Information about Jacob

I trained and Oxford and Yale Universities and the Royal Northern College of Music. I am currently a Young Artist at the National Opera Studio in London, specialising in piano accompaniment. I have studied with Norma Fisher, Graham Fitch and Anthony Purkiss.

Solo performances include recitals at Chapel Royal and St Luke`s Brighton, St Michael All Angels Brighton and Merton College Oxford. As an accompanist I have performed widely including at London`s Wigmore Hall and Bridgewater Hall Manchester. I have won prizes for my playing including the Springboard Festival Christine Pembridge Cup and The Worthing Festival pianist of the year. I have performed as an ensemble member with the orchestra of the Welsh National Opera and Royal Northern College of Music. In addition I have accompanied operatic rehearsals with leading conductors such as Peter Whelan and David Parry. I have also accompanied masterclasses with leading artists such as Renee Flemming and Katarina Karneus. As choral accompanist I have worked with Bob Chillcott and the Congleton Choral Society and Sussex Voiceworks among others.

My approach to teaching is "how can I help?" My extensive experience has given my a box of tools that I can show you to overcome common piano playing issues and progress to play the music you love. In a typical lesson we will cover physical technique, reading/analysing music and finding expression so that you can become a confident, fulfilled pianist.

Availability: My availability is flexible and changes weekly. Guaranteed slots are mornings before 10am, Tuesday/Wednesday evenings and weekends.

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: I have taught privately in 2009 and my students have obtained merit and distinction awards in ABRSM. I was also a regular keyboards coach on Music Makers residential courses in Hampshire.

In addition I have taught at Babington House School and Sutton Music Service, as well as working as a singing tutor with West Sussex Music.

I am an experienced tutor of both children and adults and am happy to work with any age and ability.

Jacob is great. Very methodical developing a solid technical base on which to improve my playing. Has been flexible to fit around work and I’m really enjoying learning with him. Highly recommended.
