PIANO LESSONS AT HAMPSTEAD PIANO ACADEMY

Hampstead Piano Academy is a private music school that provides one to one piano tuition at all levels and ages, from young beginners to motivated adults.

Piano lessons in Hampstead take place at our studio, based in a quiet street within walking distance to public transport and nearby parking. In addition, there is also a service for home visits in the surrounding areas such as St. John’s Wood and the London borough of Camden: Hampstead Town, West Hampstead, Swiss Cottage or Belsize Park.

Our services include individual piano lessons in classical, jazz and improvisation, as well as tutorials to prepare ABRSM, Trinity College and LCM exams at all levels.

Being a soloist can often be a lonely pursuit so we also offer piano duet lessons (ideal for siblings, couples, friends and neighbours) and music playgroup sessions for the little ones. Each lesson is carefully planned and our pupils get the teacher’s undivided attention. The learning process is tracked and the students are provided with a monthly report: a personalized guidance to know what to practice and how to do it.

Likewise, Hampstead Piano Academy organises public concerts where pupils can showcase what they have achieved through hard work, dedication and fun.

Prizewinners of international competitions, our qualified piano teachers hold Master’s Degrees from London’s most prestigious colleges and conservatoires such as the Royal College of Music and Trinity Laban Conservatoire. Their performance experience, not only as soloists but also as a four hands piano duet, provides the students with a broader understanding of music.

Hampstead Piano Academy is open Monday to Sunday, 9 am to 9 pm.

LESSONS AND FEES

CLASSICAL PIANO

Classical piano is a combination of discipline, patience, technique and musicality that allows you to communicate and share your feelings without words.

JAZZ AND IMPROVISATION

Jazz and improvisation are an enjoyable training to become a well-rounded musician, play spontaneously with anybody or create your own pieces.

ABRSM AND TRINITY COLLEGE EXAMS

ABRSM and Trinity College exams are a reliable measure of ability for music students. They test skills that are often neglected such as sight reading and listening.

PIANO DUET

Piano Duet students will learn to socialize and play together by sharing the same instrument and having each other’s support, which can build confidence on stage.

MUSIC PLAYGROUP

Music Playgroup is an opportunity for younger children to play together. Different games and the Játékok method will be used to encourage the student not to be afraid of mistakes and to love music. Groups will have a maximum of 4 people.

THEORY

Theory and musical language is as important as playing an instrument. The knowledge of the basis of music such as harmony or rhythm will improve the student’s performance skills.

MONTHLY REPORT

After each month, we provide a summary of what we’ve covered and a report to help the student to practice and the parents to keep a track on their learning process.

PERFORMANCE

Students will have a concert in the spring to showcase what they have achieved through hard work, dedication, and fun!

Lessons last 30, 45 or 60 minutes depending on the age of the student, and are booked and paid monthly in advance. Travel fees may apply for lessons at the student's home.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Learning the piano is a process where to teach the ingredients of music to the degree that the pupils have really internalised them, and can then apply what they’ve learned in all contexts. We aim to adapt our teaching to every single student depending on their abilities, whatever their pace is and however they work. We are continually inspiring our pupils to develop their imagination, creativity and self-esteem.

Hampstead Piano Academy believes that this process is more important than the outcome. When playing piano is enriching, exciting, absorbing and engaging, the journey becomes just as important as getting results.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

When could my child begin?

We recommend the beginning of lessons when a child is able to count up to 10 and recognize letters up to G. However, the best way to know is trying a complimentary consultation lesson.

Do you teach adults?

Where do you teach?

Hampstead Piano Academy is based in a quiet street in Hampstead within walking distance to public transport and nearby parking. In addition, there is also a service for home visits in the surrounding area.
