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.

Vouchers are available, and increasingly popular as a creative gift idea. Online lessons are also available, if you're a bit further from Dundee.



Each student has their own personalised learning page - with a growing record of all the pieces and skills they are working on, and links to help progress.

Plus there's lesson notes, with practise tips and aims.

As well as scales and chords, music reading and theory, we can cover techniques like playing by ear or improvising. I can also help prepare for exams if required (more about grades).



We can look at classical music, blues, rock, jazz or whatever you like - and I'll share advice from 25 years of piano-playing (+ 10 years of learning before that).

Some examples of what piano students have achieved:

  • From knowing nothing about piano, to playing a range of tunes in a year.
  • Learning tips for playing blues, playing by ear and improvising.
  • From beginner to Grade 6 and beyond within 4 years.
