I was very lucky, I was born into a family who owned a piano.
From as early as I can remember I was mesmerised by the sound.
I just wanted to learn how to make sense of all those keys!
I finally had my first proper lessons aged 9, and soon accompanied school assembly with simple hymns. Terrified but thrilled.
I just wanted to play more, and play better.
Life got in the way and lessons resumed again as a teenager for a couple of years, and I passed my ABRSM grade 5.
I dreamed of going to music college, owning a grand piano, and one day becoming a piano teacher... but life again got in the way.
After a lifetime of an unfulfilling career, I have finally returned to
my first love...the piano.
I began lessons again myself a couple of years ago, passing my ABRSM grade 5 theory, and grade 7 piano (some 30 years since my last exam!) and I'm currently working on my grade 8.
I may never get to music college. I will never become a performer.
What I can do though, is pass on my passion for the piano.
Whatever your age, if you have EVER wanted to learn to play piano...
give it a try - the first lesson is FREE!
