Early Classical Piano, All-level Jazz Piano and Music Theory Classes

Jazz piano is an excellent route for people who are looking for a less book-focused, more aural approach to learning an instrument. I can tutor beginners to the piano or classical-converts who are looking to experience jazz by condensing my education down into core principles. This method of learning helps you move away from the books and to start enjoying the piano with more confidence and skill. I teach with a strong emphasis on theory and aural listening and with my resources I can take you through basics to more advanced lessons.

I'm also fully equipped to teach music theory classes and to tutor in GCSE and A-Level music (composition, particularly) as well as teaching early level classical piano (up to ABRSM Grade 6).

Whether you're looking for chord skills on the piano or want to become an improviser, these are the lessons for you!

Extra information

Keyboard/piano will be needed. More advanced lessons will require a full 88-key keyboard but earlier lessons will be fine on any!

About Me

I'm a young, enthusiastic jazz pianist based in London who is looking to spread my love for music on to others! I'm currently studying an MA in Music Therapy. My education in Music Therapy has offered me a unique insight into the innate musicality of everybody and I can adjust teaching to each individual to make sure it's something they want to be doing. I'm a great believer in off-the-book learning and aural tradition but also believe the milestones offered by traditional grade systems to be a great motivator, so long as they don't become the focus! I've worked at schools and can comfortably tutor GCSE and A-Level music as well as Music Theory right up to Grade 8 ABRSM. I'm a versatile individual and confident that I can find a way of learning that makes you just as confident in me too.
