Robin has been teaching piano for over 30 years, privately and in Junior and Secondary schools. He studied externally at Victoria College of Music, gaining their licentiate and associate diplomas and then at London College of Music gaining their associate diploma. He is also an organist on a locum basis. Robin played double bass in Wootton Bassett Orchestra for many years and briefly was their conductor. With his wife, Janet, they started the Dauntsey Vale Chamber Group, a string group playing for schools and local charities. He has also accompanied students for their instrumental exams.
Janet qualified as a Primary School teacher at Dundee College of Education. She also has over 20 years experience teaching piano and cello privately from 4 to adults. She has played cello in various orchestras and accompanies her cello students in their exams.
Lessons are available for a half, three quarters or a whole hour in our studio in Boness. They are also willing to come out to two or more students in one area. Both teach piano/keyboard from grades 1 8 with ABRSM or Trinity working with students of all ages. Jazz piano has only 5 grades, Janet teaches cello to grade 6, and Robin teaches double bass to grade 5. All lessons are on a one-to-one basis. This has the advantage over group lessons as it enables them to work at each individual students pace with the potential for faster development.
