David Crow

Piano teacher in Peacehaven


About me
Hello there

My name is David Crow and I currently reside in Peacehaven. After leaving teacher training college I spent 35 years teaching music and general subjects to pupils between the ages of 7 to 13. I gained two piano diplomas an A R C M in piano teaching and an L T C L in piano performance. These I gained under John Lill after receiving a scholarship to Trinity College of music to study for a year.

Having established myself within the teaching profession I then taught the piano at my home and at the Priory school in Banstead on a Saturday morning. My final teaching post was at Denmead Prep School where I taught many piano students until I retired. After this I became their resident piano teacher. I feel taking the ABRSM grades is very important as it shows a continued progress to both students and parents alike. Over the years I have had many many successes including a few Grade 8 passes.

I am happy teaching children and adults alike. Over the years I have had several adults who have taken their grades and passed. My teaching methods are both friendly and encouraging. It is very important to make people relax and basically have fun on the way. My studio boasts of a Yamaha grand and a Casio electric keyboard.
