"I have been learning the piano with Ivy since January. As a mature student with no previous musical training I have been inspired by her sensitivity and encouragement. I am delighted to be learning a new language and taking a new and exciting path with Ivy as my guide."
Mum to Faye (4 years old)
"Ivy's been a brilliant teacher for our daughter. She's only 4 and Ivy already has her getting the hang of reading music and recognising the notes. She's really enjoying herself and really proud of what she's doing so far!"
"I started playing the piano when I was 5 years old, I played for roughly 5 years but was so incredibly uninspired and scared of my first teacher that nothing I learnt ever stuck in my head and my fear of the piano was something I believed permanent. However, as I moved to Uni I decided to give it another go.
So I found Ivy's website. I contacted her and immediately as we planned a first, free of charge, trial lesson at her home I could see I would feel very comfortable around her and with her teaching methods. After the first lesson my enthusiasm was immense, Ivy managed to make me feel unbelievably at ease with the piano, engaged with the music, all whilst pushing and challenging me at the same time. She very much took interest in what I wished to play and at what pace I wanted to go.
She plays beautifully and will be able to answer any questions you may have about the piano, her passion really shines through and is extremely contagious. I recommend anyone who (like I was) is interested in starting from scratch to get in touch with Ivy. You won't regret it."
