Extremely pleased with this term's Piano exam results:

Sheena (adult) started lessons from scratch in January this year and scored a Distinction (96%) in her Initial exam ๐ŸฅณAlready prepping for Grade 1 ๐ŸŽน๐ŸŽน๐ŸŽน

11 year old E also passed her Initial exam with Distinction with 91% ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ She was so worried she wasn't going to pass but ended up with top marks in 3 sections of the exam!

13 year old L smashed her Initial exam with a brilliant Merit ๐Ÿ‘

Sister & Brother (T&L) ages 11 & 12 passed Grade 2 with a Pass and Distinction ๐Ÿ†
They also passed their Grade 1 earlier this year and are hoping to take Grade 3 just before Christmas ๐ŸŽ„ That'll be 3 exams in one year which is pretty extraordinary ๐Ÿ™

T&L first came to me roughly a year ago and although they could play a few tunes, they had been taught (online) to play the keys by numbers ๐Ÿ™‰ so had to learn how to read notation sharpish. Mission accomplished ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Onwards and upwards ๐Ÿ™Œ

Thoroughly deserved as she worked her little sock off. Onwards and upwards for this young lady ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ

Brilliantly well done to Hannah & Anna on their recent Piano exams.

This was Anna's 1st ever music exam and Hannah is just turning into a pro. It was in fact only her 2nd music exam but just like last time, she only went and aced it.

Clever girls ๐Ÿฅ‡๐Ÿฅ‡



Just had some great news.
2 lovely girl students of mine, 11 & 12, both scored ๐——๐—ถ๐˜€๐˜๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป๐˜€ in their Piano exams.

Amy took Grade 1 and achieved ๐Ÿต๐Ÿฏ% ๐Ÿฅณ

Sophie scored a WHOPPING ๐Ÿต๐Ÿต% in her first ever Piano Exam (Initial) ๐Ÿฅณ

No more having to find a space on the road.

Plenty of room for up to 4 cars.

Just need to lay top soil in the borders and add some colourful shrubs and flowers ๐Ÿ’

Beginners through to Advanced. All ages welcome.


Happy New Decade to all of you lovely people.
I wish you love, warmth, health & happiness in 2020 ๐Ÿ˜˜

Thank you for tolerating Bo Bo's naughty behaviour at times. She did like to occasionally "sing" along to your children's/your Piano playing ๐ŸŽน. Other times her snoring was so loud it was a job to even hear the Piano. Another favourite trick of hers was to try and escape on your departure and generally being a cheeky monkey.

Thank you most of all for your kindness you showed Andy & I when sadly it was her time to go, October 20th.
Still sorely missed.

Love from Linda # # #

This is one way of how to brighten up a miserable wet and windy day.



Well done to 10 year old Amy for learning the accompaniment to John Lennon's Imagine duet so quickly.
Super impressed โœŒ


Ok, so I've spent a really really long time arranging this well known children's programme theme tune into a Piano duet. Not quite finished yet, but anyone want to take a listen and guess what it is?
Am dying to give you clues but it would give away to answer instantly.
Sorry Marianne, but you're not allowed to guess as you walked in on M being my little guinea pig trying this out yesterday.


I have some Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday morning available slots ideal for adults at the moment.
A complementary 30 minute lesson for anyone interested in learning the Piano.
Beginners right through to advanced all welcome.
