Music for enjoyment.

Lessons are fun, relaxed and progressive; and take place in a stress-free environment. Instead of placing emphasis on exams or pieces/styles students don't enjoy, Matt instead puts the focus on what each student wants to achieve using the wide musical repertoire available.
Tuition is invaluable at the start of your musical journey. Just Piano Lessons offers in depth tuition in developing theoretical and practical knowledge, not to mention your own musicality. As a musician you will continue to be a student of music for the rest of your life.
We cater for pianists returning to lessons who are looking to either sharpen their skills or get a new perspective on piano and music in general eg: Jazz, Blues, Classical, Composition, Harmony, Chords, Scales and Patterns.
Music is the universal language that needs no words. It can carry you through the happiest and saddest moments of your life and is the skill that keeps on giving. You will constantly meet new and interesting people through a shared love of music.
