Biography and Education

Melissa is a classically trained pianist from Oxford and holds a Bacherlor's degree in Music from the University of Kent, where she specialised in piano performance, whilst also studying harmony. Prior to University she studied privately at the Royal College of Music with international concert pianist and Professor of Piano, Gordon Fergus-Thompson, with whom she still works with on a regular basis. Growing up, Melissa was an active participant at the Oxford Music Festival, where she regulary entered competitions, winning on several occasions. 


Melissa loves to share her passion for playing and love for music with her pupils. She follows the goals and needs of her students, whether that be playing for pleasure, working towards exams, festivals, competitions, or general performance opportunities. 

Melissa believes that a well rounded approach and good understanding of music is key to being a good musician. Whilst she fully supports her pupils working towards grades, many of whom have passed with high marks, she encourages them to also have a wide reportoire and to also play for enjoyment. Melissa believes that technique is a vital part of any pianist's journey and incorporates this into her lessons from day one. 


After working for many schools in and outside of London for a number of years, Melissa decided it was time to start her own piano school where she could combine her experience of teaching and knowledge with her pupils. Melissa has a lot of experience tutoring pupils of all ages from as young as 5 through to adult learners.

Current Projects 

Besides teaching, Melissa is constantly developing her own reportoire and  is currently working towards her ABRSM piano performance Diploma, as well as studying advanced theory.
