Jo has been teaching for 15 years and has pupils from the age of 6 up to 83! Some – especially her adults – are learning for fun and personal pleasure, but she also teaches for the associated Board exams (practical and theory). Although most of her pupils are beginner to intermediate standard, she also has a pupil who is due to take her Grade 8 practical this winter, and recently helped someone achieve their grade 8 theory. Jo believes in teaching at the pace of the pupil and has been told that she has the patience of a saint!
Jo was taught piano by Christine Pembridge when she was head of piano at Roedean School and took her grade 8 piano exam during her first year reading for a degree in Psychology. She aims to combine the classical teaching tradition with an appreciation of, and love for, all musical styles and genres.
