About Piano Lessons York

About Piano Lessons York

Welcome to Piano Lessons York! My name is Simon and I live in York with my wife and two kids. My job is helping students of all ages to learn to play the piano (amongst other musical things)! I have been teaching here for 4 years now, having previously studied music at the University of York.

I have a background in classical, pop and jazz music, so I can teach any of these genres, focussing on written music or improvisation. I have experience teaching both adults and children, complete beginners and more advanced players.

When it comes to lessons, I try to make these as accessible as possible, tailored for each pupil's needs and preferences. I am happy to teach through grades or to work towards "homemade targets". At the end of the day, my main aim is to help people flourish in their music. Putting in the work and time to figure out what is best for each pupil is definitely worth the reward! On top of the piano, I also teach the trumpet up to grade 8 standard in all styles - you can read more about my trumpet tuition on my Music Teacher profile.

As well as my tuition, I gig regularly with a jazz trio and occasionally as part of a larger function band. I am also director of music at St. Thomas' church, York, which includes running and conducting the St. Thomas' gospel choir.

Classical & Contemporary

I am an experienced teacher, covering a variety of styles including classical, jazz and popular. Lessons are tailored to suit the pupil's aims, whether it's to progress through grades or simply learn for fun. So whether you want to play like Chopin, Einaudi, Jamie Cullum or Elton John, I will make sure that I shape our lessons around your taste in music, to encourage you along your musical path.
