Newport Piano Teacher

Newport Piano Teacher Needed – I Can Help.

Need a Newport Piano Teacher?   Hello and a warm welcome to my website. My name is Linda Stevens and I am an experienced Piano Tutor based in the Maindee area, NP, South Wales. Music has always been an enormous part of my life and has given me immense enjoyment. I first began studying the piano at the age of nine and from the age of sixteen, have given piano instruction to both adults and children.

Newport Piano Teacher - Lindas Piano Tuition While completing my performer’s letters at University, I was asked to give lessons to foreign students.  As a teacher, I realised how much I enjoyed both teaching the piano and seeing how much my students enjoyed learning. Since then, I have been teaching the piano for many years. My current pupils range in age from as young as 6 up to 76 and I am familiar with the techniques that both need in order to succeed.

Over the years, I have given solo recitals at University and subsequently played for many theatre shows. I am also trained as an accompanist where I have had many experiences with vocalists and instrumentalists alike both for examinations and at Music Festivals. In my spare time, I am an organist in my local Newport church where I am regularly called upon to play for services, weddings and funerals.

With children in mind, I am CRB checked and currently teach Music as part of the National Curriculum in a local Newport area primary school.

My Piano Teaching Philosophy

I believe that first and foremost Music should give pleasure to those who study it and eventually, a sense of confidence and accomplishment in their own abilities to perform. Being able to play the piano is a life skill that, I believe, will never be wasted. I have never met anyone who has ever regretted taking lessons. Indeed, it is a valuable asset which can open many doors in life.

Although formal exams are not essential for good progress in pianoforte playing, I normally enter children (and adults) for public examinations with The Associated Board of the Royal School of Music. I pride myself in my consistently high success rates. I teach practical lessons up to Grade 8 and beyond and Music Theory up to Grade 5.

I have a number of local students who started with me at a young age and have gone on to achieve high standards in pianoforte playing. If you have an interest in the piano and would like to start lessons  then I would be delighted to help you reach your goal.  Alternatively, if you already have some knowledge of this instrument and would like to develop it further I would love to hear from you.
