PIANO, CELLO AND THEORY LESSONS
Either online or in Ashbourne, Derbyshire
I hope I can help you progress with your musical journey, wherever you are at the moment.
I am a fully qualified music teacher with over twenty years' experience. I can offer expert tuition for all ages and abilities on piano, cello and musical theory, as well as extra support with GCSE Music. I hold an Enhanced DBS Certificate.
I am now able to teach people face-to-face from my home in Ashbourne, Derbyshire, where I have put in place safety measures to help protect everyone. However, I also offer remote lessons if that's what you would prefer.
Please contact me for a discussion and a free consultation.
"Ed is an extremely proficient and talented musician and his passion for music and performance is infectious. He can adapt to bring out the best in musicians of all ages in a supportive and sensitive way."
WHAT I OFFER
Whatever your age and whatever level you are at, I would like to help. You might be a parent looking for lessons for your child, an adult who's always wanted to learn an instrument but never quite got around to it, or perhaps you are returning to playing music after a break.
I can help you work towards graded exams — covering both the practical and the theory — or teach you purely for your own enjoyment. To find out more information about what I can offer and my prices, please get in touch.

"Ed is a fabulous musician, very patient and professional. A great teacher. I have no hesitation in recommending him."
Safety measures — COVID-19
I am now able to teach students face-to-face within my home but will be putting in place the following precautions to keep everyone safe:
Only one student (with one accompanying parent if relevant) is allowed on my premises at a time.
All visitors will be asked to use hand sanitiser before they enter my house (provided by me) and when leaving.
I will sanitise my hands before each student enters.
I will aim to keep a safe distance from each student, teach from the side, and wear a face covering.
When I need to demonstrate something on the piano, I will use a different area of the keyboard from the student.
I will wipe the piano keyboard with antibacterial cleanser before each student starts their lesson.
During the lesson, I will open a window in the room to provide ventilation.
Students must bring their own music to the lesson; I will not be able to lend them my copies.
I do not recommend any students or parents from vulnerable groups come to my house for lessons — please consider booking remote lessons instead.
If a student needs to use the toilet while on my premises, I will ensure it is cleaned straight after the lesson.
"A committed, caring professional who brings music alive for all his students. Creates a love of music and helps young people achieve to the best of their abilities. Highly recommended."
