Helen Macpherson


I have had over 30 years experience as both a classroom teacher and itinerant piano teacher in both Primary and Secondary schools. In my early teaching years I have been involved with choirs, musical productions, night school classes and conducting combined schools music festivals.

I also run a private piano teaching studio with students having a wide range of ages and abilities. The students I teach can be learning ‘just for fun’ or for exams and competitions.

My passion is to see students develop a lifetime love of music and create skills to support this.
