“In Andrew, we have a teacher who always gives our daughter Julia challenges, offers honest feedback, instills confidence and has patience in ensuring her development in piano.” Erik Kwan (parent)
“Andrew has taught my 11 year old son for the past two years. I cannot recommend him highly enough. If he can find a space in his busy schedule to give lessons for anyone you know, they will be very fortunate in securing the services of an outstanding teacher.
Andrew is expert in many areas of music and he has an impressive CV that underpins his pursuit of excellence. Look no further if piano or keyboard is your thing and you wish to take lessons with one of the very best teachers available.” Jeff Cable (parent)
“My daughter has made excellent progress, thoroughly enjoying her lessons. In addition, Andrew has broadened her appreciation of music by introducing her to a wide range of composers and styles.” Viv Hollis (parent)
“I was very happy to find Andrew as a piano teacher for my two sons. He works hard to engage them in the subject and tailors the lessons to their individual needs, making sure they make progress whilst still enjoying playing music.” Geoff Waggott (parent)
Teenagers and Former Students
“Andrew gives my son sensitive guidance on the piano that is centred on the music he chooses and is individually tailored to him. The lesson is rounded with knowledge and understanding of the the music that helps my son to understand the context of the piece and develop his own thoughts on the interpretation.” Bev Field (parent)
“Andrew has been an excellent keyboard and now piano teacher for our 14 year old daughter Anna. She had begun to lose interest and had been put off by previous teachers. However after persuading her to give Andrew a go, it proved to be just the right thing. Andrew has the perfect balance of being gently encouraging and calm and not too nagging and has got Anna back on track. We can highly recommend him.” Ruth Irwin (parent)
“Track record is a bit of a clumsy statement in music teaching, but Andrew’s consistently high results speak volumes for the quality of training. The step change in my daughters piano playing was a direct result of Andrew’s inspirational teaching and huge experience. We feel very fortunate to have Andrew as our children’s music teacher. I would highly recommend Andrew.” Chris Grao (parent)
“Andrew has taught both my children piano/keyboard for more than 5 years with outstanding results. He inspires a passion and motivation along with a strong sense of discipline. As a family we find Andrew friendly and engaging and more importantly sparks an imagination with the kids looking for new material to play…Classical to Adele! With Andrew there isn’t a written rule. He will always do the best for your child.” Alexia Welham (parent)
“Andrew is a gifted musician and an excellent teacher. Both my sons learnt to play the piano under his guidance and have continued to play for pleasure now they are young men. Andrew’s passion for music is infectious. I would thoroughly recommend him as a teacher to both young and old.” Sharon Clark (parent of former students)
