Private Piano Lessons in the comfort of your own home.

While maintaining the highest level of teaching and musical standards.
Lessons include piano, music theory, exam preparation.

As an experienced accompanist here, and abroad,
I am available to perform at private functions, weddings and other events.

Music theory

Learning music theory is one of the most important things a musician can do as it helps them to not only become better performers, but also have a better understanding of the music they are playing and hearing.

Sight Reading

Sight-reading by definition is the reading and performing of a piece of written music that the performer has not seen before. It is also referred to as prima vista, which translates to “at first sight,”


In music education, solfège is a method used to teach students pitch and sight singing. At Piano Boca we teach solfège using the Kodály Method at every level of music education, from beginner through to advance.

Exam Preparation

Prior to any upcoming examination we help our students choose suitable pieces for the exam and make sure they have selected the right combination from the correct syllabus.
