Resources | Cate Gaffney Piano


I draw on an extensive range of publications and digital resources to enable a bespoke teaching/learning programme to be developed based upon the age, experience, needs and interests of the individual.

Frequently used series include:

  • John Thompson’s Adult Piano Course
  • The Classic Piano Course (Barratt)
  • Michael Aaron Piano Course
  • Piano Time (Hall)
  • Piano Adventures: Accelerated and Adult (Faber & Faber)
  • Joining the Dots (Bullard)
  • Improve Your Sight Reading (Harris)
  • Classics to Moderns (Agay)

Pupils with more experience can enjoy a rich array of progressive works from the standard repertoire.

I make use of digital resources such as recordings and apps to diversify the lessons, and include ideas on ways to use and enjoy them during home practice. Video and audio-recording equipment is available to encourage discussion and evaluation of playing/performances in the lesson.
