Classical/Jazz Piano playing or music theory lessons at home from Grade 8 qualified teacher with diverse performance experience

Methodology

Through 20 years of tuition I've developed foundations of good technique and an understanding of music theory. These basics are hugely important in order to improve quickly but I'm fully aware that lessons need to be enjoyable in order for anyone to stick through them so I'll also ask what you would like to achieve and dedicate time to working towards these goals - whether you want to learn jazz improvisation or cover Everglow by Coldplay!

Background

My piano teaching experience has been mostly casual, teaching friends at home and at university. However I have experience teaching English to children as well as experience teaching entrepreneurship fundamentals to adults which has allowed me to develop patience and strong lesson planning skills.

For examples of me playing please see the presentation video, recorded just before Christmas 2016

Mike's CV

Music has been my passion outside of work and education since I started learning guitar at the age of 7. During my childhood I completed many of the ABRSM music grades, reaching Grade 8 Piano, Grade 6 Guitar and Grade 5 Music Theory as well as achieving an A* at Music GCSE. Since then I've picked up the bass guitar and reached a very high standard with this through performing in musical productions, my party band and my university's award-winning big band.

But what does all of this mean to you? It means that I've got a solid all-round musical knowledge spanning from theory and technique to improvisation and musical awareness when performing in a band. It also means that I will be teaching you what I love doing and I will endeavour to carry that enthusiasm into each and every lesson!

Rachel

Mike is a fantastic music tutor. He is very organised, driven, motivated and professional. He wants to help any music learner achieve their very best. He is a very down-to-earth and amiable person, and is brilliant at passing on his love of music to others. I highly recommend lessons with Mike.

Peter

Mike gave me several lessons over summer, he is a very patient and knowledgeable teacher and I would recommend him to anyone.
