Tuition for Students

As a university music student or first study pianist at the conservatoire, you will advance your technique, develop effective mental and physiological practice methods, gain performance experience and explore important career options specific to your ambitions. In-depth tuition in music theory, musicianship and composition will also supplement your formal training in becoming a professional musician.

Tuition for Children

Engaging lessons, age appropriate professionalism and expert teaching methods ensure your child has the best start to their piano studies. While having the chance to explore all musical styles, from Classical and Jazz to Rock and Pop, ABRSM and Trinity graded exams offer unparalleled early-years training, equipping your child with the skills to pursue music in higher education and beyond.

Tuition for Adults

As an adult learner, lessons are centred around your individual needs to help you achieve your own personal aspirations. Whether you want to improvise with jazz chords, play songs by your favourite bands or explore classical music by the great composers, your experience – strengthened by your own proactive nature – will be fulfilling, progressive and authentic.

About Me

I am passionate about delivering music across boundaries and cultures and the special role it plays in the lives of all people. Within the international community, I have worked as a professional pianist and accompanist, piano and composition teacher, music teacher, ensemble coach and pianist in residence in a variety of educational settings, from world-class international and private schools to music institutions and studios. I’ve lived and worked in the UK, Sweden, New Zealand, Malaysia and Bahrain. My experiences as a music educator have lead to a global perspective of how music unites people, having a huge impact on my work as a composer and pianist.

Testimonials

“Guy brought energy, passion and, of course, bags of expertise to age and talent level appropriate home lessons. He sparked interest and helped my daughter progress quickly in her discovery of the piano, with the right balance of professionalism and friendship needed for a twelve year old. Truly highly recommended.”

Paul Bland, Parent

“Lessons with Guy were great fun. He would always find new musical materials and resources to get me thinking outside the box, keeping me inspired and engaged. Guy is an incredibly patient teacher with an encouraging sense of humour, especially during rehearsal sessions. His endless musical innovation constantly generates improvement, and, as a result, I am a better musician having studied with Guy.” 

YongHang Ong,
French Horn Student

“Guy is a brilliant musician with an extraordinary gift for music. He can capture a student’s imagination whilst teaching new and complex ideas, and build strong rapport with students, parents and colleagues alike. In my fifteen years of teaching, Guy ranks highly as a phenomenal asset to education. He is gifted, creative and has the rapport with students of all abilities to motivate, enthuse and educate.”
