Beth's Gran (April 2017)
'I was looking for a pianist to give my Grandaughter guidance for an audition she is about to take, which requires her to sing to a piano, which she has never done. The first place I looked was the internet and came across Linda who is a Piano teacher. I rang her on the off chance she could help and although she stipulated she was not a singing teacher, she was willing to help. This she certainly has done. Nothing has been too much trouble for her and my Grandaughter has benefitted enormously. Thank you, Linda, for all the help and advice you have given'
Beth (April 2017)
'Linda has helped me prepare for an upcoming singing audition. She has given me confidence and with her vast musical knowledge, I feel ready to meet the challenge. Above all I went to Linda not knowing her or what to expect and extremely nervous but I needn't have worried as she is so welcoming, helpful, kind and understanding'

Harry’s Mum (Sept 2016)
‘Harry enjoys going to piano lessons and is making great progress in a short period of time. Mrs Stevens tailors the teaching to keep Harry interested and excited. We would highly recommend Mrs Stevens to any parent considering lessons.’
Harry (Sept 2016)
‘Mrs Stevens is always helpful and kind because she lets me miss a week if I have somewhere to go. I like doing scales. I worked out the chorus of a hymn and showed her. The next week she had written it out for me to learn’.
Sarah (Sept 2016)
‘I have been a student of Linda for just over a year and have progressed very well in that time, completing both Grade 1 & 2 to distinction level. Previous to Linda I taught myself. I found that having a lesson each week helped me focus. It gives the opportunity for me to practise and for Linda to iron out any mistakes/bad habits before they become too embedded. Linda is a marvellous teacher. She is extremely well qualified and has a keen ear. She is kind but always fair in her feedback. I thoroughly enjoy my lessons and know I would not be progressing so well if it weren’t for Linda’s support and guidance’
Andri’s Mum (May 2015)
‘My daughter has been having piano lessons with Mrs Stevens for the last 2 years. She always looks forward to her lesson which she finds very enjoyable. She has progressed really well’.
Andri (May 2015)
‘My piano lesson is really good because my teacher helps me whenever I need help and she gives me good comments as I do the piece I play. She helps me to learn different music pieces and helps me prepare for exams. She is a really helpful teacher. I really enjoy my piano lesson’.

Janet (Jan 2015)
‘Music has always played a significant role in my life, giving me great pleasure. On my retirement, I found the time to revive my very basic piano skills. Linda has rekindled my enthusiasm for the Piano. She is an incredible teacher, patient, encouraging, knowledgeable, passionate about her subject, with the ability to inspire and instil confidence. I have derived so much pleasure from the lessons, my only regret is that I did not start these sooner!. I would not hesitate to recommend Linda as a piano teacher’.
‘As an adult learner, I was nervous and a little apprehensive when I started Piano lessons with Linda. Now, however, I am really enjoying the experience and have benefited from Linda’s wonderful tuition and teaching. I am making progress and enjoying playing different pieces and improving my music theory as well. I can thoroughly recommend it!
‘Lilli has been really enjoying her piano lessons with Mrs Stevens. I can really see her progress’.
‘I have really enjoyed coming to piano, I have got more confident each time’.
‘Linda’s (Mrs Stevens) ability to teach 60 year + pupils is quite exceptional. She realises that as beginners these pupils need to experience a modicum of success fairly quickly and her selection of music reflects this. She has a natural talent for bringing out the best in her pupils and her firm but fair approach together with a sense of humour ensures that learning the piano at 60 + is fun’.
Carl and Jessica’s Wedding
‘We had Linda playing at St John’s Church, Llandenny when we got married there in August 2013. We couldn’t have chosen a better or more professional pianist. Linda was more than happy to play the music we selected and was very helpful with recommendations on tempo and sound. Linda was very accommodating of our needs and played beautifully. She is very talented and we would highly recommend her services. A five star performer and it didn’t break the bank either. Thank you so much.’ Carl & Jessica – August 2013′

‘I go to piano lessons and they are very good because it is fun and I like to play the piano in the morning to wake everyone up for school. I also enjoy playing the piano after school to cheer them up. The reason I like piano lessons most is because Mrs Stevens is such a good and fun teacher and also because I know that if I practise something enough I get very very good at it!’
‘My daughter started going for piano lessons over two years ago and loves going every week. She has obtained a distinction in her Grade 1 theory paper and plays with real enthusiasm and confidence. This is testament to Mrs Stevens wonderful teaching. She has a calm, encouraging approach which puts her pupils at ease instantly. I feel my daughter is extremely lucky to have her as a piano teacher. I am also very pleased with the lesson fees and find them very reasonable compared to some other piano lessons I have seen advertised’.
