Over seventy pupils from the age of 5 to 60+ attend weekly half-hour or hour-long lessons in piano performance (Beginner to Diploma) and music theory (Grade 1 to 8). Small group theory classes are also available, taking beginners to ABRSM Grade 5 (essential to progress to Grade 6+ in performance) over the period of a year. Peter additionally provides tuition for GCSE Music and aids his pupils in preparing for their GCSE, AS- and A-Level exams in music. Exam accompaniment is also provided from Grade 1 to Diploma level.
Alongside receiving his instrumental training from two concert pianists, Peter completed a GCSE and A-Level in music before achieving a Bachelor of Music Honours degree, then furthering his musical education with the completion of a Masters of Arts in Music, specifically concerned with authentic performance of the piano. This training, coupled with his research in piano pedagogy and continuous professional development in the form of a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology, has lead to Peters adoption of efficient teaching and practicing techniques with focus being placed on each pupil gaining a high level of independence as early as possible. These techniques allow pupils to progress quickly while still, most importantly, understanding the music they are learning. Furthermore Peter has experience teaching pupils with additional requirements such as Dyspraxia, ADHD and Dyslexia.
Over the years Peters pupils have maintained an outstanding success rate in approximately 400 ABRSM exams. His pupils have also enjoyed success in competition at both local and national level. Furthermore a number of his pupils have gone on to successfully teach the piano.
