Piano Lessons near Maidenhead

I am reopening my studio in September with social distancing measures in place.

Online lessons will still be an option.

I can use Skype, FaceTime, Zoom or WhatsApp. You will receive feedback by email with practice ideas for you next lesson. I also have fun games and activities that you can complete at home.

About Hilary Pugh 

I have been giving piano lessons at my home near Maidenhead for more than twenty five years. I teach children of all standards from beginner to Grade 8.

I adapt my lessons to the needs of each individual learner. Some like to work for exams and enjoy the structure of an annual challenge and making their way through the grade structure. Some just want to be able to play for fun. A few hope to make music their career.

I am able to adapt to a variety of different musical tastes. I have a comprehensive library of teaching material, classics and jazz.

Many of my pupils start their lessons when they are very young and stay with me until they leave school. Many recommend me to their brothers and sisters and to friends.

For very young children

I use teaching methods by Pauline Hall, as well as fun pieces and duets by Pam Wedgwood before moving on to more challenging pieces by a variety of composers.

With very young children I have recently started using Dogs and Birds 

Dogs and Birds is a fun way for very young children to start playing the piano using a range of colourful and well thought out materials.
