About piano lessons

I do not insist that you take piano exams when learning. This is up to you. I have students who begin lessons who have never played a piano or trumpet before and I have some who are already advanced players. If you would prefer to learn the grades, I have taught hundreds of students from Grade 1 standard up to Grade 8 and further on to a Diploma. I generally use the London College exam board.

What do piano lessons and trumpet lessons entail?

When you learn to play either piano or trumpet with me it is not just about the practical playing of the instrument. I always encourage the learning of musical theory and how to read sheet music properly. This will help as you are progressing.

Who can learn to play piano or trumpet?

Over the years I have taught all ages to play piano or trumpet. You are never too old to learn how to play! All lessons are tailored to suit each individual student’s needs, so rest assured you will always be getting the most from your sessions.

Piano and trumpet lesson lengths

Whether you are looking to play piano or trumpet to pass the grades, or just looking to play for fun, I am available with weekly or bi-weekly lessons.

I teach from my family home in Arnold, Nottingham. Piano lessons or trumpet lessons can last either half an hour, 45 minutes or 1 hour. Lessons are usually on a one to one basis.
