Rachel Bristow BA(hons) ABSM
Piano Teacher

Rachel graduated from Birmingham Conservatoire in 1991 with a BA (hons) in Music and a Diploma in Piano Teaching (ABSM). Since then, she has been an active musician as a teacher, performer, conductor, accompanist and singer. Within her teaching career she has had many years of experience as a piano teacher, classroom music teacher and early-years music teacher. Rachel has a real fun-loving heart – she loves injecting fun, excitement and creativity into her lessons and never passes up an opportunity to include puppets in her teaching! With a firm belief that a good teacher never stops developing themselves, she is always learning new ways to enable students of all ages to play and enjoy the music they love.

Alongside her teaching, Rachel is a songwriter and in 2020 released her debut album ‘Wherever I Go’. More information about her music can be found on her facebook page, Rachel Bristow Music. She lives in Warwickshire with her husband and two children.

  • “Amrit and Gurjeevan love telling everyone about their fun lessons! I can’t thank you enough for all your time and attention to the two of them – it’s given them both so much confidence and they talk about their compositions with such pride. As parents, we couldn’t be happier.”

  • “I love my lessons because we play games. I especially like ‘Cuckoo where are you?’ and ‘Doggy with the bone’.”

  • “Jordan’s really grown in confidence over the past year – the group nights and concerts have played a huge part in stretching him and building up his self-belief. He even recently played at a carol service in front of a packed house, which he would never have done without your help!”
