I wish I found Ollie earlier, he's taught me so much! I always come back from my lesson buzzing with ideas and inspiration.
I can't believe how much I've improved with Ollie. His teaching methods are so simple and everything he says makes complete sense. Thanks Ollie.
Thursday nights are the best - my piano lesson! Ollie has a really cool flat kitted out with his piano and studio equipment. We are flying through the ABRSM grades at the moment..... soon I'll be a pro!
