I teach from home on my Yamaha U30a piano. Lessons are £30 per hour.

I teach improvisation, Playing by ear, Classical piano, Jazz piano styles from stride, to smooth jazz and funk,

technique, aural recognition, music theory and harmony. I use scorecloud to create a custom curriculum and arrangements

for each student, often based around their choice of piece.
