One-to-one and group sessions
I offer in-person and online sessions for pianists of all levels of experience to support you in transforming your playing with Piano Portals. I offer a flexible approach to meeting your needs - weekly, fortnightly, monthly or ad hoc, according to your requirements at any particular time. Piano Portals sessions meet you where you are and empower you to meet your goals. The ultimate aim is to support you in becoming the expert on solving your own technical challenges and moving ahead with ease.
Piano teachers' clinics offer a respectful and focused group-learning environment. You address your own or your students' challenges one-to-one and observe similar principles at work in others' contexts. Discover transformational tools to facilitate your students' aims, whatever their musical interests.
You can book a Clinic/Performance combination for your colleagues, organisation or conference, where I collaborate with teachers to troubleshoot and transform challenges and also play myself (from a short, informal performance to a full-length concert).
