Perhaps you’re just starting to learn classical piano; or you’re returning after a break from playing; or you’ve been playing for years. No matter what stage you are at, I can help you to develop as a pianist and achieve your own personal set of goals:
- Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy…
- Develop technical ability
- Expand your repertoire
- Gain insight into the music itself
- Improve sight reading
- Develop listening skills
As a classically trained pianist I offer one to one tuition and guidance for all the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music examinations (ABRSM).
And if you’re a classical pianist who is interested in jazz and blues piano, I also offer tuition and guidance for the newly developed ABRSM jazz piano examinations (Grades 1-5).
Learn how to improvise at the piano and also look at the many similarities that exist between the two disciplines. A background in classical music can be an enormous gift when learning jazz!
Not only did all the great composers improvise at the piano, but many of the best jazz musicians, Herbie Hancock, Keith Jarret, Oscar Peterson and Bill Evans, have been extraordinary and often virtuoso classical pianists as well.
