“Thank you for inspiring me!”ND
“You were a complete inspiration to me, and I loved my piano lessons. Thank you so much for the amazing work we did in theory in which I passed with 77, I never thought that I could.”VV
“Roberta is a teacher of exceptional qualities – she has formulated excellent and positive relationships with all her pupils and staff within the department. The qualities of her teaching and administrative duties are of a very high standard. Roberta ensures that her pupils are offered an all-round musical education through her piano teaching – she is aware of the needs of the pupils and develops their needs accordingly, whilst always keeping within professional boundaries. Roberta maintains high standards in her teaching.”Director of Music, Streatham and Clapham High School, (2004).
“As a parent, I have found Roberta to be an engaging as well as inspirational teacher. Her lessons are well structured and tailored to suit the individual. Her communication with the student in terms of expectations and discussing short / long term goals help to ensure that progress is consistent. Regular end of term performance concerts help to build confidence in a relaxed informal environment. Under Roberta’s tutoring, my daughter has come a long way in terms of technique, understanding the finer nuances of different composers and appreciation of piano playing as a whole. Roberta is a warm and caring person who gives her best as a teacher. ”Fiona D’Silva
“5 stars out of 5 stars. Roberta’s lessons are always really engaging and I love every minute of them! Roberta is able to push me to get the best out of me, which I really like. I have high ambitions for the future and Roberta is able to adapt her teaching style to fit my needs. I would certainly recommend Roberta to anyone who wishes to learn the piano ;-)”Shayna D’Silva
“Roberta was recommended to us by a very accomplished piano teacher. We feel very blessed to have found such a wonderful teacher who is also a coach, motivator and friend. Our girls benefit not only from Roberta’s technical knowledge, patience and obvious love of music but also from the broader musical community that she’s part of. Not to mention they get to play on her beautiful Steinway each week!”Tracy Mair
