Bespoke Piano Lessons Program for the Highly Sensitive
* Together we define the best program of learning for you or your child
* This program may include collaboration with a health practitioner, flower essences, practical astrology if you wish
* Option of including in-depth guidance on navigating the world as a sensitive person, let me know what you are struggling with
* This program is especially suited to children whose parents are not highly sensitive and struggle to understand their child
* I become a kind of conduit for you and your child
* Your child learns the traditional solid musical knowledge and builds technical skill and proficiency in playing the piano
* Inherent in my way of approaching the learning of music is to nurture their natural musicality and develop their vocabulary of expressing their feelings through the music
* I work with the Taubmann Approach which is about the health of the body and playing with the natural alignment and choreography of the hand.
* The piano becomes a place of solace, soothing and self-care.
* For you the parent, you hear a child in tune with their feelings (vital for wellbeing) and expressing themselves through their playing
* You will know how they are by how they play the piano. Parents tell me they love listening to their child play the piano
* Highly sensitive children are often particularly suited to playing the piano. If so, it meets a deep need and becomes a vital part of their personal support system

I am in my early 60’s, and my mother was diagnosed with Alzheimers with Vascular Dementia in 2018, so I can more than begin to relate to what you are experiencing, and, I’m keen to help you take good care of yourself. As simply as possible.
We collaborate, and I am happy to collaborate with your health practitioner, to devise a suitable program for you.
Lessons are for 60mins at least once a week
Daily practise at home will significantly move you towards your dream.
