Experienced and qualified piano and music theory teacher

£40 per hour
    Palmers Green, North London

I am a Bulgarian-born, classically trained pianist with more than 8 years of international teaching experience as a piano and music theory teacher of students of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. I have also taught group music classes and primary and early years music classes for the past 3.5 years.

My main goal as a music educator is to instill a lifelong love of music in my students by giving them the knowledge and "tools" they need to be able to read, understand, and perform various musical styles.

My qualifications include Master Degree in Piano Performance (National Music Academy, Sofia - Distinction), DipABRSM in piano teaching, and PGCE (international) from Univeristy of Nottingham (Distinction). Please note that I am only able to offer piano and music theory lessons at your own place.

Tutoring / Teaching Experience

I began my full-time teaching career at a music institute in the city of Al Ain (United Arab Emirates) in 2010. During my 5 years as a teacher there, I've taught students of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. I have prepared students for ABRSM piano and theory exams, always with excellent outcome - they have achieved 100% pass rate with many merit and distinction marks. In 2014 I moved to Abu Dhabi where I worked as a music teacher in a primary school, and continued to teach piano privately.
I've recently relocated to London and am looking forward to continuing my teaching career here.

Miss. Pavlina Rangelova has given my daughter, Elnaya Pillian, weekly music lessons (theory and classical piano practice) since she was 12, from 2012 until 2017. She later also gave my son, Gerald Pillian, the same music lesson since beginning of 2015 until end of 2017 when she has to move from Abu Dhabi UAE, where we are living. From my close observation, Miss. Pavlina Rangelova teaches high standard piano technique with various methods she never fails to adjust for each students. Her deep understanding of various classical piano pieces is priceless. Her punctuality doesn't stop about time only, but also in preparing students for their exams or concerts/recitals. My children ABRSM-exam results convincingly prove that Ms. Pavlina Rangelove is a reliable music (piano) teacher. Both of my children have passed all their ABRSM practical and theory exams with distinction results, and only one time with merit. Every students are lucky if they cross path with her as their piano tutor.

Pavlina has taught my son for 1.5 years and he loved his piano lessons and gained valuable piano skills and music theory knowledge during the time with her. She is great with kids and she is very knowledgeable.
