I cannot begin to articulate how grateful I am to have found Andrew. His inspiring piano teaching has hooked me! Andrew has a real passion for the piano. He carefully selects music for his students to play that is both appropriately challenging, and enjoyable. Looking back over the last few years, I am astounded at the range of music I have learnt. Andrew makes learning to play the piano a real pleasure. I thoroughly look forward to every lesson.
About 10 years ago I decided like many middle aged people that I needed to try something new that I could work on at my own pace. Always wanting to be able to play a tune I decided to take a couple of piano lessons see how it went. As you can tell it well as I am still having them, and with Andrew’s guidance and the way he teaches, not only can I play the piano, I’ve learnt about music as well. I started knowing nothing and reading music to me was like an alien language. Now I have learnt and am still am learning about all types of music. Every step and every lesson is something new, from complete novice to where I am now is with great thanks to Andrew. Not only is learning fun with him, his knowledge and guidance is priceless. I’ve learnt so many brilliant pieces that I’ve been introduced to. Andrew’s lessons are very well structured, learning step by step but at my pace and more importantly it’s fun too. He has shown me that music is to be enjoyed by everyone and the sense of achievement is just brilliant. The support of a fantastic teacher is the key and it’s all thanks to Andrew. My mom always said she wanted one of her kids to be able to play an instrument. If it weren’t for Andrew it probably wouldn’t of happened.
Learning with Andrew is brilliant, I couldn’t ask for anyone better. You are never too old to start, I started aged 34 and Andrew has taught me so much I can’t thank him enough. However you don’t just get a fantastic teacher you get a good friend too.
I was a complete piano beginner this time last year and whilst I’m not up to performance level just yet, I am amazed at what I have achieved with Andrew’s patient and encouraging tuition. Teaching piano needs patience, encouragement and humour. Andrew possesses these in abundance and ‘pianofun’ is just what it says on the tin. I love playing. Thank you Andrew – you have enhanced my life!
I have been learning to play the piano with Andrew for over 3 years, his lessons are very relaxed and user friendly making learning to play the piano fun. Learning to play an instrument in my late 20s and into my 30s has been challenging but Andrew is a patient teacher and sympathetic to different students needs. As well as following the ABRSM piano standards for grading I have also been able to choose pieces and learn to play the music I like rather than following strict text books and have been hands on with music since my first lesson. I look forward to continuing my lessons into the future and advancing my skills becoming a more confident and competent piano player.
