The Art of Playing the Piano

The piano is such a versatile instrument, that naturally everyone wants to write for it. It’s always been a centerpiece in both the classical and popular music world. No matter which instrument you play it is always helpful to have some basic keyboard stills under your belt. Learning the piano is highly fulfilling and is a fantastic way to relax. Like many things, to it takes a long time to master an instrument, but when the basics are in place, progress is easy.

Music Theory Lessons

An essential, if daunting, part of any musician’s arsenal; theory can help unlock the secrets of your chosen instrument and understand how to fit into different musical styles. I can help you with the rudiments, right through to the more advanced aspects. This can help with song writing, performance and even change how you listen to and appreciate music.

Music Technology & Production Lessons

Rarely taught privately, learning how to write and produce your own music is incredibly gratifying. Areas covered include a variety of topics that are essential to know, including looking at sound design with electronic synthesisers, exploring modern production techniques and experimenting with recording equipment. I work with industry standard software, Logic Pro X and am able to offer feedback and mentoring on your own music.
