We’ve unexpectedly ended up with the morning off so we’ve treated ourselves to coffee and a cake for £3.50 in the cafe directly below the studio!
Definitely a great place to wait for piano lessons 🥰

[09/11/21]   Good morning,
Just a reminder that Xavana’s lessons are back to 10 past and 20 to the hour

L Garvin - Piano Tuner & Teacher

Lindsay studied at Chetham’s School of Music and has since continued her extensive training on both sides of the Atlantic to become a highly qualified and award-winning pianist, performer, teacher, and piano technician.

Lindsay has over 13 years and a wealth of experience in teaching the piano. She trained as a secondary school music teacher at masters level, with a Post Graduate Diploma in Education in Secondary Music, holds Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and passed with an Ofsted rating of ‘outstanding’.
Lindsay prides herself on her creativity when adopting a range of teaching techniques, dependant on the musical intent, unique ability, and age of each student. Having taught differentiated, whole class lessons in a secondary school, from home as well as peripatetically; lessons are tailored to the individual student’s needs and musical interests.
Her personal experience as a professional musician allows her to further motivate students, by ensuring each lesson and goal has a clear sense of purpose.
She is enthusiastic about students growth and is dedicated to staying abreast of conceptual innovations among educational practitioners, through her dedication to her ongoing studies.

A joy of collaborating with other musicians means Lindsay has gained invaluable industry experience as a pianist and accompanist for international Opera and Musical Theatre productions, festivals, examinations and session work in America and the UK.
Alongside her piano and teaching work, Lindsay has won numerous competitions and certificates on both the accordion and piano, including grade 8 piano (ABRSM), 1st place Senior Solo Piano Recital, 2nd place in the UK National Accordion Championships and a full scholarship at Chetham’s School of Music.

Before committing herself to become a professional piano teacher, Lindsay trained as a piano tuner and technician in Canada. She was selected for a place, as one of fourteen students worldwide, on the Piano Technology program at the Western University of Ontario and qualified as a Certified Piano Technician (CPT). This was the most prestigious and intensive course worldwide, holding testimonies from Steinway and Sons.

Lindsay enjoys a unique career working as both a piano tuner and piano teacher and is dedicated to sharing her passion and knowledge of both the piano and the accordion.

It is her ambition to build her piano tuning and teaching business whilst offering engaging and purposeful, tried and tested pedagogical methods that are in keeping with the national curriculum, Associated Board of the Royal School of Music, GCSE and A-Level exam boards.
