“Become the expert in your own coordination - this is absolutely on the nail."

Supporting your explorations

Please do be in touch for a chat if Piano Portals speaks to you. I love to connect with like-minded pianists of any level of experience.

Piano Portals offers you the tools to become a self-sufficient pianist - the expert on your own playing technique, through deepening self-awareness.

I offer Skype 1-2-1 sessions to a limited number of pianists with a holistic outlook. They're like piano lessons, but focused on supporting you in your independent Piano Portals journey and meeting your aims. They help to troubleshoot and transform your playing from a Piano Portals perspective. I offer a flexible approach to meeting your needs - sessions can be weekly, fortnightly, monthly or ad hoc, according to your needs. I also offer in-person 1-2-1 sessions in South West England and London.

Piano Portals sessions meet you where you are and empower you to meet your goals. They're respectful and non-prescriptive. I support you in becoming the expert on solving your own technical challenges and moving ahead with ease.

Group Piano Clinics offer a respectful and focused group-learning environment. You bring your own challenges, address them one-to-one and observe similar principles at work in others' contexts. They're not about imposing interpretive dogma. They're about transforming your playing through creative solutions.

Book a Group Piano Clinic or Clinic/Performance combination for your piano club, conference or organisation, where I collaborate with pianists to troubleshoot and transform challenges and can also play myself (from a short, informal performance to a full-length concert).
