Welcome to Richmond Piano School
We offer private piano lessons of the highest quality to students of all ages and abilities, from beginners to advanced players. Our method of teaching is inspired by the legendary Russian System whereby a student focuses on creating the perfect piano technique and a colourful tone. However, we also follow different modern teaching approaches which are based on developing a program for each student’s individual needs. Our methodology is very successful in preparing both children and adults for ABRSM accredited exams and we also like to encourage everyone to perform and show their achievements at various concerts and festivals. Our students have won prizes and awards, many of which were gold medals and 1 st place trophies. Our school can offer a path to a professional piano playing career but we also like to motivate students to play for their own enjoyment. Although classical music is the most popular genre at our school, we also teach pop and jazz music together with music theory and history. We focus on our lessons being fun, friendly and interesting, as well as motivating and progressive, so that every student benefits from their lessons and enjoys playing the style of music that they like.
What other reasons can you have for learning to play the piano?
Many studies have shown that music can help with language skills, develop and maintain fine motor skills, boost memory and even improve overall IQ. Music also helps with confidence and concentration, especially when performing in front of others. Our methodology is based on those facts, as we try to encourage the body and mind to work together in order to achieve the great feeling of musical fulfilment. And, we believe that everybody is capable of achieving this goal!
