Experienced and Qualified UK Online Piano Teacher

online UK piano teacher

I am a passionate, experienced, friendly face-to-face and online piano teacher from the UK.

Specialising in teaching children and adults, I believe it’s never too late to learn. Although many of my students start as beginners, I also teach experienced and more advanced pianists. 

Many students play only for pleasure, but most take ABRSM piano exams, starting as beginners and progressing to grade 8 and beyond. 

I am proud to provide piano lessons in a pleasant environment using a well-rounded and complete teaching method. My face-to-face and online piano lessons are given on a Yamaha grand piano in a purpose-built piano studio.

Professional Online Piano Lessons for Adults and Children

As an experienced online piano teacher, I strive to give the best online piano lessons possible. Using three top-of-the-range cameras, a professional microphone and screen-sharing technology, I provide clear, concise instructions and make communication as clear as possible.

Learning piano online is an excellent alternative for many people, especially if they find it difficult to travel. Moreover, there are many benefits to online piano lessons, such as being able to record classes, demonstrate easily, and play in the comfort of your own home.

Personalised, Pre-Recorded Piano Lesson Videos


As an online piano teacher, I also offer tailored-made, pre-recorded piano lessons via video exchange (asynchronous piano lessons).

These are especially useful for students who can’t commit to a fixed weekly schedule. Asynchronous piano lessons are a highly effective and focused method of learning, increasing in popularity.

You can watch this tailored piano lesson video several times over the week and complete the tasks at a time that suits you.

I can give face-to-face, online and asynchronous piano lessons in either English or Spanish.  

About Me

Originally from North Yorkshire in the UK, I taught myself to play the piano when I was 7 and had my first piano lesson at the age of 14.

When I was 17, I moved to Leeds to study at Leeds Conservatoire of Music, obtaining a Bachelor’s degree in Music (B.A. Hons). During this time, I received several awards in piano performance and gave many recitals as a professional pianist. Subsequently, I studied at the University of Leeds, where I completed a Master’s in Music Performance (M.Mus).
