Piano teacher Milton Keynes

Young Pianodao Scheme

Young people aged 7-19 can receive expert tuition in Milton Keynes from leading piano educator ANDREW EALES.

The Young Pianodao Scheme is designed to support committed younger players, offering them a discounted rate and enabling more students to benefit from Andrew’s professional experience and expertise throughout their school years.

The scheme delivers:

36 lessons a year, usually three a month.
• Lessons last 45 minutes.
• Discounts on sheet music purchases.

This scheme is ideal for young people who commit to:

• listening to good music regularly
• daily practice (30 minutes, aiming for 60 minutes)
• an enthusiasm for performing and sharing music
• consistent lesson attendance

Discount Subscription: £90.00 per month (value £108.00)


Students enrolled in the scheme enjoy a musically rich, fast-track approach, following a comprehensive programme of study which largely bypasses grade exams. They are however advised to take a Grade 8 exam when ready, and earlier grades may be recommended at the teacher’s discretion and where mutually agreed.

The Young Pianodao Scheme is also suitable for students preparing for auditions, music college or specialist school entry, or diploma exams.

Andrew focuses on the positive development of each individual student at her or his own pace, enabling all to become confident independent learners, whatever their particular musical interests.

Although trained as a classical musician, Andrew also embraces jazz and contemporary piano styles, as well as composing and improvisation.

“It’s hard to express in words just how grateful I am to Andrew for all the lessons and all the guidance. I wouldn’t be where I am today were it not for Andrew never giving up on me, and pushing to get the very best out of me. I couldn’t have hoped for a better teacher, or a better friend … Andrew Rocks!”

Bradley Jordan (professional media composer)

“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. He teaches the importance of broader musical knowledge and understanding, not just purely focusing on grades. We feel very fortunate to have Andrew as our children’s music teacher.”

Chris Grao (parent)
