Piano Lessons Nottingham
Interested in piano lessons in Nottingham? I would be happy to provide a consultation lesson.
Orchard School of Music has been established since 1990, teaching a wide variety of pupils from a young age to over 70 years old. I am a graduate music teacher and retired examiner, teaching all brass instruments, including trumpet piano, music theory and diplomas.
Help can also be provided for GCSE and A-level exams. Before working as a private music teacher I taught piano, brass and theory in schools for a number of years.
Music sessions are taught on a one to one basis and include musical theory and sight reading. All piano teaching includes learning the treble and bass clef notation.
I do not insist that my students take musical examinations, although the majority do progress up to Grade 8 and Diploma level. It is entirely up to the individual and some students just want to learn for fun.
Piano lessons and trumpet lessons take place Monday-Wednesday, during the day and in the evening. If you’re considering piano or trumpet lessons then please do use my contact page to get in touch.
A parent or guardian must sit in and observe if a child is having lessons.
Arrange a Piano Lesson
I have been teaching music since the 1980s, having first taught in schools across Nottingham and then moved to teaching privately in 1989.
Back then it was a big step as my wife was pregnant with my first son.
Fast forward 30 years and I am still teaching from my music room in the family home. It is a great quiet space, overlooking our garden.
Over the years I have taught hundreds of pupils, many of which have moved on in those 3 decades but still remain friends to this day. I do ask occasionally if they have continued to practice!
I take pride in the fact our family has helped so many people to learn a new musical instrument and even all this time later I still enjoy every moment of teaching.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long do lessons last?
Do you teach for exams?
Some students prefer to learn just for fun, whilst others would prefer to learn to take Grade exams. If you do prefer to learn the Grades then I teach from Grade 1 to Grade 8 and also on to Diploma level.
When does teaching take place?
I teach piano, trumpet and theory Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Where do lessons take place?
Music teaching takes place from my family home in Arnold, Nottingham.
Do I need my own instrument?
Whilst you do not need your own instrument, I always recommend you do have access to one outside of your lessons. This allows for time to practice.
