About Me

Hello! My name is Crystal. I am a Music Therapist and piano teacher with over 8 years of experience working with families with children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) and gifted children. I found that the key of facilitating children to learn music is to nurture their passion for music and to encourage their creativity. As such, my teaching approach includes music composition and improvisation along side with pieces and scales (if that's what you want!). I take pride in developing good relationships with all families I worked with. I host annual concerts for the kids to raise funds for local charities. I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

My Experience

I have extensive experience working with children with SEN and/or physical disabilities at SEN schools, mainstream schools, hospices and in private homes. With over 8 years of experience in music teaching, I am very familiar with the ABRSM and Trinity exam syllabus. With that said, I also believe in encouraging children to express themselves freely with music. I tend to include a short improvisation at the end of each lesson. I have found that children always enjoy that!

Crystal is a very talented, patient & extremely dedicated piano teacher.
She has been teaching my 10 year old son for a few months now, he is absolutely loving his sessions and has made a huge amount of progress in such a short time. Crystal makes each lesson fun, engaging and exciting, my son cannot wait to show us his new skills after each session!
We would highly recommend Crystal to anyone wishing to take any kind of music lessons she is a fantastic teacher, we are very lucky to have found her!
