From My Students & Parents
“I have been taking piano lessons with Linda for just over two years. During the height of the pandemic, lesson continuity was executed via the Zoom platform which did not make any difference to the quality of teaching.
Lessons are now face-to-face and Linda has given excellent tuition and support throughout, which has enabled me to sit and pass the ABRSM Grade 5 Performance Exam.
As a matured mature student, this is a milestone in my life, and I am really grateful that Linda has made this possible. Linda has now set the path towards the Grade 6 examination, and I am totally looking forward to it.
Linda is an excellent teacher. She is extremely professional, has a warm and friendly attitude. I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn to play the piano.”
“I really like how Linda is teaching my daughter and leading her to ABRSM exams, she has developed amazing piano skills! She is very professional, experienced and lovely with children. Even when we moved, Gala and I prefer to travel to have her lessons. And I thank her so much her patience and dedication with online lessons; she helped me a lot to improve online communication so this hard times of lockdown didn’t affect Gala’s piano learning. Thanks a lot, Linda.”

We in Newport are very fortunate to have such a talented piano/music teacher in Linda. Not only is Linda a very able and talented music/piano teacher, she is also a person with a very pleasant personality and disposition.
Since I’ve been to Linda for piano lessons I have been enjoying the learning prosses and have become more confident after each lesson, that’s because Linda makes the lessons enjoyable.
I am a 75 year old just starting a new journey in learning the piano, and enjoying it. Wish I started earlier. But as they say, better late than never.
“As a mature student I approached my first lesson with trepidation. I need not have worried. Linda is so clear in her instruction, so patient and has progressed at a rate I’m comfortable with. She has made the lessons a pleasure. I’m not afraid to make mistakes and I’m enjoying the piano very much thanks to Linda.”
“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”.
“I like my lessons very much, Miss always makes it fun. Miss has taught me to play lots of cool songs. I can now read music. I am very grateful for my lessons and I can’t wait for the next lesson!”
“Oliver really enjoys his piano lessons and has really picked it up better than we thought! Not only has he begun to learn a new life skill but his academic skills have improved in school during this time. Every time he comes from his lesson, he has a beaming smile and something new to play to us! Linda has brought out the best from our son and we very much look forward to the great work continuing! Thank you!”
“I feel like I have progressed so much since Linda started teaching me. I used to think that piano was a chore but when Linda came along and taught me a whole new way my perspective changed entirely. I now love piano and look forward to every lesson”.
“My 10-year-old daughter started her lessons with Linda eight months’ ago. Her progress over this period has been remarkable. The lessons are well structured and include time spent on scales, pieces and music theory.
Linda is clearly passionate about teaching and she is both encouraging and patient with my daughter. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a piano teacher”.
“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”
“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.”
“I really enjoy piano lessons with Mrs Stevens. I’ve learnt a lot from them and I know how to play the piano well now and I find it really fun.’”
“‘We are very pleased with the progress that Lucy has made with Mrs Stevens. She really enjoys her lessons which are fun and professional.’”
“I like Mrs Stevens’s teaching because she gets straight on with the grades and doesn’t muck about. She gives me confidence when taking my exams. I am really enjoying piano lessons.”
“It is a pleasure to see Amelie’s smile each time we pick her up from piano. She has come on in leaps and bounds since joining Mrs Stevens and we couldn’t be more pleased with her progress!”
‘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.’
