Superb grand piano in a dedicated studio 

Providing tuition on a quality German grand piano is just one aspect that distinguishes lessons here. With its rich and distinct sound, you will soon appreciate the fine materials and German craftsmanship that makes this 6.6ft Steinberg so good to play, inspiring students of every level to play to their very best.  

With its contemporary design, this 22ft piano studio provides an inviting place to perform, offering great acoustics, and crisp-white LED lighting throughout. Two large Velux windows channel natural light into the room making for a pleasant environment to learn and play.

Effective teaching set-up

In addition to the Steinberg grand piano, the Yamaha N1 Hybrid, with its grand piano action, is perfect for demonstration and supporting students as they play. As well as helping to maintain continuity in lessons, having two grand pianos significantly improves the efficiency, effectiveness, and enjoyment of every lesson.

To further connect the learning process, a live video link is available which allows the student and teacher to see each other's piano keys on a separate monitor positioned right next to them. This facility has helped improve teaching and allows the student to really appreciate how a different approach might transform their playing.  

Experienced and supportive 

With over twenty years as a professional teacher, and qualifications in performance, music theory, and piano accompaniment, students can follow their musical aspirations with confidence, knowing that they are being guided by an experienced, friendly, and supportive tutor.

From novice players to those working towards professional diplomas in performance and teaching, IMJMusic prides itself on offering tuition to a wide range of students. Some ex-students have read music at university and some are now practising teachers across the town and beyond.

Develop your playing at student workshops

Learning the piano can be quite a solitary activity, so finding opportunities to bring adult students together to meet and hear each other can prove particularly rewarding for pupil and teacher alike

Throughout the year, a series of informal workshops is arranged  in the IMJMusic studio to help adults develop musicality and confidence in performance. Open to all, this provides a much-valued insight into piano playing and the wider repertoire. Many adults find this brings a new dimension to their learning. 

Piano workshops and music exams 

Piano workshops are arranged throughout the year to provide opportunities for adult students of every ability to meet and play to each other. Many pupils find these performance occasions invaluable, helping to develop not only their musicality and confidence but also a much-valued social dimension to learning a musical instrument.

Take your exams here in the studio

Knowing how an instrument will sound and perform really does make all the difference when it comes to exams. And with many students here at IMJMusic, regulated and accredited qualifications with London College of Music can be taken here in the studio and assessed by a visiting examiner.

From first grade to an entry-level diploma, students can sit recognised exams in the comfort and familiar environment of the studio using the same grand piano they receive their weekly lesson. This helps contribute significantly to each student's success when exams are on the horizon.
