Piano Lesson

Aletheia Woodhouse MMus

Music Consultant

I am a music tutor, performer, researcher and coordinator. I personally provide piano, violin and music theory tuition and I can advise on the best strategy to nurture your child's specific musical interests. 

Key to my approach as a music teacher, researcher, a musician and public intellectual is to provide others with the fundamental tools to start their own journey of self-discovery and success in whatever they wish to pursue.

I seek to inspire and educate and I champion the fostering of self-empowerment, growth mindset and autonomous thinking in my students.

Aletheia Woodhouse MMus

Key to my approach as a music teacher, researcher, a musician and public intellectual is to provide others with the fundamental tools to start their own journey of self-discovery and success in whatever they wish to pursue. In my opinion and experience, central to this is personalised teaching methods that are unique to each student and develop their minds in ways most beneficial to THEM.


Aside from my vast musical expertise and teaching experience, I bring with me a wealth of knowledge on personal development and mindfulness techniques that prime human minds to be aware, curious and grateful for all that we have. I inspire others to have confidence and see strength in their unique qualities, always aware that our individual strengths enable us to function better as a collective.

 

Bio

The Full Story

Currently, I am studying for a PhD in Musicology focussing on music and psychoanalysis at Royal Holloway, University of London; here, I attained a First Class Bachelor of Music Degree with Honours, as well as a Masters in Advanced Musical Studies, with merit. My principal performance study at Royal Holloway has been piano under the direction of Matthew Stanley. I have also benefitted from the musical direction of Dr Mary Dullea, Simon Watterton, The Tippett Quartet and Rebecca Miller. I am active as a performer participating in solo and chamber recitals as well as working as a seasonal lounge pianist. I play with sensitivity and passion in a wide range of styles and genres, including virtuosic solo works. In addition, my enthusiasm for contemporary music has provided me with a strong understanding of extended performance techniques. As a violinist, I have performed with the Royal Holloway Symphony Orchestra for three years providing me with a wealth of experience in the specific skills required for orchestral playing. In 2018 and 2019 I toured Europe putting on performances in Paris, Cologne and Bruges.

 
 

Testimonials

Word on the Street

"My three children age 4, 6 and 8 years are all having piano lessons with Aletheia. They look forward to each lesson and within a few weeks their confidence has grown so much. They enjoy learning new notes and are always excited to play me their latest pieces. Aletheia is very patient and professional and I would recommend her to anyone looking to learn the piano."

Claire

"Aletheia has been amazing with my 6 year old and 5 year old. She has managed to work with two different personalities while still making it enjoyable. Aletheia has really helped my daughter progress with her theory work and really engages her. With my son, she is consistently thinking of new techniques to motivate him. Both children love her and she is an absolute pleasure."

Pria

"Firstly I would like to say thank Aletheia for welcoming Summer to your lessons.  It goes without saying how patient encouraging you are to Summer. Summer is a very shy girl and Aletheia has been working on Summer's confidence which has been fantastic.  In four lessons Summer has managed to play Mary had a little lamb. I can't believe how quickly she has started to pick it up. This comes from a teacher that gives lots of praise which is important. I would recommend Aletheia to any one whom is interested in piano lessons."

Therese

"My daughter has been tutored for the last 6 weeks, and I have to say that Aletheia has been amazing with her. She is constantly coming up with new and creative ways to help her to understand what to do, and keep her engaged and excite to learn. From having zero experience with piano, Sasha now has the beginnings of the ability to sight read music, as well as spending time at home practising. It's been great for her to sit, be still and focus! Aletheia is very patient, and shows genuine delight when Sash has accomplished something which is really lovely to see. I'd definitely recommend Aletheia to anybody looking for a piano teacher."

Stuart

"Aletheia is a wonderful teacher she is extremely professional, kind and reliable.  My daughter loves her lessons and has improved massively.  Aletheia has a very calm and supportive manner and provides lots of praise which has given my daughter huge confidence.  I would recommend Aletheia to anyone looking for piano lessons."
