Information about Jacob
I am a young professional pianist beginning a Junior Fellowship at the Royal Northern College of Music in September.
Availability: Daytime, evenings and weekends.
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: I have 12 years experience as a private piano tutor and have also been employed by schools in South London for the past 18 months. I enjoy teaching students of all ages and abilities and have much experience helping beginners get started.
The motto for my lessons is "how can I help?" I want to find out my student`s musical tastes, aspirations and goals and give them the tools to realise them. That may mean taking exams and qualifications, or simply playing for pleasure.
The way I play is based on the Russian tradition of piano technique, emphasising relaxation and the use of the whole body to find a style that is strong, flexible and co-ordianted.
Due to the impact of Covid-19 I am currently teaching all lessons online. I have found that online lessons are not only convenient but also just as effective as in-person lessons,. In fact, I have been studying with a new teacher online and have made progress than ever!
