Well versed in a variety of styles, I teach jazz, swing, blues, funk, pop, R&B, soul, latin, rock and classical music. My teaching method is to focus on whatever type of music the student loves most, and to work around that. I believe that many people give up their dream of playing an instrument simply because they aren’t inspired enough, so my goal is to instil a love for music, whatever that means personally for each individual student.
Lessons are fun and playful, and I’ll have you improvising and jamming within the first hour!
I teach online via Zoom or from my home near West Finchley station on the Northern line.
One of our best tutors! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and response guaranteed. John will plan your first lesson with care.
Originally honing my skills on the British jazz scene and playing residencies in various restaurants and bars around the country, I then went on to tour the world for the past five years playing jazz on cruise ships, hotels and festivals. I now live in London playing regularly at Ronnie Scotts, The Vortex and other jazz venues across the UK. I am currently pursuing a master’s at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
Perfect! Really nice guy, knows his stuff, and great at joining together the musical dots in my head.
Perfect! John is an engaging and professional tutor , we are very pleased and would recommend
Perfect! John is a very talented musician, teaching jazz piano with energy and enthusiasm. He's also a good listener and very patient which is so helpful when you're working through the theory of jazz. He offers practical tips and strategies and you come away from an online lesson with a clear plan of what to practice and how to practice it effectively. Brilliant!
Perfect! Fantastic teacher. Patient, super-talented player across multiple styles, and a genuinely nice guy. I've had several piano teachers in London before, and John has been a cut above.
Would thoroughly recommend to anyone really, no matter the level.
Perfect! Excellent tutor! Teaches in a way which is engaging and is able to cover a lot of content in a short space of time. Look forward to attending lessons regularly soon
I started taking online lessons with John during the lockdown and they really kept me going through the difficult time. Highly recommended :)
Taking me from zero knowledge of the piano, over the past two years John has shown me how to recognise chord structures to the point where I can now listen to songs and play them by ear, and am playing in a band.
John helped me revive my passion for blues when I hadn't played in almost 20 years! Highly recommended.
