About me and what I do
Piano , Keyboard and Theory
I have been actively involved in music since school and later played in Pop groups , Function bands, Rock bands and Duo,s where I gained many years of experience in live performance and studio work , at that time I also successfully studied piano , church organ and music theory with the A.B.R.S.M. and L.C.M. I then decided on a career as music teacher so I attended the appropriate courses with Victoria University Manchester and the London College of Music where I qualified as a music tutor in 1994 and began teaching in Schools and Colleges with Tameside Music Services as well as my own private practice in and around Stockport and the Greater Manchester area . I hold a current DBS Enhanced Certificate and I am a member of the European Piano Teachers Association and the Royal Society of Musicians of Great Britain. I continue to keep up with the latest trends and developments in education and teach students of all abilities and ages from beginners to advanced , my prices are competitive and I tailor the lessons to suit their personal aspirations where my main aim is for students to learn in a relaxed , friendly and professional environment . If students wish to take exams at the appropriate time in the future then I use A.B.R.S.M. or L.C.M. boards.
I also prepare students for their GCSE and Btec practical work and I am an adviser and assessor for The Duke of Edinburgh award scheme.
Students can either have lessons at my address or I can make visits to their home or remotely via the internet . Give me a call on 07758192824 for a friendly 'no obligation' chat.
Yours Sincerely Shirley Greenwood
