Teaching Info

Lessons will be tailored to suit students individual interests and and levels as well as being thorough and easy to follow to allow for maximum improvement. I believe lessons should beĀ fun and exciting allowing for those little victories that inspire you to keep learning the piano and fuel the desire to get better.

If you are completely new to piano, thats awesome! its the best instrument there is and it would be my pleasure to show the secrets to unlocking the keyboard and get you playing like you wish you could.

If you have piano experience thats awesome as well! maybe you want to improve on what you’ve already worked or maybe get into the fascinating world and sounds of jazz piano and improvisation. In which case I can take you through this rewarding style step by step.

Additionally I can take you through music theory and train your ears up so you can be the best musician possible.
