Teaching Career

“Studying music teaches us about life

and performing it makes us forget about it.”

 

Sarkis has established himself as a piano teacher in London, currently holding positions at the Junior Department of Royal Academy of Music, University College School in Hampstead, Durston House School in Ealing Broadway and Mill Hill County High School in North London. He has successfully prepared students for graded examinations and entries to music colleges. Sarkis also leads a private class of students in London and receives invitations to hold masterclasses in Bulgaria, Germany and Cyprus. His passion for teaching has enabled him to contribute back to the music profession his experiences of the concert stage. An important aim in his teaching is to inspire his students into the world of music and this is done through lively discussions, historical references and musical examples.

 

“Sarkis has guided me to Grade 8 after 10 years of teaching through his excellent and motivational guidance. His lessons are hugely enjoyable and each piece is approached with great detail.  I am inspired with each discussion and lesson we share and appreciate his good humour and friendly character”
