About Jackie Clark Music
You can find out about Jackie Clark Music Online Piano Lessons and how I ran out of a piano exam as I was terrified.
I began learning to play the piano at seven years of age. I enjoyed taking lessons and progressively working through exams.
Playing the piano was not my first love; that was swimming. I adored swimming excelled in racing, and was being trained for the Olympic games. This went well until I broke my back while swinging on a rope swing, which was great fun until I fell off. I probably could have continued these days once my back was healed. Treatment in those dark days was not to do anything strenuous and forget swimming competitively.
So, playing the piano became my primary hobby. I don’t particularly appreciate performing in public. I even ran out of a piano exam through being terrified. I still find playing in public unpleasant, so I don’t, but with students, I have no problems at all. (When I returned for the exam, the examiner remembered me and said that if I had not run out, I would have passed the exam. All I needed to do was continue for the final few minutes.)
Teaching became my career and has been for over 30 years.
I support all students, whether they are members of this site or taking online live lessons. Support is essential if students are to succeed.
I have owned several music schools in several countries and now teach online. I do this both through this membership site and with live lessons using Google Mee

How do you feel about exams?
Some students love the idea of taking exams, while others are terrified. (I ran out of at least one of my exams, so I know how stressful exams can be.) I don’t mind if students do or don’t take exams. for a student, it is a personal choice. I took exams because it was how things were done in the days I took my piano lessons.
When I think about it, I really had no choice; once my teacher thought I had reached a sufficient standard, my exam was booked, and off I went for the exam. This is not something I would force on any student. I believe lessons and enjoying playing the piano are more critical than taking exams. Most students don’t have an interest in exams. For those who are interested in exams, I am pleased to ensure they reach the required standard to take the exam.
To take lessons for exams, changing from this membership site to live lessons is necessary. However, my system of courses on this site will ensure that students can achieve a standard ready for exam coaching.
Most students are more than happy with the level of playing they have achieved and continue enjoying their playing of the piano without exams.
