Jeremy

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.

If you want to find out more about my performance work, please check out my Performance page and read my interviews with The Cross-Eyed Pianist and The Local.

Piano

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. However, I am a firm believer in the premise, 'practice makes perfect', and that progression facilitates enjoyment of the instrument. So 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.

Theory

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

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.

Testimonials

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.

Suzy, Mother to Ella aged 14

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.

Nigel, Father to Nicky aged 10

He is a brilliant teacher… inspiring, patient and very talented.

Susanna

Jeremy is a great teacher for our 6 year old who is just starting out at piano. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and very patient. He adapts to our son’s interests which makes practicing fun!

Tracy, Mother to Henrik aged 6

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”.

Hannah, Mother to Ned aged 10

Jeremy är musikalisk, energisk och positiv. Han är en mycket bra pedagog med en fantastisk känsla och kunskap om pianospel, musikhistoria och musikteori. Han är den perfekta läraren till min tonåring som älskar att spela piano.

Maria, mor till Kalle, 16 år

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.

Ginny, Mother to Jack aged 15

When I began taking piano lessons with Jeremy, I had some piano experience. However, it had been years since I played. It’s now for almost 2 years that I am having bi-weekly sessions with Jeremy and I really enjoy playing piano again. Jeremy is an extremely talented pianist with very effective teaching methods. He helps me to shape my musicality and technique by letting me choose the pieces I like. We then go through them together, analyse the theory behind and discuss specific techniques and annotations in the piece. Jeremy adapts to my level and is always challenging me to become better. I highly recommend Jeremy as a piano teacher.

Dorothea

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!

David

Döm om min förvåning när jag i somras fick några pianolektioner i födelsedagspresent av min fru. Som barn spelade jag klassiskt piano i kommunala musikskolan genom hela grundskolan, men hittade aldrig riktigt spelglädjen och slutade ta lektioner som 15-åring. De följande 15 åren blev det Tomtarnas vaktparad fyrhändigt med min far varje julafton och inte så mycket mer. Drygt 30 år gammal fick jag min svärmors piano och plötsligt var det roligt att spela. Jag har alltsedan dess, i 20 år, spelat någon timma per vecka och då mest ackord, men det har låtit ungefär likadant de senaste åren – ingen nämnvärd utveckling. Sen började jag ta lektioner med start tidig höst 2019. Det stämde direkt. Jeremy var lyhörd för vad jag ville med mitt spelande och han har hjälpt mig att utveckla ackompanjemangspelet. Vi pratar också mycket funktionell teori vilket jag tycker är väldigt stimulerande och roligt. Jag blir aldrig någon pianovirtuos, men mitt spelande har utvecklats under hösten och framförallt har det blivit väldigt mycket roligare att spela. Jag ser fram emot vårens lektioner. Tack Jeremy.

Pär-Ola

Both kind and endlessly patient – she now genuinely looks forward to piano lessons!

Rachel, Mother to Mia aged 9

I started lessons with Jeremy as a total beginner in my mid-forties. A year later and thanks to his incredible patience, I am totally hooked. If, like me, you are someone who wants to learn the piano a little later in life, then I cannot recommend Jeremy’s friendly, enthusiastic and professional approach enough.

Adrian

He is a patient, enthusiastic, organised and inspirational teacher and we cannot recommend him highly enough. Thank you Jeremy!

Amanda, Mother to Ellen aged 13

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.
