Piano Teacher

Recommendations in Rose Hill

Can anyone recommend a piano teacher?  I have been attempting to teach myself to play the piano and I think I need someone to help me structure my practice.  Maybe a lesson once a month to help point me in the right direction
Caroline G

I've noticed my car being covered in dust, just being parked on Coronation Road. By the looks of things, everyone else in the street have the same issue.
Peter L
Yes I have the dust in Colchester Road, I believe it is brought across Southern Europe from the Sahara desert, all due to the Anticyclone covering Europe. It is a common occurrence in these conditions.
