If you have ever had a question about teaching piano technique, style, phrasing, fingering or pedalling that would benefit from a one-to-one discussion with an expert you need to book a short consultation with Professor Réamonn Keary, co-presenter of the RIAM Key Skills. Questions do not have to relate to RIAM grade exams and no question is too basic!

Learning Outcomes

Piano teaching can sometimes be an isolated business that can leave teachers s without a peer or ‘sounding board’ to chat through how to progress a particular problem, student or technique, or even leads some teachers to question their ability and skills. These roadblocks or lack of self-confidence often requires just the support and a few helpful tips of an expert in the field. The RIAM hopes that having access to one of our most experienced teachers will be a valuable resource to piano teachers around the country.

Prerequisites

Ability: Teaching piano to any level

Age: 18+

A truly wonderful teacher, and for those of us lucky enough to interact with him, the payoff is enormous." (A. McDonald)

 

"I enjoyed this very much, I had a list of queries to ask Raymond and every one were answered. He also gave me great tips on teaching and just down to earth chat. I would highly recommend booking this if it comes up again. Very informative. (J. Geary McCall)

 

"This was a wonderful opportunity to get some invaluable advice from Professor Keary.
