Information about Rosa
Currently giving Skype lessons.
I am a musician, teacher and workshop facilitator currently studying an MA in Music in Development at the School of Oriental and African Studies. I studied a BA in English and Music at the University of Leeds.
I am interested in a wide variety of music, and my musical career reflects this. As well as teaching, I am a professional musician, and I play the piano and percussion in a variety of bands and projects. I studied classical piano up to degree level, where I focused on piano performance for the final part of my degree. For my final recital, I explored a range of repertoire on the piano, examining the dynamic capabilities of the piano. For this recital, I played music by Schubert, Debussy, Lachenmann and Davidovsky, exploring the variety of sounds and textures available on the piano. I am also interested in jazz, having played it since a young age, and I have played piano and percussion in various jazz bands, including Gertie and her Gaiety, Phemme Freché and the Freie Universität Big Band. I have explored the uses of percussion in world and experimental music in a variety of exciting projects and bands. Recently I have also begun learning the bass and DJing.

Experience: I have nine years experience teaching the piano, and have taught the instrument to students of all ages and levels. I tailor my lessons to suit the personalised needs of each student. I provide fun, interactive and engaging lessons customised to the student`s ability and desires. As a current student myself, I am fully aware of the benefits, encouragement and inspiration a tutor can provide. I am happy to provide guidance through the grade systems (ABRSM and Trinity), in which I have a 100% distinction rate. I am also comfortable in coaching students through school-based qualifications, an area I have experience in.
