Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you teach beginners?

Absolutely, most of my students have never played the piano before their first lesson! We will have you playing in no time, don't worry!

Where are you located?

I teach the majority of my piano lessons in Glasgow from my home studio, located on Duke Wynd, G4 0WX, Glasgow. Click on the map below to find my location on Google maps! The studio is the perfect place to learn to play the piano, with a calm, relaxed atmosphere and great piano as well.

I can also teach piano at your house providing that you have the equipment and live within Glasgow's city boundaries. For more information simply get in touch.

Do you teach children?

Yes! I have taught many children to learn to play the piano. It is great for developing young peoples musicality and getting them excited by music.

I tutor children from the age of 6 upwards, with lessons for young people working best as half-hour lessons each week. You are more than welcome to join us for the piano lesson if you wish to sit in.

Is it still fine if I do not want to take exams?

Absolutely! Music is for everyone to enjoy, you certainly don't have to take exams if you don't want to. For students who are interested in taking graded exams, I offer exams using the Rockschool and ABRSM syllabi. For more information about piano grades in Glasgow simply get in touch.

What songs will we learn?

It is completely up to you! Whatever style of piano music you like, classical, modern or jazz, as well as anything in between, we will cover it! My piano lessons are all about empowering my students to play the music they love, whether that is Coldplay or Chopin. 

Do I need anything before I start my first lesson?

Not at all, I have all the equipment here that you are more than welcome to use!

Do we need a piano to learn?

If you are a beginner you can start with a keyboard. However, if you are at Grade 1 or above it's better to play on a piano to create your correct posture and technique. There are a lot of places in Glasgow that you can approach to see if they would allow you to practice there. For example, music studios, local churches, music shops, the University of Glasgow and other educational institutions for current students. You will be surprised where you can find a piano to practice on if you wanted to!

Can we arrange group lessons?

Yes, I would be happy to teach pairs of students if you are interested. More than two students within one lesson is often a challenge, individual lessons work best.

Do you give daytime lessons?

Yes, I do - we'll make sure to find the most suitable slot for your lesson.

What happens if I book a lesson but cannot attend?

Please, give me at least 24 hours notice and we can reschedule your lesson. Lessons cancelled within 24 hours of the arranged time will be charged for.

Do you offer gift vouchers? 

Yes, call me for more information!



Classical & Contemporary

I offer piano lessons for students learning classical or contemporary piano styles. I work hard to incorporate the composers and music preferences of my students into our lesson content. So whether it is Coldplay or Chopin I have the piano lessons for you!

I welcome beginners, intermediate and more advanced students to attend lessons with me. I have helped many beginners over the years, with young learners and adults rapidly progressing on the piano. Intermediate and advanced students can prepare for graded exams or continue to progress their playing for fun. 

I would be delighted to help you or your children learn to play the piano. For more information please don't hesitate to get in touch by contacting me on 03458 693391, or emailing via the contact page.
