About Andrew W.

Andrew is a highly experienced educator with over 10 years’ experience teaching one-to-one lessons, workshops and masterclasses to a wide range of ages and abilities. Since graduating from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire he has been making a name for himself on the creative music scene with accolades and awards including the Dankworth Prize for Jazz Composition, HMUK’s Do It Differently Award and being named ‘One To Watch’ in Jazzwise Magazine.
Andrew’s easy-going personality combined with his passion and knowledge of a wide range of musical styles make him a great teacher, whether you’re looking to brush up on your skills or making your first steps into learning an instrument.

Teaching in Piano
Andrew teaches piano to all ages of pupils, from beginners through to advanced students. For those looking to progress through exams, he offers tuition in ABRSM, Trinity and Rockschool syllabuses and has a 100% success rate with students taking these exams. He also has plenty of students who are learning just for fun, and there is no pressure to go down the exams route if you feel that’s not for you; Andrew can offer a structured learning process for whatever kind of music you’d like to play.

Lessons typically cover the fundamentals of technique and finger/hand positioning, scales and arpeggios and reading notated music, as well as more advanced areas of ear training, harmony and improvisation, all of which feed into a holistic understanding of the instrument and allow you to express yourself through music.
Andrew also offers lessons in Music Theory and Composition.

Genre
Andrew has a wide range of experience across all genres including Classical/Rock/Pop/Soul/Ska/Funk, and his main specialism is teaching Jazz and Improvisation.

First lesson
Your first lesson will start with a chat to get to know a bit about you, including where you’re up to musically, what kind of music you’re interested in and what you’re looking to get out of the lessons. After that, you’ll move over to work on the instrument, maybe playing a piece if you have something you’ve been working on or using some exercises and demonstrations to get you up and running if this is your first time.

Beginners
Ideally beginners will have their own instrument at home to be practicing on between lessons but this isn’t a requirement for the very first lesson; Andrew can provide advice on choosing a suitable Keyboard or Piano to get started on if this is something you’re unsure on. Andrew will also be able to advise on books and learning resources at this time, so no additional material is required for the first lesson. If you have a book already and want to work with that, that’s great! Absolutely no prior experience or musical knowledge is needed to get started, and Andrew will do his absolute best to put you at ease as you take the first steps on your musical journey.
