Piano Lessons in Notting Hill W11

If you asked me what is the most important thing about taking piano lessons, I'd say 'enjoying yourself'. No-one progresses very far in anything unless they're enjoying it. I teach piano from my purpose-built piano studio in Notting Hill W11, West London. Although I studied at a couple of famous London music colleges, I'm more proud of 30 years experience in the real world, playing piano and electronic keyboards for a living. Having performed with major artists at festivals, in concert halls, clubs and other music venues, I believe that offering practical experience coupled with a solid academic background is the most successful way to deliver relevant musical tuition in the 21st century.

Associate - London College of Music

Before touring the world, composing TV and film music and releasing records, I studied at the Royal College of Music and the London College of Music, most notably with Peter Turton, William Lloyd Webber (father of Julian and Andrew), John McCabe and Susan Bradshaw. I studied violin, viola, drums and composition, teaching myself guitar, bass guitar and percussion, which gives me a deep understanding of musical arrangements and brings massive added value to my production work. I hold an Associate diploma in performance from the London College of Music, offering you a solid academic background on top of extensive pop, rock and jazz experience to assist with your piano studies.

Why Book My Piano Lessons?

My piano lessons in Notting Hill W11 cover all styles of piano music. If you choose to take exams, I offer ABRSM, LCM, Trinity, MTB and RSL syllabuses. I teach Jazz Piano, R&B/Nu Soul piano, Soul/Funk Piano, Gospel Piano, Pop Piano, EDM etc. Today, becoming a well-rounded musician requires so much more than many 'traditional' approaches acknowledge. I believe strongly in combining traditional disciplines with more contemporary elements like improvisation, rhythmic awareness, aural and recognition skills. These, coupled with technical development, dexterity, sight reading and harmony (classical and jazz) are essential IMHO to ensure the success of musicians in a constantly evolving and genre-fluid world.
