Rachel is a fantastic teacher: knowledgeable, patient, friendly and is great at pacing lessons to suit the speed at which I’m picking up concepts. I am always comfortable in a lesson as well as constantly improving.

Rachel is a superb teacher who I cannot recommend highly enough. She is extremely reliable and we have seen real progress in our daughter’s playing thanks to her. She has a lovely relationship with our daughter too.

Enhancing creative skills is at the core of any music lessons that I teach. Music is not just about playing the right notes, it’s about communication, self-expression and enjoyment. I have taught music in many different settings with both adults and children, from individual instrumental tuition to larger composition workshops.

I currently offer lessons for Piano, Violin, Voice, Composition and Music Theory. My rates are £15.00 for 30 minutes or £25.00 for an hour. As I am committed to providing affordable lessons, I also offer group lessons at a reduced price per pupil and discounts for families with more than one pupil (child or adult!) being taught by me. If you are interested in this, please get in touch for more details.

Below you can see a variety of works that were created in my group sessions with children in schools.

The Growth Mindset song was written by children at St Thomas of Canterbury Primary School to encourage other children to use a Growth Mindset.

The children at STOC Music Club wrote and performed their own graphic scores.

E-Safety Rocks! encourages other children to stay safe online.
