Frances Jenkins 
Music Educator and Postgraduate Researcher

I have been a piano teacher in Cardiff since 2006, teaching piano, vocals, theory and music technology to hundreds of young and old musicians.  In 2020, 100% of my students achieved merits in their ABRSM practical exams, and I have a 100% exam pass rate over 15 years of teaching. I also have many excellent students who do not wish to take exams but are learning for pure joy.

I was classically-trained by Russian-method teachers from the age of 6, and I play jazz, blues and popular styles having been trained at the Atrium Cardiff. Following the completion of a MA at Swansea University,  I was awarded the National Productivity and Investment Fund (NPIF) 3D3 studentship to undertake a PhD research project entitled 'Exploring and Developing Piano Tuition Online' at Falmouth University.

"I would highly recommend Frances as an excellent, enthusiastic piano teacher. As an adult and complete beginner I needed a patient teacher. I'm pleased to say I got to Grade 2 in just over a year, and now I'm hoping to tackle Grade 5..."

“Frances' approach to online piano tuition is excellent. Her attention to detail, friendly-approach and professional online teaching is brilliant. Our sessions are always filled with handy tips and techniques to improve playing. I always leave a session having learned something new. You can tell Frances has taken the time to set up an online environment that is designed to get the most out of your sessions.”

"I’ve got two girls aged 10 and 12, both with very different styles (one jazz/blues, the other classical) and Frances is a wonderful teacher for both of them. She really gets where they’re coming from in terms of personality and style and varies her lessons to suit. She’s got bags of enthusiasm and her love for the instrument and the music is infectious. I’ve got no hesitation recommending her, she’s a wonderful teacher."
