My Testimonials

We have found Anne-Marie to be a fantastic teacher for a new beginner (aged 7) and also as a sympathetic teacher for an older dad returning to the piano after a long break away from the piano. She is energetic and enthusiastic and both myself and my daughter have made great strides over the last few months. We really look forward to our weekly lesson.

Anne-Marie; Thank you for all of your help and guidance, I have learnt so many wonderful things from you and will cherish it always!

My son, aged 5 years, has been learning piano with Anne-Marie for 3 months now and I am tremendously impressed with her teaching. Having never played an instrument before, my son now plays simple tunes with confidence and joy. Anne-Marie understands the limits of a young child's cognitive skills and attention span, gently steering them in the right direction whilst they are having fun learning the piano. My son now practices every morning without me even asking him which I think is testament to how much he enjoys playing. She is very patient, supportive and encouraging and I cannot recommend her highly enough (and even just watching and listening, I am picking it up too!).

I have always wanted to play the piano and started learning fairly recently. I have made great progress since Anne-Marie started teaching me. I am always looking forward to the lessons which are a correct mixture of theory and practice. I am learning pieces in the style that I enjoy, classical as well as modern, like Adele pieces. I thoroughly enjoy playing and found it very relaxing and I am sure Anne-Marie’s enthusiasm, patience and encouragements have greatly contributed to this.

My son Nicholas absolutely adores his piano lessons with Anne-Marie. She makes lessons fun so that he enjoys learning as well as wanting to practise in between lessons to show Anne-Marie his improvement. She has a gentle, calm and fun approach to teaching which my son thrives on.

Angela Beric

I am a mature student taking lessons with Anne-Marie. She has patiently skilful teaching methods and is able to adapt herself to my way of learning. She allows me to learn the piano pieces I want to learn but incorporates piece which gives me the skills to reach my goals. I could not ask for a better piano teacher to keep me motivated and excited about learning to play the piano.

Anne-Marie is teaching my teenage daughter on the piano in preparation for her grade 5 practical piano exam. We have found her to be very professional, encouraging and helpful in her approach. My daughter is enjoying the lessons and making good progress and will be fully prepared for the exam in January 2015. I recommend Anne-Marie as a teacher and wish her well in her career.

C. O’Brien

Having taken lessons from Anne-Marie for around 3 months now, I can already see a massive improvement in my playing. The actual lessons are always relaxed and very enjoyable, as she has a very warm and friendly approach to teaching. However, the information she passes on is invaluable to any aspiring pianist. I personally find that it is the little things, like how to finger a scale properly or nail a musical phrase being the most helpful; as you probably wouldn’t learn these things without a experienced professional to guide you. Highly recommended.

Jo Duncan

A great teacher with whom you can get along very well and take your piano playing to the next level!

She has very good tips and ideas to improve many different things and it is all done in an exciting way.

Nora Gutierrez

Anne-Marie has been teaching me piano for the last three months. I hadn't played before & was keen to learn, though as a mature pupil, nervous. I was put at ease straight away by Anne-Marie's calm & sympathetic approach. Her excellent teaching skills & methods had me playing small melodic pieces quite quickly & with her enthusiasm & dedication, coupled with my willingness to practice, I look forward to a future filled with piano playing.

Shirley Fowler

Anne-Marie has taught my son piano for 6 months as a complete beginner. Through patient, encouragement and positive reinforcement she led him from the discovery of middle C to recognisable tunes that he loves playing.

She is a gifted teacher and I recommend her to you unconditionally.
