Natasha is a rare teacher; she is able to quickly spot potential and immediately align it with a strategy that cannot fail to achieve outstanding results in a realistic timeframe. Highly efficient, but never sacrificing detail, her teaching is grounded in a depth of understanding across an impressively wide spectrum of musicianship, from Oxbridge choral traditions through to Contemporary styles, via Musical Theatre, Jazz and Folk. Always underpinned by a rigorous classical training, she is a virtuoso teacher and a polyinstrumentalist who is able to effortlessly ignite the passion of any musician she comes across. 

Consistently outstanding, she has repeatedly proven herself to be one of the most inspiring music teachers. I would not be where I am now had she not taught me.

I have found Natasha Cuin-Wilson to be an excellent and inspirational piano teacher. Her laser-like focus on technique and mastery of pitch accuracy, tempo, tone and expression have enabled me to pass the ABRSM Grade VIII exam and to play more demanding pieces for the diploma than I could ever have previously imagined.

Most of our lessons are virtual which saves much time travelling and, as Natasha has pitch perfect hearing, no small inaccuracy escapes her attention.

Through her, I’ve learned how to make the most of available practice time thereby accelerating the learning process.

Quick to highlight progress, and always providing encouragement, Natasha makes lessons enjoyable and rewarding.

I started vocal and piano lessons with Natasha in Year 7. She has been an inspiring mentor, challenging and motivating me to work at my full potential. Taught by Natasha, I gained my ABRSM Grade 8 in Year 10 and my Diploma in Year 11 for voice. She also helped me achieve an A* in my A-level music recital and a place at the Royal Northern College of Music, studying voice. I love my lessons with Tash as I have been able to develop skills in a wide variety of genres, and broaden my capabilities as a songwriter in a fun and encouraging environment.

My son did an intensive Music Theory course over the summer with Natasha and flourished under her kind and supportive tuition. She is an exceptional teacher and made Grade 5 Theory accessible and engaging to a 10 year old. Her knowledge and friendly approach enabled him not only to achieve a distinction, but to also to enjoy the time he spent with her during his summer holidays. I cannot recommend her enough.

I have been having singing lessons with Natasha since I was in Year 3! I gained my ABRSM Grade 8 and gained a Distinction for my Diploma at the age of 16 only losing three marks! I have now successfully completed my Music College course studying Music Performance and Production and I am still continuing lessons with Natasha who is also teaching me piano too. She has always helped me so much in my music, with my singing, the theory, and throughout my college course, as well as my life along the way.

Tash is an absolutely fantastic teacher, fun and easy to get along with, yet she knows just how hard to push and challenge.  We flew through Grade 5 Theory (got a distinction), working on piano (planning to do Grade 8), as well as coaching me in singing!  Highly recommended.

Grade 5 Theory Distinction

I began my lessons with Natasha back in my Senior school years over 7 years ago, starting with piano lessons. Natasha helped to push me and improve with essential skills such as sight reading, technique and music theory. This massively accelerated my overall abilities as a pianist and allowed me to complete ABRSM Grade 8 Piano before my GCSEs. Natasha has helped me prepare for many music recitals allowing me to produce more confident and emotional performances. Most recently we have worked together on my A-level Music, particularly on my recital where I gained full marks! Alongside this, she was able to teach me Bach Chorales and help with different parts of the course as well such as composition and theory. I am now working towards my Piano Diploma. Natasha has also helped me with my University applications including my personal statement and auditions and I now look forward to studying at my first choice next year which is Music in Liverpool. My lessons are and have always been very fun and engaging and have always given me a challenge! Natasha has always been adaptable and able to help me with anything music related.

Natasha is an excellent musician and music teacher. The results she achieves for her students speak for themselves. Thanks to her guidance and tuition I achieved an ABRSM Grade 8 Distinction and a Musical Performance Diploma (ARSM) for singing. Her commitment to excellence and her genuine care for her students have been instrumental in my singing exam successes. I have recently started re-learning piano with her and, even after only a few lessons, I am already convinced that I am learning more effectively than I learned in past piano lessons with other teachers. I wholeheartedly recommend Natasha to anyone seeking a dedicated, knowledgeable and inspiring music teacher.

I started having singing lessons with Tash in Year 10, and from the first session I immediately loved it. Despite lessons moving to an online format during COVID, I gained Grade 5 Theory, ABRSM Grade 7 and then Grade 8. When we were back in person I then achieved my ARSM Diploma. Because of her skilled teaching of technique and expansive knowledge I was able to achieve all of this in just 3 years. The lessons were always fun, engaging and challenging. I gained so much from every session and always left feeling more confident and excited about singing. Tash also inspired and encouraged me to pursue music further, and she helped me apply and gain a place at Leeds Conservatoire where I am studying now, despite not having taken A Level music. I wouldn't have had the confidence or capability to do this without her and I'm so grateful for her guidance through the process, and that she enabled me to be where I am now.

I have had the privilege of being taught by Tash for the last 16 years. Over this time, she has accompanied me in a number of exams and performances, including coaching me through the performance elements of both GCSE and A Level music. Tash has continued to teach me through my university years and beyond. Under her tutorship, I have successfully gained Grade 5 theory, Grade 5 piano, Grade 8 singing and more recently ABRSM singing diploma achieving a distinction. We are currently working towards Grade 8 piano. Tash creates a learning environment that promotes ambition and success at the highest of levels. She cares greatly about her pupils and works hard to share her extensive musical skill and knowledge. She is able to identify individual strengths, providing challenge within lessons that engages and motivates her pupils to become the best musicians possible. With her encouragement and invaluable advice, I have embarked on my own teaching journey.
