My name is Len Dolphin and I am an experienced and qualified teacher of Music and Piano, having a LGSM diploma in piano teaching and a Cert.Ed. of the University of London qualificaton for secondary music teaching in schools. I have 27 years experience as a Head of Music in the state sector, and since then over 20 years experience teaching piano in my home studio.
I teach piano to all ages and abilities from beginner to diploma, theory up to Grade 8, aural to all levels and accompany students taking their exams.
My aim is to inspire a love of music in my students through the piano and to develop their skills in order to achieve this, I therefore encourage most of my students where appropriate to take ABRSM exams, which are held in my home studio twice a year. I also am happy to offer a more open ended approach.

I am CRB checked with an Enhanced Disclosure Certificate and am a member of the ISM (holding FISM status)

I am a highly qualified and experienced teacher of piano, singing and music theory with a first class honours degree from the Birmingham Conservatoire and an instrumental teaching diploma. I have successfully taught piano and singing in all styles from classical to pop for 20 years. In addition to my private practice I have also taught at the Leeds College of Music for some years.

All ages and abilities are welcome, from beginners to advanced. My tuition is tailored to each individual’s goals and I am happy to teach those learning ‘just for fun’ as well as those who wish to perform and take exams. I have an excellent exam success rate with ABRSM, Trinity and Rock School.

Alongside teaching I perform frequently both as a singer and pianist. I work as an accompanist and also a songwriter. My work has been played on BBC 2, various radio stations and in theatres around the UK including Theatre Royal, York and Komedia, Brighton.

Please email or call 07979 472765 for all enquiries.

I have been teaching piano both pratical and theory for over thirty years. I prepare students for ABRSM exams with 100% pass rate including merits and distinctions. Each student has a structured learning plan in preparation for exams. I also teach older students who want to learn piano as a hobby. I have a dedicated music studio in my house but can also teach students in their own homes if preferred. I have recently moved to Hailsham from the Gatwick area and you can read my reviews below.

“Maryna began teaching my eldest daughter since she was 6 years old which was 4 years ago, and she recently took both her grade 3 theory and practical. She a wonderfully upbeat generous lady who has become like a member of the family. She is patient, encouraging and really knows how to keep the momentum going whatever humor your child is in. My daughter loves having her as her piano teacher and my younger child begged Maryna to teach her from the age of 2. Maryna is honest, trustworthy and kind and always looks to encourage my children and find something good and praiseworthy in each lesson. One in a million.”

“A fantastic teacher. Maryna is an inspirational teacher who really cares about the students she teaches. My son especially has responded amazingly well to her teaching and has made fantastic progress in the piano.”
