I teach, and have taught, all ages and abilities, classical, jazz and contemporary styles of piano in a relaxed and friendly environment. Whether playing for fun or wanting structured lessons to pass ABRSM and TRINITY exams to distinction, I tailor my lessons to each student!
Music Theory lessons are mainly based around the ABRSM syllabus for those wanting to take the exam or just broaden their music theory knowledge. I also cover topics from the AQA and OCR syllabus for those taking A Level or GCSE Music, as well as teaching Advanced Music Theory for BA Music students.
Composition lessons are aimed at students, studio owners, songwriters and anyone starting out or aspiring to compose. I can provide GCSE, A Level and BA Music composition lessons. If you are looking into composition as a hobby, no formal music education is required. During the series of lessons, you can choose to cover any or all of the topics I offer.

As a teacher he showed a mix of empathy towards my teenage son (who had both exam pressures and a desire to play some challenging contemporary rock!), along with professionalism to maintain a series of lessons that provided direction and improvement on skills, whilst maintaining a balance of different musical genres. I would not hesitate to recommend Jeremy.
Jeremy is a enthusiastic and charismatic tutor who has bespoke lessons for each student. He is very good at working with the student to cover the material they want to play. Whether it be formal prep for exams or messing around with the latest pop hit, Jeremy has a fantastic approach and knows how to utilise the lesson to achieve the fullest potential. He was a pleasure as a tutor, and any new students looking for tuition Jeremy is a no-brainer!
Jeremy taught my son piano for a year and a half. My son has become a good piano player with Jeremy's help. Jeremy's calm and encouraging style were a big factor in my son's improvement. Whilst working with Jeremy my son successfully passed two grades, took part in a concert, and became proficient in a range of different musical styles. I heartily recommend Jeremy as a teacher.
Jeremy set the perfect pace for a novice and progressively applied just the right pressure to move me forward. Looking back over the last few months I can see I have learnt sooooo much and become more confident in my ability for the future. Thank you.
He is a patient, enthusiastic, organised and inspirational teacher and we cannot recommend him highly enough. Thank you Jeremy!
He manages his lessons in a 'student led' manner and has been very perceptive in gauging the needs and personality of my 10 year old. I can highly recommend him as a sensitive and talented teacher. Ned says “Jeremy is a legend”.
Both kind and endlessly patient - she now genuinely looks forward to piano lessons!
Jeremy has been fantastic in motivating Ella to practice more regularly and to experiment with different types of music. She really enjoys her lessons and has made great progress since she has had Jeremy as her teacher.
He is a brilliant teacher... inspiring, patient and very talented.
