Classical Piano Tuition
I teach practical music and theory for grades 1- 8 and diplomas. Teaching technique, posture, sight reading, scales and Hanon exercises. As well as working towards ABRSM grade 1-8 exams and Diploma level (DipABRSM) I also teach students to read their favourite classical pieces for a lifetime of piano enjoyment.
Jazz & Blues
There is very little written music in this type of learning. The basics involve learning the blues scales and simple chord progressions. After only a handful of lessons students are able to play their own little inventions based on the material I give them.
Many students like to play pop / rock songs as well as classical music. I am able to provide sheet music tailored to a student’s ability and also can teach music by ear or chord symbols. I also teach people how to adapt music written for a full band to solo piano. With this students can learn how to play anything.
