When I first started piano lessons my teacher forced music theory and boring melodies on me. Studying Live Performance at College and Production at University I learnt more about technique, theory and understanding through enjoyment! I like to know what my students like and enjoy and I create a lesson plan around their individual needs.
I have been teaching piano for 5 years mentoring students from age 6 to 45! I enjoy watching each of them grow and continue to push them to their greatest potentials. If it's learning to play by ear or working towards Grade 5 theory, there is a challenge for everyones individual needs that I will help you overcome.
Since 2016 I have worked with summer camps in America as the Performing Arts Program Director and during the winter period work as a Musical Director with theatre companies. I have performed in the local music scene as a solo artist and session musician for the last 5 years. I am currently a 3rd year student in Music Production.
Due to current restrictions all lessons will be online.

Declan has been my daughter's piano tutor for 6 months now. He has tutored her on Skype throughout lockdown and we are now back to lessons in person. Declan is a great tutor and has been fantastic at helping my daughter develop in her skills and theory but also keeping the lessons fun and her interested.
I have been taking vocal coaching lessons with Declan and I have no hesitation in recommending him as a tutor. Declan is very skilled, knowledgeable and patient and provides feedback and advice on improving vocal techniques. My singing voice and confidence has improved greatly through working with Declan.
Declan delivered a series of piano lessons for me. He was a good teacher; patient and considerate with a clear insight into my needs as a pupil. I'd be happy to recommend him to others eager to start learning or improve their piano playing.
