Down to the nitty gritty...
A bit about lessons...
Sarah accepts students for formal lessons aged 6 and upwards, all abilities - just a willingness to learn and put in some time at home between lessons. Younger children do benefit from parental help at home, even if it's just a reminder each day to sit down for a few minutes!
Fees: Payable at the start of each lesson, or by BACS Transfer at the start of each month.
Fees 2018 - 2019:
£16.00 per 30 minute lesson
£22.00 per 45 minute lesson
£32.00 per 60 minute lesson
Family discounts are offered depending on the number of learners within the family. Please contact for more information.

Age 3.5 upwards
Sarah is trialling a new approach called 'Wunderkeys' for little ones, beginners who are preschool age. (Currently a work in progress with her own son!) Please get in touch if you think your preschooler might fancy having a go - learning through lots of singing, games and general silliness!
Ages 3.5 upwards
Lessons are 30 minutes long, including recap and packing up time. Sarah usually teaches from home in Lancaster, but is willing to travel to families further afield. Please enquire for more details.
A bit about exams...
Sarah is very happy to teach just for fun, but experience tells us that MOST people do much better with a goal to aim for. ABRSM exams can be a lot of fun, and Sarah has successfully guided many adults through annual exams.
They aren't for everyone though, so please don't let this put you off. She has taught many a retiree in my time that just enjoys a tinkle on the ivories!
