance to learn to play the piano with friends. Each class is 30 minutes and is £25 a month.
Get in touch to book a space.


It is almost time for another year to start and we have two new classes to add to the timetable! These will start when school goes back but have limited spaces already so message me if you would like to put a name down.
Our beginner classes are 45 minutes and £35.50 a month.


After an amazing weekend doing Encanto camps, we are now closed for Easter. Lessons start back Monday 18th.


I am so excited for this!


Just a reminder that we are off today until Tuesday. Lessons resume on Wednesday. 🙂


Some new classes starting next week for ages 7-10.
A few spaces left in each group.
Get in touch with any questions or to book a spot.


I love when pupils have been doing some composing at home and come in to show me.


Lessons are back! So excited to get started and hand out some new pieces.


Loved meeting the new preschool class today. They helped me decorate my piano and find the groups of black keys.


Starting next Tuesday! £35 for the 6 week winter themed block. A perfect age to introduce them to the piano through games and songs. Last few spots available, send me a message to book.


New preschool group being offered! A 6 week winter term of our 30minute music and piano exploration class, starting on November 9th.
Singing, moving, playing and discovering the piano.
Get in touch to book a space.
If you are keen but the day/time doesn’t work let me know as I will be adding another class


“The only thing better than singing is more singing.” - Ella Fitzgerald

Was very lucky to get involved with this. This bunch learnt the words very quickly, came up with their own actions and then sang their hearts out in nature. ❤️

Very excited that I got to wear my wellies to work this week. Loved doing a singing workshop at the forest school Little Acorns CIC. A super bunch of kids. 🙂


Working on melodic and harmonic intervals using Pianterval, a super game from Nicola Canton’s Vibrant Music Teacher.


Practice Tip:
Snail Speed! Start at a slow speed when working on a section. You can then speed it up once you are confident. 🙃


When this is your view when you finish work. How lucky am I to work right next to the beach!


Working on chord progressions and improvising in a mixed sibling class. They have used this progression to make an accompaniment to Ed Sheeran’s Pefect and are now going to use it as a base for a new composition.


Practice Tip:
Smaller sessions regularly is better than one long practice stretch.
