Personal Description:

Hi! I am a friendly, patient and qualified piano teacher with several years teaching experience who will travel to teach at your home. I am a composer for film and TV, and come from a music production background. I've written pieces of music for shows such as 'Bear Grylls: Escape From Hell' and 'The Taste' with Nigella Lawson, as well as writing regularly for music libraries such as Universal, BMG, Shutterstock, and Sync Tracks. I grew up learning classical piano, and now do all my composing work from my keyboard in my studio. I teach all ages, and feel that I am a passionate and inspiring teacher. Students most suitable for me are beginners to intermediate in piano, beginners for guitar, all levels for music production, beginners to intermediate for theory.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught for several years, mostly children though I have taught a handful of adults too and am at ease with both.


Rob is such a wonderful piano teacher. He taught my son, in our home, for 18 months; from absolute beginner. He made every lesson fun and interesting for Leo… and it was super inspiring to hear Rob play - he’s a beautiful musician.  I highly recommend Rob and trust him completely.

Rob taught our son Tom aged 9 for 1 year in Melbourne… would highly recommend him. Inspiring and a fantastic musician, he engaged well with our son and we were sorry to see him head back to the UK.

Alison Giles

The piano work Rob did with my son made a significant difference to his playing ability, with a marked improvement in both his attitude and motivation towards learning music in general. Rob's teaching style really made a huge difference and I am sure will have a lasting effect on my son's musical education for the rest of his life. A very big thank you to Rob.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a good knowledge of many genres and will tailor my teaching depending on what you would like to focus on. In lessons I focus on having fun whilst making sure to teach the practicalities of playing as well as music theory and knowledge of musical styles. Fun and focused. I like to find out what the student likes listening to or enjoys in some other way, maybe they love a certain film or computer game and I can transcribe or purchase the music for them so they can enjoy learning to play more due to their connection with the music.
