I teach beginners in a fun and easy way to understand. You can learn to play on a beautiful grand piano! All ages are welcome from beginners to advanced (up to teaching diploma).
I aim to ensure pupils can read music in both hands and that they understand the basics of keyboard harmony. I encourage all styles – classical, jazz and pop and am happy to help pupils play favourite pieces or songs they are interested in or inspired by. I’ve made many arrangements and transcriptions of pieces for pupils which I hope has inspired them and given them great enjoyment.
I encourage the necessary technique, approach, skills and interpretation aiming towards ABRSM and Trinity Board exams. I encourage pupils to perform and share their music at pupils' concerts of which I have arranged many over the years.
I’m an experienced DBS enhanced checked piano teacher living in Wadhurst, East Sussex with my wife Lorna.
I have a BA and MMus from Bristol University. I'm a concert pianist (performed solo recitals at venues like St. James, Piccadilly), composer (reviewed by MusicWeb International) and published arranged of Dudley Moore's music with Faber.
I’ve coached many pupils to success in their ABRSM and Trinity Board exams for piano, electronic keyboard and music theory. I’ve also coached GCSE to A grade level. I also have experience of teaching children electronic keyboard in London schools .
I co-founded Harrow Summer Music and have presented pupils' concerts for many years.
I've also worked at independent and state schools as an accompanist and examination pianist.

Steve has been teaching my daughter from complete beginner from about the age of nine. He is an excellent teacher and very good with young children. My daughter is now nearly 13 years old and Steve's good work continues. In addition to the usual grading syllabuses he has been doing some off syllabus work with her (a new arrangement of Mamma Mia!)
I highly recommend Steve.
