« I have had several music teachers in my time but Eren definitely stands out - not only is his demeanour friendly and approach to piano teaching exemplary, he is able to tailor the sessions exactly to what you need whether it be passing a music exam, learning how to compose, or simply learning how to play from the beginning.

Former Jazz Pianist, Royal College of Music grad, focussing on non-classical genres.

Methodology

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach Jazz Piano / Improvisation / Theory / Harmony, Composition, Music Production and Songwriting to young adults and adults, from beginners to an advanced level including preparations for auditions to Film Music Programmes. I'm very flexible with the way of organising the lessons depending on each student's needs, while maintaining a fun, relaxed atmosphere.

I have had several music teachers in my time but Eren definitely stands out - not only is his demeanour friendly and approach to piano teaching exemplary, he is able to tailor the sessions exactly to what you need whether it be passing a music exam, learning how to compose, or simply learning how to play from the beginning. I sought Eren specifically to learn jazz piano and within a month or two, I had not only grasped the basics but because of his enthusiasm and dedication, I learnt so many things about music that inspired me and that keep me inspired me to this day.

It's a pleasure to recommend Eren as a piano teacher. As someone who had studied classical music, and self-taught blues/boogie-woogie, I wanted to branch out and learn jazz piano. It was really hard to start, but gradually, and through well-chosen exercises he got me to start to understand how jazz works. I still have a very long way to go, and I've now moved house away from him, but I will be eternally grateful for Eren's grounding in this complex topic. Thank you Eren! By the way, he doesn't just teach jazz. He seems to possess a deep knowledge of many musical styles, which I think really helps give a broad context when learning one style in particular.
