Learn Piano

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 I'm very busy, but please do send an email to enquire about lessons.

Tell me what days and times suit you, and I'll let you know if a potential lesson slot becomes available.

Vouchers are available, and increasingly popular as a creative gift idea.

Online lessons are also available, if you're not near Dundee!

My rate is currently £14 per 30 minute lesson. I am self-employed, all earnings are declared to HMRC. Also see my listing on MusicTeachers.co.uk

I have full PVG Scheme membership and experience of teaching piano to a wide range of people. My focus is on musicality and enjoyment, though I also passed ABRSM Grade 5 Piano, and ABRSM Grade 5 Theory (Distinction) - and have trained to Grade 8 level so far.

Over the years I have arranged a lot of music for piano - see a range of pieces here.

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 6 and beyond within 4 years.

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