If you are looking for first class piano tuition then Fred is, without exception the contact you need. I cannot recommend anyone more committed and inspiring. Fred's passion for music is infectious and I would thoroughly recommend him as a teacher to both young and old.

Frederick Scott is a great teacher and a great musician. My children love learning with him and are making excellent progress. He is extremely encouraging and positive. His lessons are very enjoyable

I think learning with Fred is like being a kite sent flying in the sky, freely and joyfully with abundance of fulfilment, but with a string attached so can always travel safely and never worry about going the wrong way. My elder son just passed ABRSM Grade 8 exam in the spring. It's been an amazing music journey for them, which is really what learning piano should be all about!

Although hugely fulfilled by my role as an airline captain it occurred to me that a little self-indulgent stress buster might be welcome. A visit to the local piano shop provided the answer – an introduction to Frederick Scott, the very best in inspirational tutors.

I started playing the piano as an antidote to the stresses of corporate life… and it works! Lessons with Fred are really more like a weekly meeting with a good friend who happens to be a keyboard genius.

Having such a hectic working and family life, I never thought I'd fulfil my ambition to learn Jazz piano. I decided to give Fred's lessons a try and now I'm playing my favourite standards.

I'd been wanting to take my diploma exam for many years and Fred helped me take lessons around my work schedule, they were always great fun so never felt like work!I had a six month window in which I could realistically learn my pieces – I wasn't sure it was possible but wanted to do it. Fred encouraged me all the way, and amazingly I got a Distinction for the exam! He is a fantastic teacher, great at helping with confidence and tailoring the lesson to how he can best help you.

I returned to piano lessons recently after a gap of 25 years! Fred's effective coaching style has built my technique, knowledge and confidence to the point where I am back playing in front of an audience and taking higher level exams.

“ Jon had been composing, which he showed to Fred who quickly assessed Jon interests, and began to stretch him further. He is now a keen musician with individual tastes and enthusiasm for the piano & Composing. Fred is truly inspirational, he has the ability to identify nurture and bring out the very best of your musical talents.
Jon is currently a 2011 winner of the Royal Opera House Composition competition, what a testament to Fred.”

M
Mrs. S.Aston

Our son was grade 2 when he started his piano lessons with Fred and his progress has been incredible; winning a musical scholarship, competitions to recently passing grade 8 with high marks. Our daughter's progress is similar.
Fred is very calm, patient and flexible towards children's moods and requests.
There are quite a few piano teachers around but not many like Fred. We highly recommend him.
