Notes:

I'm a Royal College of Music trained pianist and conductor, passionate about what it takes to make music really 'live':

“I started lessons with Michael to complete my ABRSM piano grades, I am proud to say that under his tuition I achieved a Distinction for my Grade 8. Michael is an excellent teacher, not only for exam coaching but he has taught me to master various complicated techniques, play with greater expression and overcome the challenges of performance. Michael is an established concert pianist and I find his extensive knowledge of music styles/composers, his experience of performance and passion completely inspiring. Lessons are fun and interactive, yet thought-provoking when exploring serious pieces. I really enjoy my lessons with Michael and would highly recommend his piano tuition.”

MY EXPERIENCE

• Private coaching from 2006 onwards with students of ages from 6-66 of ability range from complete beginners through to university/conservatoire level.

• 100% pass rate for all ABRSM grades, many of whom have gained distinctions.

• Full DBS Checked and I take annual Child Safeguarding Courses as part of my youth orchestra conducting work.

WHAT I OFFER

• Music coaching from Royal College of Music trained conductor and pianist.

• Practical understanding of technique with foundations in Western and Russian schools of piano playing. Non-intimidating, and right from the start.

• Sight-reading, theory, aural and memorisation are all integral to my approach, complementing each other.

WHERE

Due to Covid-19, I am currently teaching online only. With the student’s permission, all lessons are recorded giving the student great resource to draw on, personalised to them. Combined with my multi-camera setup and the ability to repeat watch, in many ways it makes it easier to demonstrate a technical challenge than in person.
