Terry Holman (Music Producer, former student)
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 (Media Composer, former student)
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.
Andrew also teaches the importance of broader musical knowledge and understanding, not just purely focusing on grades as some parents tend to do.
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 an engaging piano teacher who is both passionate and knowledgeable.
Simon March (parent)
Andrew has been teaching my daughter to play the piano for several years. He is very patient and understanding, particularly when practice has not been as diligent as he might like, and his exam results are consistently very good. I would recommend Andrew to anyone seeking lessons for themselves or their children.
Stephen Montague (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.
