PIANO LESSONS

BEING SELF-TAUGHT, HAVING STARTED TO PLAY ON THE VILLAGE PUBS PIANO AT THE AGE OF 10, I TEACH BOTH THEORY AND READING MUSIC AS WELL AS BEING VERY PASSIONATE ABOUT IMPROVISATION AND MUSICIANSHIP SKILLS. 

LESSONS ARE TAILORED TO EACH INDIVIDUAL STUDENT BUT USUALLY START OFF WITH FINGER EXERCISES, WARM-UPS, CHORD EXERCISES, MUSICIANSHIP SKILLS AND A FUN IMPROVISATION, GIVING STUDENTS NOT ONLY THE SKILLS TO PLAY BUT TO BE AN ALL ROUND GOOD MUSICIAN. THE BULK OF PIANO LESSONS ARE SPENT LEARNING SONGS AND PIECES THAT ARE RELEVANT TO EACH STUDENT.  

TESTIMONIAL:

"SHANE IS SUCH AN AMAZING MUSIC TEACHER, WHEN I FIRST STARTED PLAYING THE PIANO I KNEW NOTHING BUT NURSERY RHYMES WHICH DISCOURAGED ME FROM PLAYING. IT CAUSED ME TO DREAD MY LESSONS WITH MY OLD TEACHER, HOWEVER WHEN I WAS INTRODUCED TO SHANE AND STARTED LEARNING WITH HIM IT COMPLETELY CHANGED MY MINDSET. DURING THE PAST YEAR I HAVE LEARNT MORE AMAZING PIECES THAN I COULD HAVE EVER IMAGINED AND I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE HIM AS MY TEACHER" - LEYLA, WAKEFIELD, AGE 17
