Hi, my name is Karina Knowles and I offer private Piano and Singing tuition. I teach from home, where I have plenty of space and all my resources to hand. Beginners usually start with lessons of half an hour. I tailor lessons to suit the individual pupil and learning is fun and enjoyable. I have been teaching piano and singing for ten years. I have many pupils who are working through their Grade exams with ABRSM and other pupils who prefer a more relaxed approach. I have 100% successful pass rate with pupils who have sat their grade exams. My youngest pupil is 4yrs old and doing brilliantly!
If you are looking for lessons in a fun and relaxed environment, then come and have a trial period. I recommend 3 initial lessons to build a relationship and find out if you've picked your instrument.

This recommendation was made verbally by a parent speaking to the KalliKids team and confirmed in writing.
My daughter has piano and singing lessons with Karina and we are really pleased with her progress - she had singing lessons elsewhere before but she has learnt so much more with Karina. Karina is very friendly and we are more than comfortable with Madeleine attending lessons in her home. Madeleine really enjoys the lessons and, even though she gets homework every week, this doesn't cause her any stress! Payment is really simple as we pay once a term online. I can't fault anything with the service provided.
Initially I thought that Amelie would be too young but Karina has really tailored the class to her age. She takes a lot of time and is extremely patience and nurturing, The class is really fun and enjoyable. She also supports me in teaching me ways of helping Amelie at home with little tasks. She loves showing her brother what she has learnt, it really boosts her confidence. I know she loves it as she didn't want to leave the last lesson!
The girls have been seeing Karina for singing lesson once a week for quite a while now. I met Karina when she was a teacher at the girls school and was so happy that she was continuing through private lessons as she is genuinely amazing at what she does. She really motivates, and encourages them and keeps their focus with her genuine love for music which shines through with her teaching. The girls don't see it as a chore but great fun and they thoroughly enjoy learning new skills. I genuinely wouldn't change a thing about the lessons. Karina has such a great way with the children - she is able to relate to them and is really encouraging. Karina provides a professional and friendly service that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone.
I have two girls who have worked with Karina, Becky, aged 13, has been working with Karina for the last five years, at school with singing and music, and also privately on the piano, gaining Grade 3.
Amy, age 15, has worked with Karina in her evening choir class.
Karina has always shown professionalism in her work and brought an enjoyable and relaxed atmosphere to her lessons.
