Student Testimonials

‘I started virtual piano lessons with Alec during lock-down last year after over a 10 year gap from playing the piano. Within a year I was back to playing at my previous level and continuing to progress all the time thanks to Alec’s guidance and help. I have loved getting back to the Piano after so many years, Thank you Alec!’

'Alec is not only an amazingly talented musician, he is also an absolutely superb teacher. He has taught me since I was a beginner and thanks to him my playing has progressed exponentially. He is a patient teacher, taking lessons at my pace. He finds pieces for me to learn which are within my capabilities but which also give me a challenge. I have learnt many new techniques and my skills are improving all of the time. I always look forward to my lessons and would wholeheartedly recommend him’.

‘About two years ago I started to learn to play the piano with Alec and I’m still thoroughly enjoying the online lessons that I currently have with him. Alec is very patient, always encouraging, and his lessons are engaging. Alec provides a clear explanation of music theory where necessary, and has some clever tricks for practising the more difficult and complicated pieces of music. Very inspiring! It is a great way to spend some of my retirement time. Whatever age, I would highly recommend Alec to anyone interested in learning to play the piano’.

‘I knew, as an older adult beginner, that the piano would not be easy for me but Alec has been incredibly patient and understanding and is always positive and constructively critical – vital for improvement. He sets achievable goals between lessons and if for some reason I do not achieve that goal we discuss why and he will devise ways to make the goal achievable for me. Alec is student focused and will respond to the needs of the individual. I have found the approach that Alec uses perfect and his style of teaching has led to improvement that I would not have thought possible when I began lessons with him in January. This improvement has led to increased motivation and, importantly, enjoyment of the piano’.
