Rachel Bristow BA (hons) ABSM

Rachel graduated from Birmingham Conservatoire in 1991 with a BA (hons) in Music and a Diploma in Piano Teaching (ABSM). During her time at the Conservatoire she studied violin and piano as well as working at a local nursery leading music and movement classes. Since then, she has been active musician and teacher, conducting and accompanying choirs, teaching both piano and classroom music, and playing for assemblies and productions. For the past 14 years she has had the privilege of singing alto with The Warwickshire Singers, a choir bases in Kenilworth. Rachel loves composing and improvising and continues to develop herself as a musician as she believes a good teacher never stops learning. She has worked with children in many voluntary capacities and has a real fun loving heart, particularly enjoying puppets! Rachel lives in Warwickshire with her husband and two children.


  • I loved playing games like ‘Cuckoo where are you?’ and ‘Doggy with the bone’.

    Phoebe – Aged 5
  • I like going to music because it makes me happy and I like learning the songs.

    Benjamin – Aged 5
  • A fun way to learn all about music.  The children sing, dance and play different instruments all in a relaxed and friendly environment.  After the lessons none of the children are in a rush to go home!

  • As the parent of a child who had never played piano before, I found the teacher to be delightful and patient and their lessons to be engaging and at an appropriate level for my daughter.  The fact that the main emphasis of CCPT appears to be on engaging the student and not about their ability level makes it the perfect environment to learn in!

  • The Musical Discoveries lessons are fantastic: pacy, fun and engaging.  It’s been great to see my daughter’s singing confidence grow.

  • Friends and family are really impressed with what and how they learn, as some of the lessons they talk about are just about working through a book and learning each piece one at a time. Amrit and Gurjeevan love telling everyone about their fun lessons and talk about their compositions with pride!  I cannot thank you enough for all your time and attention to the two of them.  It has given them both so much confidence in themselves and they are so proud of what they are achieving.  As parents, we couldn’t be happier.

  • Daisy enjoys her classes immensely and looks forward to her lessons each week.

  • We have seen Jordan grow in confidence over the past year and the group nights as well as the concerts have played a huge part in stretching him and building up his self belief and confidence.  This was noticeable over the festive period when at church Jordan played 2nd keys for our carol service in front of a packed house.  This he wouldn’t have done without your help over the past year so thank you and keep up the good work!
