Charlotte Tomlinson

Course Director

Charlotte has been teaching the piano for over thirty years and teaches from her studio in Oxford, where she has a thriving private practice. She taught at the Purcell School for eleven years, the University of Hong Kong and HK Academy for Performing Arts and now primarily teaches students from the University of Oxford, post-graduates from the London music colleges along with international piano students who come to Oxford to study with her.

Most recently, Charlotte has worked with pianists in masterclasses and individually at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Oxford International Piano Festival and the Verbier Academy, Switzerland. She held intensive piano masterclasses for students at the International Piano Academy, Konz, Germany from 2015-2017 and gave a masterclass to the keyboard department at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire in 2018. She gave a talk at the Leeds International Piano Competition on the psychology of performance and competition for the 2018 competition and will be working with the laureates of the Sydney International Piano Competition in 2021.

Charlotte is passionate about teaching piano technique and supporting pianists in being physically free and letting go of unnecessary tension, aches and pains when they practice or perform; she has a track record in moving pianists on from tendonitis and other performing related injuries and has been recommended as a practitioner by BAPAM for many years. As an internationally renowned Performance Coach, Charlotte brings an added dimension to her piano teaching, and students will have the benefit of being supported in performance anxiety and many other performing related issues.
