Welcome to Piano Maestros

We are a team of dedicated piano teachers, aspiring to nurture, inspire and educate new talent. We teach one-to-one piano lessons to students from the age of four to adults, and we welcome players of all abilities and aspirations.

Piano playing always brings people together, and we are committed to keeping this tradition alive. We want to pass the artistry and joy of playing the piano on to a new generation and share it with our community.

COVID-19 UPDATE

We are currently teaching all our lessons in person, unless you wish to continue online, or need to self-isolate. In line with the Government’s guidance on managing the risk of COVID-19, every student’s face-to-face lesson is subject to an individual risk assessment. Please see our Covid-19 Guidelines for Piano Lessons.

As advice on working safely during current coronavirus continues to be updated, we will remain vigilant and communicate any necessary updates as these come through. If you have any questions or require further clarification, feel free to give us a direct call on 07999 231493.

We are committed to continuing on our mission to motivate and support our pupils. Now more than ever, we must keep aspiring to be Piano Maestros, as engaging in a creative activity is essential to our wellbeing and in fact, therapeutic.

Dine & Play at the Clarendon Hotel Blackheath

We launched our family concert series TEA & TUNES at the Clarendon Hotel Blackheath in November 2019 with great success. Sadly, due to coronavirus we can’t organise these concerts at the moment. However, we would like to offer all our students an informal performing opportunity in front of your family or friends. All you need to do is to dine at the hotel on a Sunday afternoon. Get in touch for more information.

What our students say

“I highly recommend online piano lessons with Piano Maestros. As a parent, I think it’s important that my son keeps motivated and engaged in playing. We are using WhatsApp video call and it works great.

It’s wonderful that students can continue with their lessons while self-isolating. No swimming, no playing at the playground etc.. oh dear! At least, piano lessons still go on. Fabulous. We have a great tutor too.”

Sandrine Mcmorris, parent

“I am an adult learner, who started to learn piano in my late 50s. Being older seems to mean that I am both, slower to learn…. and faster to forget. I need my regular lessons and practice.

These lessons are keeping me on track and make me prepare and work on pieces the same as I did for in-person lessons. My online lessons are, and will continue to be, a highlight of my week.”

Maria, student

“In many ways, online teaching is more efficient than the traditional way. It has improved Dylan’s knowledge of music theory and score reading. Participating in a lesson from home on his own piano, he also feels more relaxed and confident during the lesson.”

Queena Liu, parent

“I was quite apprehensive about lessons going on-line as I don’t generally use this technology. However, although a bit strange at first I was surprised at how well it can work and the lesson was followed up with clear notes from the teacher.  We are keeping our own notes of progress ready for our next lesson and will try to use the biggest screen we have this time.”
