Can I learn the keyboard?

I teach both acoustic piano and keyboard, as well as electric piano/keyboard synths, so totally up to you what you would like to learn during our lessons!

What will we play in our lessons?

I am very keen to build my lessons around what the student is interested in musically. Therefore, if you are passionate about learning jazz or pop I will tailor my lessons around that genre, while still taking you through a course of lessons that will give you a great grounding in the instrument if you are a beginner.

I am a more advanced student / have played the piano previously - can you still help me?

Absolutely, I would be more than happy to help you to continue developing both as a pianist and a musician. In our first lesson we will talk about the areas of your playing that you are interested in improving and I will start to form a course of lessons suited to your specific aims as an individual.

You will be surprised at how many places locally have a piano within that you might be able to ask to practise up, from music shops practise rooms, university, college and school music department for younger students, to local church halls and community centres. Alternatively you can pick up a relatively good beginner keyboard from Amazon for under £100 that will enable to you practise between our lessons.
