Piano Tuition for all ages and abilities with experienced pianist and teacher - Classical / Grades 1-8 / Music theory

Hi students and music lovers !

Piano is a fun and rewarding way to explore music for people of all ages, whether you've played music before or not, and is one of the most accessible instruments right from the first lesson! I teach with a variety of pop-transcriptions and easy Classical pieces, simple improvisation and harmony exercises, and am comfortable adapting to each pupils own way of learning.

If you're new to piano, or have played before and want to rekindle your love of music, get in touch to arrange a first lesson! I will book us a room with a grand piano at the Academy.

I graduated Master’s cum laude in Piano Performance at the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre studying with prof. Peep Lassmann, who was himself a student of the great Russian pianist Emil Gilels.

I have 12 years' private teaching experience, and was employed by Märjamaa Music and Art School as a 1:1 piano teacher in 2018-19. I also have a BMus (Hons) degree from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, and DipABRSM, the standard professional teaching qualification in the UK.


Reviews from current students:

"Jamie is an amazing teacher. I had no knowledge of piano before him and was worried in general of being able to learn. His way of explaining, patience and incredible passion for music gave me the push to try and are reinforcing my motivation to learn more day-by-day. Our classes are alive, fun, and so much like a continuous journey through all the aspects of piano music."

"Jamie makes this comfortable atmosphere, you'll never be afraid to make a mistake. I learned a song already in my second/third lesson. 🙂 "

About Me

HI, I'm Jamie

I’m a British pianist who recently graduated with a Master’s cum laude at the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre, studying with prof. Peep Lassmann, a student of the legendary Russian pianist Emil Gilels, and have 7 years conservatoire education in 3 different countries. I was awarded 3rd Prize at the Theodor Stein Piano Competition that same year, and have given recitals in the UK, Spain, Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, including a recording featured on Latvian state television channel LTV1.

Since 2007, I’ve worked with private students in the UK, Finland and Estonia. I’m humbled by the unique relationship each student develops to music making, and firmly believe that piano playing can absolutely be accomplished by anyone.

Leonardo
Music Lessons for beginners, intermediate and advanced musicians
In my first years of music training I was always wondering what I was playing. Why this note works better with this other note, why this part returns in the end of the piece but with different chords. In this course I would like to share what I have learned so far about composition and harmony. Jazz harmony it's possible but my education is strictly classical

Mariam
Piano Lessons; Music Theory Lessons; History of world music.
First of all, I try to make my lessons fruitful and varied. Each lesson is a new stage, of course, it all depends on the student's activity and determination. We will definitely review the curriculum. My teaching process includes not only playing the piano, but also music theory, which is very important in the learning process.

Alari
Popular music and contemporary performance (UK syllabus)
Entry level lessons teach about rhythm, melody, harmony, duo play, replay, music listening and ear training, music notation and sight-reading. Learning depends on your life experience and abilities. You can learn some days, some others may develop skills some years. Leaners can continue studies in a music school or studio. Musical literacy is the reading, writing, and playing of music, as well an understanding of cultural practice and historical and social contexts. Kopli is famous for bohemians and fine art. Young musicians can rent a music studio for free of charge at the youth centre.

