« I asked Nick for lessons after playing alongside him in a local orchestra and being amazed by his superb violin playing and leadership. I have really enjoyed every lesson with Nick and have found his fantastic musicianship and talent for his instruments inspiring, encouraging me to work hard. Whilst there is no pressure in Nick’s lessons, I have received loads of constructive feedback that has definitely benefitted my playing and helped me to understand the music I am covering. Nick is always happy to prioritise any of my concerns or queries within a piece of music during lessons, and I have improved so much in the 2 months I have been having lessons with him. I would really recommend Nick as a teacher whether you are feeling a bit of a lack of motivation to practice your instrument or are looking to further develop your musicianship ( be it performance, musical theory or technique ). »

Enthusiastic music student offering violin and piano lessons in South Wales -Jazz - Classical - Aural training

Methodology

My priority is always making sure that you enjoy playing the piano, to make sure of this I'll help you learn how to play the pieces you love. For my 12 year old student, I wrote easy arrangements of Star Wars and Minecraft. Early on I also aim to give you an understanding of music theory, which is very important. I'm very fascinated with jazz and improvisation, I find it useful for developing musicality and exploring different sounds of the piano. I'm also happy to help you progress through either the trinity or ABRSM examinations. I'm quite a flexible teacher, so if you need help with your GCSEs, A levels, composing, arranging or improvisation I'm happy to dedicate lessons to that as well.

Experience

I am a music student with a strong background in performing both on Piano and Violin. I regularly accompany choirs and soloists on the piano. I have taught 12 students regularly over the past 5 years, helping them with both their graded exams, and general musical confidence. Two of my recent students passed their ABRSM grade 8 exams with distinction. I'm happy to teach all ages.

I highly recommend Nick as a teacher. I've already learnt a lot with him and have gotten to a much higher standard than I thought I would ever get to with my piano playing.

Nick is a superb and incredibly gifted musician, and was more than able to supplement my second study at University level. Perhaps more importantly he has a way of explaining things that really helps technique click, is incredibly patient and has consistently helped me to improve.
