Ross Piano School

Hello, my name is Sam (Samantha when I'm in trouble). As a child I discovered that practicing the piano was a great way to get out of doing the washing up...and also...I loved it.

I studied piano and harpsichord with Rosemary Braga, becoming a church organist at 12 years old and a choral director at 18.

At university, my first degree enabled me to develop performance, composition, and conducting skills. I then qualified as a teacher and continued my professional development with post-graduate courses: for teaching students with autism, ABRSM teaching, and I am currently working on my performance diploma. I have been assessed as outstanding by OFSTED.

I believe in music for all and I offer a scholarship programme for students and families. Music must not be for the elite few; it is in every heartbeat, in every footstep, for all humankind.

For the past twenty years I have directed choirs for pleasure and competitive purposes. We have been able able to enjoy the camaraderie (and awards!) that this has brought.

Available lessons based in Phocle Green include in-person safe lessons and/or lessons via zoom for beginner to Grade 8, Grade 5 theory, GCSE music.
