Private Tuition

This is tailored to the level of the individual and can be booked for anything from one hour to several days, either in person or online. A pianist can be booked on request. One-to-one tuition is typically more intense than a group workshop and so can be invaluable for students who wish to address specific technical issues. Bespoke day or weekend courses are also bookable on request with structure and resources tailored to the organization and students involved.
To discuss private lessons or a bespoke course please contact Denise via the Contact Form.
