Gill Hale Piano TuitionGill teaches piano and singing at her studio in Chalford Hill to pupils of all ages and abilities. At present her youngest pupil is six and the oldest is over sixty.

Once a child has expressed the desire to learn the piano, shows sufficient concentration to absorb ideas presented in the lesson, and understands the concept of practise, then he or she is ready. For some children this may be as young as six whilst others may not be ready until the age of nine or ten But it's never too late, either. Her oldest piano pupil didn't start until he was into his sixties. Her fees are £25 an hour for adults and £24 an hour for children.

Gill has had an excellent record with a 100% pass rate for pupils taking ASSOCIATED BOARD EXAMS.
