First of all you need either a keyboard or a piano at home to practice on. Make sure if you have a keyboard, that it is 'touch sensitive'. This means that it increases in volume depending on how hard you press the key. It needs to be no less than 6 octaves and have a proper stand and pedal. If you have a piano, then make sure it's tuned to pitch. I can help your with that.
You will need to set up a Zoom account on line. I will then send you an ID & password to enter my screen. If you decide on a 60 minute lesson, I will come out of the lesson and immediately return after 30 mins as there is a charge after 45 mins for the host.
I have recommended my favourites if you are a beginner. So check out my info under MUSICBOOKS. Bring with you a nice sharp pencil and some manuscript paper/book. I will email you notes every week as a recap of the lesson and to help remind you of what you are working on.
I look forward to meeting you
Somethings are obviously more important on your checklist than others and this will develop as your grow in confidence and see what you want. I hope this info has helped give you a head start in knowing if you want to pursue lessons, whether it be with me or someone else. I wish you all the best on your journey.
FREE Trial Lesson
If online tuition in your own home may seems a little daunting at first, why don't you try a FREE lesson. If you decide that online suits you, but you are concerned about the technology, I am here to help. A FREE trial lesson enables you to discuss the set-up and I can answer any questions you have.
You will require a Webcam & Stand to attach it to. The Amazon links for the equipment I use, are at the bottom of this page. Watch my videos for more ideas. You will also need headphones to reduce any distortion or delay with the sound quality.
Instrument & Music Stand
Stand + Pedal for a Keyboard
Stand & Webcam or phone App + Headphones
Music Books (which we will discuss) and a stand for your music.

Lauren is a fantastic piano/keyboard teacher. I had a bit of music knowledge, from singing in other bands and could play a few basic chords, but nothing more. Lauren is teaching me everything from theory to chords, to song writing and I’m loving it. Her knowledge is incredible but she teaches in a way that makes it so easy to understand. She asked me what I wanted to learn and how I wanted to do it and has been so accommodating. Each lesson we do some theory and then either switch to something else or carry on with theory, depending on how I’m feeling that day. I am so glad I started these lessons, it gives me a creative outlet and even if I’m tired at the start, I finish the lesson feeling really refreshed.
