For birthdays, weddings or just because you think they deserve it, a gentle push towards something you know they really want to do makes for a great gift. Many of my most long-standing students started this way.
Choose any number of lessons to buy as a gift and recieve a bespoke voucher/certificate to present on the big day. Choose your own wording, and I'll post it to you, or email it so you can print it out secretly yourself. Call me to discuss latest availabily of times and any other queries.
See T&Cs for Further info regarding all lessons

Evening lessons are normally once a week (at the same time); schoolchildren (and feckless college and uni students) may follow term times if you wish... and of course holidays may be taken when you (or I) need them. Some fortnightly 1 hour slots are also available.
Daytime lessons can be weekly, fortnightly or even ad hoc if you wish
For advanced students and professionals studying theory, composition, imrovisation etc. lessons will also usually be on a fortnightly ad-hoc basis.
Learn one special song – e.g. for a wedding
Many songs can be simplified so that even if you don't play, or not very well, we can create a version for you to perform for a special occasion
Singers – learn to accompany yourself with chords - book an introductory set of 4 lessons for £120 Iinstead of the full £140

Don't have a piano? Not sure about choices? Just startingand not sure if you want to commit to buying yet?

We have a beautiful study/waiting
room - wait while your children
are here or come as early as you
want for your lesson, bring a book
or laptop and just relax in our
1920's Parisian Deco club chairs
or Victorian chaise.
In the warmer months you can also relax outside in one of the many seating areas in our National Garden Scheme Garden (I also design gardens). Feed the squirrels and birds, watch the frogs!! See Pictures
Feel free to park on our gravel drive if there's space, or on the road - no yellow lines! You'll need to park half on - half off on The Drive, or park round the corner on Fog lane.
If you are already play keyboards or another instrument, or you are a writer; and whether you are self - taught, classically trained or come from a production background, there comes a point where a bit more understanding of one sort or another can help. So if you want to play in different styles, read chords instead of dots (or indeed vice versa), master boogie woogie, discover improvisation or just write better music then I'm keen to help - give me a call.
All my teaching from beginners onwards includes showing how music is actually created, understanding chords and simple composition and improvisation, advancing as you advance.
