A graduate of the Royal College of Music London and University of Birmingham, Andrew Eales has the professional training and experience needed to provide the best music education. He enjoys a growing international reputation and is well known for his compositions, educational writing and consultancy work for ABRSM and other leading music education organisations.

 

Andrew provides a flexible range of music learning opportunities for pianists of all ages and abilities – from young children to pensioners, and from beginners right through to professionals. To meet the wide range of student needs, tuition can be on a regular weekly or fortnightly basis, or more occasional consultation lessons.

 

Teaching Style and Content

 

Andrew focuses on the positive development of each individual student at his or her own pace, enabling all to become confident independent learners, whatever their particular musical interests. Although trained to the highest levels as a classical musician, Andrew also embraces jazz, popular and easy listening piano styles, as well as composing and improvisation.

 

Andrew’s students benefit from:

 

Andrew’s students learn:

  • How to play the piano musically and with a relaxed technique, avoiding injury and developing beautiful tone control and balance
  • How to practice effectively, making fast and secure progress
  • How to read music quickly, accurately and with musical independence and understanding (including Music Theory exam preparation)
  • How to play pieces and interpret music with authority in a wide range of styles
  • How to develop their listening ability and musical / aural response
  • How to improvise and compose their own piano music
  • How to play with and to others with confidence and enjoyment

 

And unlike many private music teachers Andrew is fully CRB checked, has comprehensive public indemnity insurance, and is a member of the Incorporated Society of Musicians.

Payment Plan:

24 lessons per year (average, 2 per month), £54.00 fixed monthly payment

 

Students who sign up for fortnightly lessons are allocated a semi-regular timetable slot (alternating with another student). Preferred weeks cannot be guaranteed, and flexibility is essential.

  • Students who value regular input, but not every week
  • Students who are highly motivated and have an effective practice routine
  • Students who are learning purely for pleasure
  • Adult students juggling a busy lifestyle

 

Consultation Lessons

The occasional consultation lesson can provide a high impact boost when required, and are suitable for:

  • Highly motivated students who value professional advice on an ad-hoc basis
  • Semi-professionals seeking occasional input and advice
  • Teachers looking for advice and mentorship
  • Musicians working for a specific goal who need particular guidance

 

Skype Lessons

Andrew also offers lessons via Skype as a substitute for students who are unable to come for lessons at his studio. Skype lessons are suitable when:

  • Students are unable to attend their regular lesson
  • Students are unwell, but able to learn from home
  • Students have transport difficulties, e.g. during adverse weather

 

Lessons via skype are not as high impact as personal tuition provided at the studio, but in some cases they provide the best alternative.
