Maryvonne is a Fellow of the Incorporated Society of Musicians. Here are her ABRSM exam results. The same successful pattern goes back many years before 2005 with no failures.
Maryvonne studied privately in France and the United Kingdom, and is a piano teacher of tremendous patience and experience. In spite of not commencing piano studies until the age of ten, her progress was so remarkable that after only two years, she was asked to assist her piano teacher with general music lessons for the other students, since she had already decided long before, that she wanted to be a pianist and piano teacher.
Having brought up a family Maryvonne has lots of understanding and empathy with young children, making her the ideal piano teacher for child beginners aged five upwards, taking them as far as they want to go. They all love her to bits and make good progress whilst having lots of fun. Some of them have become successful professional performing or teaching musicians.
Piano lessons are usually thirty minutes long until the child is older. Lessons are on an acoustic piano, but it's OK for the pupil to practise on a digital keyboard. Maryvonne also works very successfully with adult beginners who usually have a full hour's lesson.
Theory is taught as required within the lesson. If theory exams are taken, then extra lessons are needed. However, exams are not compulsory and the piano can be used to relax and counteract stress by students of all ages.

I have been taught the piano by Maryvonne for five years and the experience and knowledge I have gained has been truly inspirational. Not only have I progressed extremely well with the piano, but it has also helped me to relax, and I find my piano lessons very rewarding and fulfilling.

I really enjoy my piano lessons with Mrs. Evans who has taught me from when I was six years old, so I have learnt a lot from her. She's made the piano both relaxing and very rewarding. Since then I have passed some exams with distinction.

I have found Maryvonne's teaching a truly excellent foundation for my two sons aged four and six. They have progressed week after week into beautiful and focused pianists. I highly recommend this to anyone.

Alice enjoys her piano lessons with Mrs. Evans. She has progressed well. I like the fact that Alice is learning for pleasure rather than the pressure of exams.
