Ho Wan Jeremy Leung

Teacher

Hi, my name is Jeremy, I am a friendly professional musician from England. In addition to my teaching, I am a classical and jazz pianist playing with a variety of ensembles from orchestras to trios.

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!

    I aim to encourage students to develop at their own pace to play with musicality and confidence. I guide my students step by step to learn new skills and set weekly homework practice tasks. I provide students with a solid grounding in technical and stylistic aspects of piano playing, together with an understanding of cultural and historical contexts, and general musicianship.

    My primary concern is to make lessons as enjoyable as possible, as I believe this stimulates learning. My teaching style is relaxed and flexible. Students are encouraged to work towards graded exams but this is not obligatory. However, I am a firm believer in the premise, 'practise makes perfect', and all my students are encouraged to practise regularly.

    Learning to play the piano has many benefits: it can improve concentration, develop and strengthen memory, and improve mental and physical co-ordination. It also offers a deep sense of personal achievement, enjoyment and self-fulfilment.

    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.

    A longstanding ABRSM benchmark is that a pass at Grade 5 or above in Theory of Music must be obtained before candidates can enter for Grades 6, 7 or 8 Practical exams. I believe that a thorough understanding of the elements of music is essential for a full and satisfying performance at these higher grades.
