Information About John - Cardiff teacher - (39 reviews)
This is how 3 referees rated John:
I have been playing keyboard and piano since age 8 and have enjoyed playing ensemble pieces and contributing original piano compositions for film and playing in various bands. I currently play keyboards and synths in a local Cardiff band.
I have been teaching music part time for several years now and have successfully helped many private students to pass graded examinations and pursue music theory and practice at a higher level. I have also been able to help casual students to improve their improvisation and adapt their playing to different genres e.g. blues, jazz and cocktail piano.
I have a very flexible, student centred approach to my teaching and always try to provide lessons in a relaxed, friendly manner. Depending on the student, I offer a traditional step-by-step theory based approach and/or alternative approaches based on my personal way of thinking about and visualising musical patterns and structures.

Enjoying the lessons
very knowledgable and gentle mannered. My son seems very comfortable with him, communicates well with him and is very keen to learn more and impress John. John assessed where he is currently at in terms of what he can play. He is happy to take a formal or more informal approach depending on how your child learns or what your aims are with the tuition. John has been reliable so far and I am happy to recommend him to others.
I would like to thank you for replying to our request so quickly. I am really impressed with your professionalism. My daughter is very happy with your approach and technique of teaching physics. I believe, with your help she will be achieving her full potential with physics. I wish we found you earlier.
Thank you John.
We seem to be making good progress with the past paper material and I'm sure this will be reflected in the summer exam results.
Earlier in the year I felt like I might have got a E/D but thanks to join I feel like I have the potential to walk out of my exam with an A.
John is proving to be reliable and very helpful to my 15 year old daughter.
