« Yak is an amazing piano teacher and mentor who really cares about his students. He´s highly experienced and very professional which you can see in the results and impact he has had on my musical journey. He pushed me to do my best to pass the audition for music college and helped me to understand the emotional and technical details and expression in my music pieces. The best part is that he´s very kind, patient and has a great sense humour. It took me a while to find the right teacher and I feel extremely lucky that I found Yak who´s a one-in-a-million tutor and I would recommend him to anyone looking for solid and enjoyable music education.- Maddy »

Bespoke piano lessons for all ages by university lecturer in West London

Methodology

I provide piano tuition for all ages at my studio in Acton/Chiswick. My piano lessons are always bespoke, catering for every student’s needs and abilities individually. I offer a wide range of musical styles suiting beginners and professionals alike. I have a 100% success rate with all students wishing to pass ABRSM exams. I am fully DBS checked, also working with internationally acclaimed performers and holding a senior lecturer position at a renowned music university.

Experience

I live and breathe music ever since I could walk. I have worked hard to establish myself as a professional musician, and now that I've had the privilege of working with world-class performers it seems only natural wishing to give back. Nurturing young talent and guiding adult students enables me to see good progress and hopefully instil my joy of music.

It is my absolute pleasure to recommend Yak. His skill and expertise have really improved my playing and made me rediscover my love of piano. He is incredibly flexible with regards to styles and has allowed me to shape my own lessons so that I can focus on elements that I require. Yak constantly encourages me to improve and structures homework in an engaging, not tedious way.

I am writing to confirm that Yak has been Ayah’s piano tutor since October 2015. During this time Ayah has developed as a pianist and Yak has played a crucial role in nurturing her confidence, allowing her to complete her Grade 1 Piano qualification, and to this day continues to provide an excellent teaching service.
