Having learnt piano as a kid and then as a young man, I started to take lessons with Beatrice some 20 years later. I cannot stress enough how fortunate I have been to be taught by such a talented artist who also happens to be a wonderfully gifted teacher. Beatrice breathes music and the lessons are a great pleasure from an artistic standpoint. I feel I learnt so much from her in a short amount of time about interpretation, nuances, phrasing, as well as understanding the pieces she teaches me. What is equally brilliant is that Beatrice employs a very good mix of exigence – thereby helping to go deep into pieces – and encouragement. It is a real privilege to be taught by her.
Beatrice is teaching Natasha grade 4 piano and in my view is a charming, dedicated and intelligent teacher. She has the important ability to make her lessons fun so that my daughter always looks forward to seeing her. I also feel that Natasha is getting a thorough grounding into how to play the piano properly without cutting corners. Beatrice has even filmed the correct finger positioning for Natasha to follow at home. I feel that we are in very good hands with Beatrice: I wish that I had had such a teacher when I was a young girl!
I have found Beatrice to be an excellent teacher. She understands how to motivate and create interest, and she has responded to my progress by increasing the difficulty as appropriate. Lessons are fun as well as demanding and I find that I am making good progress under her supervision.
Beatrice is teaching my 7 year old son for the last 18 months. He really enjoys his lessons with Beatrice and has made excellent progress. Whilst observing the lessons I have found that Beatrice has a fantastic rapport with my son and that he interacts well during the lesson.
Beatrice is an excellent piano teacher. The lessons are very interactive, Beatrice teaches in a way that is easy to understand. She de-constructs technical subjects and teaches them in bite-size chunks to make the subject easier to understand. Beatrice has recently started teaching my daughter (almost 4 years old) as well. She is a motivating influence and teaches in a way which captures and maintains my daughter’s concentration. The fact that my daughter and I are picking up the piano so quickly is testament to Beatrice’s teaching qualities.
