5 Star Tuition!

My children have recently started piano lessons with Ross after tuition at school didn’t seem to be progressing them in skill or confidence. In a short time they have both improved and have a genuine pride in learning again. They come out of their lessons with big smiles. Ross is very approachable, friendly and it’s evident how talented he is and how hard he works in order for his students to excel.

Fun lessons with a talented and highly knowledgeable teacher

Ross is a friendly and encouraging teacher providing lessons I look forward to.

I have found Ross' lessons very effective, and am learning to play piano and read music much faster than I ever expected to and with correct technique.

Ross is a great teacher who has set up the perfect environment to learn piano in and I highly recommend choosing him to be your teacher too.

Ross has been teaching my 13 year old daughter for over a year. She has now passed her grade 1 and is currently working on grade 2. Ross is kind, patient and makes her lessons fun. I receive detailed lesson notes on what they have covered during the lesson and what needs to be worked on over the week from home so I can help and encourage too. I would highly recommend Ross!

My 13 year old son began his piano lessons with Ross just over a year ago. He has recently passed his grade 1 examination with distinction. What I have been most impressed with is how my sons confidence has grown over the past year. My son always looks forward to his lessons and comes out happy every time.
Ross keeps me regularly updated on my sons progress. Can not recommend him enough.

Excellent Qualified Piano Teacher

I began my first lessons with Ross Just over three months ago as a mature student.
Following retirement some years ago, I felt that I needed a new interest, and the need to follow a long time desire to learn Piano. I felt a little apprehensive and concerned at first that I may not be able learn to read music at my time of life, however I have found Ross to be an excellent teacher, he is patient, very reassuring and is very encouraging when I struggle with certain pieces.
Ross is highly qualified and I would recommend Ross to anyone wishing to start Piano, whether they are young or elderly (as myself).
I am very much enjoying my new interest and look forward to each lesson and although I have a long way to go, I hope that one day Ross will consider me to be another of his many successful students.

Thank you Ross.

If You're Looking To Learn The Piano? Ross is your man!

After many years of not touching the piano, i decided to re-start. Luckily I found Ross just around the corner from me. After my first lesson i found ross to be friendly and a great teacher. Within weeks of tuition, and encouragement from Ross, i found new confidence with my playing. Ross is very helpful and teaches in a way that i can easily understand. The tuition room is inviting and the grand piano is wonderful to play. Through Ross i have rekindled my love of piano playing and i am currently learning a piece of music i never thought i could do.
I really enjoy my lessons with Ross, he makes the lessons fun, especially when I occasionally go wrong!
Great teacher and highly recommended.
