You do not need to be able to read music.
I currently teach online only from my home in Italy having lived and taught in London for many years.

I can do 30 min lessons. These are £15.
Please be punctual and please do not cancel within 24 hours.
My students vary in age from 7 to.. I think my oldest so far was about 70
I was teaching from home mostly, with some peripatetic students. Now I am teaching online.
Many of my students simply wish to learn some songs - I have many methods that can be used for this, reading music is not the only way.
Others want to develop an in depth knowledge of harmony and theory to understand how and why it all works.
Essentially, each student has a unique set of goals and we work together to develop the best curriculum to achieve those goals.
After studying classical music until age 18 I went to Leeds to do a degree in Jazz.
After leaving college I played solo piano gigs and, after moving to London, I had several bands before joining Roy Ayers band in 1994. I played with Roy for 4 years.
In 1998 my band The Jazz Steppers won Best Jazz Act at the MOBO awards.
Since then I have released 3 albums but I now devote most of my time to teaching and the occasional solo gig.
Since passing my Cert PTC - European Piano Teachers Association 1 year teaching qualification 2015 - I have been teaching Piano, Harmony, Theory, Improvisation and Aural Recognition.
Perfect! Really enjoyed my lesson with Klay, I was sceptical about online lessons but didn’t feel a disconnect at all. Klay is inspiring, patient and passionate about music, what more could you want?
Excellent focus and clearly defined goals. In Addition, Chris is a very personable client to work with.
