Multi instrumentalist, Matilda brought her school Cornet to show me!!
Tomorrow we’re going to record a piano duet for you (but maybe a cornet and piano duet soon!)

Can you play any other instruments? My first study was the accordion 🪗 many, many years ago!!


Just a Spoonful of Sugar, from Mary Poppins 😀

Well done Amelia 🤩👏🏻 🌂 💼


How amazing to have the confidence to record a performance after after only 4 lessons.

Charles played the piano informally at school and has just taken up lessons again recently as an adult.

I see a very good pianist in the making 🤩

👏🏻 🇪🇬 🎹


A big pitch raise on a little tiny Zender! I could barely fit my knees under it, and I’m very short 🙃


We have new availability with David at 6:40pm on Mondays, for an adult or child beginner to advanced.

Lessons start at £18 for 30 minutes


🌟🌟🌟Piano Trio 🌟🌟🌟
Mother and daughter Amy and Emma performing Firefly 🦋

Emma doesn’t even have lessons, but had a go at one of Amy’s old pieces last week for fun so we decided to turn it into a trio 🤩


New student Poppie performing ‘A Little Bird at the Window’ 🐦 well done 👏🏻 😀 🎶


Clare’s wonderful debut performance of ‘Russian Dance’ after only 5 lessons 🤩

Thank you 🙏🏼


Just a reminder that there are no lessons with David this week.

He’s working away for grand piano regulation, aural tuning training, and examinations with Yamaha in Milton Keynes.

He will be back, and will be even more qualified next week on Monday 18th 😁🌟🎹


Martha performing ‘Rabbits Lullaby’ (with Lily on the doorbell!)



I’m so proud of Amelia for all of her independent learning over the summer.

She’s self taught herself two more Disney duets (Lets Go Fly a Kite and Beauty and the Beast), and she’s racing through her ABRSM grade 1 performance pieces and theory workbook 💪🏻

Well done 🌟🤩🌈

I’ve treated my U3 to concert pitch (for a change 🤣) and a good polish!

Isn’t she looking sparkly and inviting for an evening with Bach, Brahms and Debussy 🌟🤩🌟

Happy Friday everyone 👌🏼
