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.

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.

From Jazz to Classical: Saxophone and Piano lessons in Amsterdam
Jazz Lessons in Amsterdam. Don't wait anymore and start your new hobby! If you love music and you feel the inner urge of learning it, I can help you out. I can teach students from all the levels playing either saxophone or piano. From jazz style to classical. After years of studying and practicing, I've arrived to the conclusion that the best way to learn music is by transcribing and singing. Music is like language,so I start by teaching how to connect the voice with the instrument. In an playfull way, I will introduce you to harmony, teach you how to read music, compose your own tunes and improvise. Side by side with theory according to your musical taste and preferences. I've been learning music since I was 3 years old and recently I've graduated with a Master Degree at the Conservatorium Van Amsterdam. Previously, I've studied at ESMUC (Barcelona), Kunst Uni Graz (Graz), Temple University (Philadelphia). I'm a professional performer since 5 years ago and I've performed in several countries around the world.
