I am a creative teacher with a comprehensive and flexible curriculum. I have a good sense of humour too. I teach many styles to all ages and levels. I teach sight-reading, playing by ear (figuring out tunes, improvisation), composing, theory, music history, and prepare students for exams (if appropriate). My students smile a lot.
I have been teaching for about 17 years! Many of my students have made music an integral part of their lives. Many have done well in exams, in concerts that I arranged, and some went on to study music at degree level and made careers in music.
I have an MA and a BA (Hons). I have a Montessori diploma. These qualifications have enabled me develop a comprehensive approach to education and at the same time to focus on the unique interests of the student.
Jonathan has taught the piano to our son since the beginning when he was 7 years old. He has managed to nudge our son into loving piano music and making him own the instrument with all its potentialities rather than the all-too-often rot learning seen in many instances. Myself an amateur musician, this has been a pleasure to see my son develop his taste for music and piano playing and discover that classical music is a living art.
Two of my children (aged 9 and 6) learn singing and piano with Jonathan. My oldest has had lessons with him for nearly 4 years. They both very much enjoy their lessons and are progressing well. Jonathan has a wonderful manner with them, makes the lessons fun - particularly important for the younger children - and motivates them. He also communicates well with me re their progress and his plans for them. I would wholeheartedly recommend Jonathan.
