Singing, Piano & Violin Lessons with Laura

I teach Singing, Piano and Violin lessons to all ages and levels to students who live in and around Chichester, Arundel and the six villages.

I have been teaching for 12 years and in each lesson aim to provide a fun yet challenging enviroment for all students so that they can fully achieve their potential.

I am qualified with a BA Honours Degree in music, and have grade 8 in violin, piano and singing. I perform throughout the UK at special events and weddings and I teach both violin and singing for West Sussex County Council at schools throughout the borough. I am CRB checked by the WSCC and I teach a wide range of students of all ages and abilities.

I believe that all lessons should be fun and engaging and aimed at developing the potential of each individual student.

'Music is what life sounds like.'
-Eric Olson

Piano Lessons

'The notes I handle no better than many pianists. But the pauses between the notes, that is where the art resides!'
-Artur Schnabel

When teaching piano lessons I use a fantastic series of piano guides that are fun, colourful and helpful to students, especially when they practise at home and need useful tips and reminders.

Singing Lessons

'The singer has everything within him. The notes come out from his very life. They are not materials gathered from outside.'
-Rabindranath Tagore

In singing lessons I help each student by using a wide variety of vocal material. Also if singing lessons are the only form of musical instrument, then I recommend the student learns music theory as well so that they can fully understand the fundementals behind the songs.


Violin & Viola Lessons

'Violin playing is a physical art with great traditions behind it'
-Vanessa Mae

During violin lessons I use another wonderful series that really helps the student engage with the music that they are learning. Also in each book there is a CD that helps practice at home to become extra fun and challenging.

Tuition Material

General piano lessons book
Ages 5-7 ‘Tunes For Ten Fingers’ - Pauline Hall series
Ages 8 – adult ‘Piano Time’ - Pauline Hall series

General violin lessons book
Ages 5- adult ‘Fiddle Time’ – Pauline Hall series

Singing lessons
I use a wide variety of material for all my singers depending on their needs. I do focus mainly on Jazz and Popular styles, though I can help students who prefer a more classical approach.
 

Practice

It is extremely important that all children and adults create a regular routine for practice at home so there is a constant rate of improvement. Parents have to help their children keep to their practice routines.
 


Tuition Fees

All lessons are £15 for ½ hour or £28 per hour - If you want to learn more than one instrument, I can do this in an hour lesson but this will depend on availability.
