She individually adapts her method (that has elements of Suzuki and Dalcroze piano schools) and teaching plan to every new student and can prepare kids and teenagers for any of the ABRSM grades exams or live performances, plus make assessments and preparations for the entry into music colleges and scholarship programs.
