“I have been learning piano with Madeline as my teacher for almost 7 years now. She is extremely talented but also very patient. Her love and passion for music is contagious, and over the years I have found myself enjoying piano more and more. The learning style is very intuitive and understanding based, I have never felt confused while she is explaining even the more complex musical concepts. She builds your knowledge and practical skills up over the lessons, and always has a different approach/explanation if you are finding something difficult. She has been the greatest teacher and also a dear friend to me, and I believe that there is no student that wouldn’t absolutely love piano, given Madeline as their teacher.”
– Finley M


“I have been learning piano with Madeline for 1 1/2 years. Starting something new, for me, was daunting. The teacher will make the experience. The environment will make you feel at ease or not.

Madeline made me feel comfortable at the beginning of the journey and got me to focus on the steps within my ability; not where i thought I should be. Madeline is clearly a lifelong pianist, which as a student you are in awe of. It is her knack of breaking things down in the simplest ways that makes the experience fulfilling and enjoyable.

As a 43-year-old father, who took piano up during COVID, for something to do, I am still learning piano because of Madeline.” – Richard B


“Madeline is an amazing teacher. She is highly skilled and responds to my individual needs as a student. As a mature age student, I find Madeline’s teaching style calming, respectful, challenging and motivating. I ALWAYS look forward to my weekly lesson!” – Dr Jennifer F


“If you are looking to start music lessons, I highly recommend Madeline’s course at Stratford music. Madeline is an excellent teacher for both either kids and adult learners. She is patient, encouraging and supportive in her approach to teaching. Madeline has excellent knowledge of music theory and she is an exceptional musician. She puts a lot of thought and planning into developing her students skills and their love of music.” -Rani G


“I started learning piano with Madeline after I retired. Madeline structures my learning to suit my level of ability, and moves me forward each week, keeping my interest whilst increasing my knowledge. I really enjoy my lessons each week. Thank you Madeline!” Maxine W


“Madeline has been piano tutoring my son for over two & a half years. Her patience, knowledge & ability to understand his capability & level of understanding has enabled him to successfully progress onwards and upwards. She lives & breathes everything related to music, which has enabled him to grow musically too. Her extended effort organising interactive annual concerts, for all students at her school is an incredible & welcoming addition to tutoring.” Phillipa B
