Swindon Piano Lessons

I am a classically-trained, professional pianist and teacher providing one-to-one piano tuition for adults and children in Swindon, Wiltshire.

Over my 10 years as a piano teacher, I have coached students of all ages and abilities, from complete beginners with no experience, to those already studying the piano who are seeking to build their skills and experience. For more advanced students I teach post grade 8 qualifications as well as jazz piano as an alternative route of progression. I also offer tuition in composition for those studying GCSE and A Level music.

I take each student at their own pace through the ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) graded exams in classical piano and/or jazz piano and music theory, including sight-reading. Nearly all my students pass their grades firsts time. However, entering exams is purely optional and I am happy to teach adults and children learning just for fun, and to help those more interested in public performance opportunities such as entering the Swindon Music Festival.

The piano is the “King of Instruments” – favoured by many great composers – and brings a range of wider benefits for players, including improved confidence, memory and spatial awareness.

My lessons are relaxed, engaging, reasonably-priced and can be booked to suit both parents and adult learners. I am fully CRB/DBS checked and am also a member of The Musicians’ Union (The MU).

“After several years of working on my own I signed up with John about 12 months ago. The online lessons work really well and I have made huge progress. John is quietly encouraging and I am now tackling pieces that I never thought I could. I look forward to our weekly lessons and I am really, really, excited about the pieces we are looking at this year. Thank you John!”


Beginners lessons for adults and children

Regardless of your age, learning to play the piano can seem quite daunting at the start, so as a teacher I make every effort to ensure that lessons are as fun and relaxed as possible. My beginners lessons provide you with a thorough introduction to the piano to gain the skills and confidence needed to progress onto more advanced music.

Classical piano

Do you have a favourite piece of music that you’ve always wanted to play? I can offer lessons in classical piano (including grades) to give you all the skills required to play any piece you desire. These lessons are focused on building your technique and experience to help gain the level of ability needed to tackle pieces by the great classical pianist composers.

Jazz piano

If you are already an experienced pianist you might fancy trying your hands at jazz! I can offer tuition in jazz piano to teach you all the skills required to become a jazz performer including improvisation, scale usage and harmony. These lessons are designed for anyone who has a flare for musically creativity and wants to pursue a new challenge.

Music theory

Music theory is covered to some degree in all practical lessons. However I can also offer dedicated lessons in music theory to help prepare students taking music theory exams.


For those wanting to approach music more creatively or are struggling with their GCSE or A level composition assignment I can assist with the process of writing music for the piano or any other instrumental ensemble.
