Lindsey Berwin studied at The Royal Academy of Music, graduating with a degree in music and a piano teaching diploma. After obtaining a Post Graduate Certificate in Education and teaching classroom music for two years, she decided to refocus her attention on piano teaching. Since then she has amassed some thirty five years of experience, with a thriving teaching practice both at home in Leeds and at the schools of the Wakefield Grammar School Foundation.

Lindsey has become well-known for her innovative and enjoyable approaches to improving key skills, as well as her passion for composition. She and her pupils regularly win prizes in the annual European Piano Teachers Composers’ Competition.

Lindsey is the composer of FunKey!, a series of books designed to improve piano students’ sight reading skills using jazz based material, and Jazz Keys, its counterpart for the flute. Her most recent published works are All The Fun Of The Fair, a suite of piano pieces suitable for intermediate and advanced students, and Vignettes, a collection for advanced pianists grade 8 and above.
