Mike - Battersea - Jazz Improvisation

Methodology

If you're looking for a highly adaptable, hard-working, enthusiastic and dedicated teacher, committed to bringing students to their full potential through a relaxed, positive and enjoyable approach, then you've come to the right place!

Many different musical styles are available including Classical, Jazz, Latin, Pop, Jazz Theory and Composition, Advanced Aural Training, Theory and Musicianship.

My tertiary qualification is a Bachelor of Music (Jazz Piano) 1st Class Honours completed at Australian National University, Canberra

My preferred teaching situation is via video call online, though I am also able to teach at student's homes in Battersea.

As of June 2020, my current availability is Tuesdays and Fridays and potentially weekend daytimes.

I am currently teaching ages 7-70, beginner to advanced, specialising in the ABRSM Jazz Piano syllabus, although my improvisation experience extends to other instruments.

Each student's learning needs are highly individual, and so I believe the way to achieve the best results is to create the circumstances in which the student can learn for themselves, and which inspire the student to continue learning throughout their later lives.