Classical piano and music theory lessons for beginners, intermediate and advance students
I provide piano lesson for beginning, intermediate and advanced students, preparing them for piano exams up to grade 8, including the necessary aural and music theory training. I also teach pre-school children from the age of 3 as well as children with disabilities, adjusting the music program to their needs. When working with young children I focus on developing their musical imagination and curiosity, while also providing them with technical skills and a detailed understanding of the musical score. I aim to provide a firm basis on which they can build a western classical repertoire, or any other musical style they choose. For beginners I work with one of the early piano syllabi, usually Thompson's 'Easiest Piano Course' or Oxford's piano method book 'Piano Time,' which consist of fun songs and simple melodies. Through this the pupil is gradually introduced to various aspects of the melody (such as pitch, duration of notes, phrasing and articulation) and coordination of both hands on the keyboard in a creative and stimulating way. At this stage I place a strong emphasis on proper body posture and hand position. As the pupil acquires fundamental piano skills and gets comfortable reading music I proceed with them through the ABRSM or Trinity piano syllabus to a more advanced repertoire. Throughout a student’s education, I incorporate sight reading, scales exercises and technical work into the lesson structure and daily practice routine of the pupil. I also focus on developing my students’ understanding of how music theory applies to the material they play. Applying Musicological knowledge and own performing experience I teach students in depth analyses of the music they play, guide their individual interpretation and bring their awareness to the specifics of a historically informed performance. My pupils play a broad variety of western classical styles, and I will work with them to balance their program and maximise their enjoyment and appreciation for music. The student will become familiar with the main forms and stylistic traits of baroque, classical, romantic and 20th century Western classical music. I will also make sure the pieces stay challenging technically and if needed I will provide additional materials which will help the student to focus on the areas which need most work on. Though not usually covered in exam syllabi, I am happy to work alongside the student on pieces which do not necessarily fit into the Western classical canon, should they so wish. Playing and learning an instrument should primarily bring joy, and as a result inspire the student’s dedication to practice and foster a willingness to work hard. I believe in the importance of the relationship between teacher and student and as such provide the needed mental support and encouragement. I adopt an intuitive pupil-centred approach to learning that will best support their passion for making music. Attention to detail is paramount, and staying attuned to the needs of the student is always a priority. As such, I will adjust the tempo of the program to meet goals at a pace that is ideal for both the pupil’s ability and well-being.

Arashk
Piano classes with focusing on music theory and history
Playing an instrument is not just about pushing buttons or bowing. It is also about how you do it. You can not play a piece perfectly unless you know it's highs and lows. To play a piece, you need to know it theoretically and historically. And I'm here to teach you how a piece should be done on a piano. If you are more interested in knowing a piece than just playing it, I'm your guy.

Giorgia
Piano lessons - music theory and harmony - for any level
I teach for all levels, from children starting from zero to students who want to prepare certifications at the Conservatories, passing through amateurs or simply curious of any age. I firmly believe in the importance of knowing how to read music and this is exactly what I teach first, obviously adapting the method to the age of my students: knowing how to read music is knowing one more language, which, if learned well, won’t ever be forgotten (like riding a bicycle!) and it is an invaluable wealth. Starting from that point I teach the position of the hand, the arm and the whole body at the piano, the fundamentals of the piano technique (giving great importance to the percussive movement of the finger and the distribution of weight), the understanding of musical language, the expression of the personality through the keyboard, the search for touch and knowledge of piano repertoire.

Denise
Singing classes for all age students and different vocal styles (pop, folk or classical) Online or Offline in Vienna
Dear students: My name is Denise and I'm a professional singer with a singing master's degree from Catalonia's Music College (ESMUC) specialized in Historical Singing, Musicology and Music Education. My experience runs mostly in early and classical music with an active performing life, nevertheless I also have the experience and knowledge of popular musical styles such as Latin-American folk, jazz and musicals. As a docent or vocal coach I've collaborate with different academic institutions and private artistic projects, focusing mostly on international students or social integration programs. I have years of experience teaching children, teenagers and adults in both Latin-America and Europe, therefore understanding different appreciation levels and needs. My main goal is to help the student discover her or his voice while enjoying making music. **Class suggestions and indications** No experience is needed just bring your enthusiasm and favorite music. Classes can be given either in English, Spanish, French or Deutsch. There are no limit for styles, bring your favorite music and I will provide a safe environment for your personal and musical growth. For Children I strongly recommend the 45 min class since their attention span and body development is different from an adult. Feel free to contact me in case of further questions. I hope to read from you soon and to make music together. All my best, Denise P.S. My schedule is mostly a suggestion since I'm constantly editing and adapting to a work schedule, please feel free to send me a message regarding your schedule needs and suggestions in order to give you the best service.

Making Music Fun: Learn Violin, Singing, or Piano!
Billy Joel said, "I think music in itself is healing. It's an explosive expression of humanity. It's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music." This, too, is something I believe in, and I wish to share my own love of music with prospective students. I offer violin, voice, and piano lessons to students of all ages. Lessons range from 30 to 60 minutes, depending on student's level. I believe in meeting students where they are at, so we will work together to find goals and objectives that suit you. (Or, if you have no goals and simply want to make some noise, that's good too!) I hope to inspire students to find their own voices and delve into their creativity.
