My name is Emma Palmer and I teach the piano to chidren and adults from 4 to 104yrs old. Whilst I specialise in the teaching of young children, gradually taking them through the ABRSM grades as they get older.
I also teach adults and anyone who wants to learn for all sorts of reasons
Instrument playing is a life long hobby. It is a wonderful way of relaxing and expressing one's self but is also a way to meet people and socialise.
For children it teaches, in a very immediate way, that practise makes perfect and hard work reaps rewards.
The piano is a particularly great instrument to learn as it provides the player with a knowledge and feel for harmony and an ability to read both clefs- which make it an excellent way to spring forward to other instruments very easily when older.
