Learn Piano

Lessons, tips and more

We do fun lessons to help you learn how to play the piano, including scales, chords, reading music and more.

I'm based in the west end of Dundee, students of all ages come to me for lessons every weekday.

Currently we're very busy, but please do send an email to enquire about lessons.

Let me know what days/times you are available, and we'll try to work something out.

Here's a selection of feedback from a recent survey of my piano students:

I passed ABRSM Grade 5 Piano, and ABRSM Grade 5 Theory (Distinction) - and have trained to Grade 7 level so far... I have full PVG Scheme membership and experience of teaching piano to a wide range of people.

My rate is currently £14 per 30 minute lesson.

I am registered self-employed, all earnings are declared to HMRC.

As well as scales and chords, we cover other useful tips and techniques like playing by ear and improvising. I can help you prepare for exams if required.

We can look at classical music, blues, rock, jazz or whatever you like - and I'll share advice from 20 years of piano-playing (+ 10 years of learning before that).

Some examples of what piano students have done:

  • From knowing nothing about piano, to playing a range of tunes in a year.
  • Learning tips for playing blues and improvising.
  • From beginner to Grade 2 in 16 months, then Grade 4 in a further year.

Learning for grade exams: more about grades, plus specific pages for grade 1, grade 2, grade 3, grade 4, grade 5, grade 6.
