Robert offers a FREE first / introductory lesson!
I am a Royal College of Music graduate, with both a piano teaching diploma and a performing diploma equivalent as part of my degree(Lond.).I strive to give engaging lessons, and have a long-standing reputation for inspiring young pupils. I spent 15 years as an Assistant Director of Music in a boarding school, and continue to work in music education as well as teaching my private pupils at home. I also studied composition and keyboard skills to degree standard which enhance my teaching skills at every level.
I have taught the piano to well over 250 children, specialising in the 7-13 age range and teaching many from scratch. I conservatively estimate I have given over 24,000 lessons!

I absolutely love to see my pupils having fun with their learning. This makes teaching such a joy, and is a key factor.
Behind this approach I have a strong belief in learning through music;
I believe the study of music teaches us a particular understanding of the self, as well as providing a unique form of expression, discovery, communication and enrichment to our lives. I also believe it has far-reaching and deep educational values, regardless of whether it is continued through life.
I do remain open in my teaching to pupil's interests, e.g. by making many of my own piano arrangements to this end. I would however stress the importance of structured study at the beginning in particular, and the development of proper technique and reading ability. I try to maintain a positive and lively approach – if it’s fun for me, then hopefully for your child also! I do however like my pupils to be mindful that taking on any long and meaningful journey means taking on the lows with the highs. Achievement, progress, enjoyment and fulfilment will inevitably result through study and practice.
My free first lesson is for Child/Parent combos and takes the form of a general meeting and discussion, though will include some tuition.
