piano

Piano Lesson Pedagogy

Rock Pop Piano Lessons, Classical Piano Lessons, Jazz Piano Lessons and piano improvisation lessons (from Renaissance, through classical partimenti, to rock-pop) bespoke to your learning style. These musical piano lessons fuse different skills with a “Sound to Symbol” methodology: First, learn to play (“doing”). Second, reveal the theory previously assimilated subconsciously (understanding). Develop a depth of musicianship not found in other teaching methodologies. Certification is available for courses.

SINGING

Singing Lessons & Vocal Coach

Bespoke singing lessons and vocal coach for Pop Vocalists, Classical Singers and Musical Theatre Singers. A down-to-earth approach, enabling you to master seemingly quite complex issues. Singing teaching technique rapidly leads to knowing ‘what it should feel like’ when you get it right. Vocal range or vocal tessitura, tone, ability and a more varied vocal colour expand rapidly. Three former singing pupils have released singles this year alone. Harmony, technique stylisation and improvisation are important in all styles of singing lessons.

Aural

Aural Lessons, Musicianship Lessons Solfege & Kodaly

Musicianship and aural teaching is Kodaly inspired. Solfege is used extensively via workshops for schools, diploma students, private pupils and the Royal College of Organists aural training. Advanced aural training lessons are effective through higher diploma levels. Kodaly derived methodology enhances the ‘inner ear’ and sight-singing. Robin has a chapter published in the Routledge Companion to Aural Skills Pedagogy: Before, In, and Beyond Higher Education. (Routledge, March 19, 2021).
