Hilary Crawford Teaching


“Taking the Diploma course with Hilary has been one of the best decisions of my piano teaching career..it has given me belief in myself as a teacher, has given me confidence to explore my musical creativity and develop my own individual teaching methods. I now challenge myself more to find new ways of helping my pupils reach their full potential.”

“Over the 9 month course, Hilary encouraged me to try out new strategies which have resulted in my pupils enjoying their lessons more and being more engaged in their learning. Hilary also helped me develop my piano teaching business and the course has, without doubt, been beneficial to both my teaching and business skills. I would definitely recommend taking a Piano Teaching Diploma with Hilary.”

“Taking an Early Childhood Music Diploma with Hilary has given me confidence to extend my teaching practice to include early childhood music education. Over the last year of study, I have been equipped with new knowledge and encouraged to explore new teaching methods which have resulted in my own pre-school programme.”

“One of the things the Diploma Course taught me was how to fully analyse a piece and break it down into manageable chunks for students. I also enjoyed learning new methods of pre-instrumental teaching, and have successfully implemented several of these with my own students.”

“Taking a teaching Diploma course has helped me feel more confident in my teaching. It’s helped me think about how I teach and the methods I use, so the Diploma has been of great benefit to both me and my pupils. I would thoroughly recommend it to any teacher wanting a qualification to teach piano.”
