Playing a musical instrument is incredibly rewarding and will provide many hours of enjoyment for the rest of your life. In addition, studies have shown that children who learn piano often exhibit more self-discipline and concentration, thus achieving higher results in school. Similarly researchers have measured strong changes in the brains of those who begin taking piano lessons, even after the age of 65.
Concert pianist Jonathan Delbridge has 20 years' experience teaching pupils of all ages and abilities and also performs regularly in large and small venues throughout the UK from the Royal Albert Hall and York Minster to All Saints Church in his own village of Lopen, Somerset. He has an FRSM diploma in piano which is the highest diploma awarded by the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music. In addition he holds an ALCM diploma in jazz piano, which he passed with distinction, and a DipMusTh(ICMA) in music theory. Whilst pupils consistently gain excellent results in exams and many go on to pursue their own musical careers, Jonathan is equally happy teaching those who simply want to learn for their own personal enjoyment.
Jonathan is happy to offer an initial, no-obligation trial lesson where you can meet up and discuss requirements further. Lessons are invoiced half termly but extra tuition can be arranged for school holidays. More advanced pupils can book one-off consultation lessons.
