My name is Lee Gallacher. I've been playing the piano since I was five, so I know how nerve wracking it can be to learn an instrument - and the difference a good teacher makes! I've been teaching forover 10 years, taking countless pupils through their own ABRSM examinations. I've taught all 8 grades in that time, and its been a pleasure to watch pupils of all ages, backgrounds and experience levels achieve their goals and learn to play this wonderful instrument.
