..."I started with Jules as a total beginner and he's helped me to learn enough music theory and technique to be able to play pretty much any pop song, which was one of my goals when we started. We're now working on some jazz and I love the lessons, really look forward to them each week. Every time I get stuck, Jules always finds a way to help me out of it. I can't recommend him highly enough."...

..."After years of wanting to go back to learning the piano, I finally took the plunge and haven't looked back. Jules is a phenomenal teacher, breaking down barriers with thought, kindness and a seemingly endless array of ideas to conquer areas of difficulty, which playing the piano raises. I can't recommend his teaching enough, I now play with a level of confidence I didn't think I could achieve and most importantly, I enjoy every minute!"...

..."As a working keys player, Jules helped me improve my skills and become a much better all round player and he's helped me get to grips with styles that I always felt were a bit out of reach. Our conversations on career development have been incredibly useful and the contacts he's given me have opened up many new avenues and paid work for which I'm really grateful. I can't rate him highly enough, he's totally fabulous! If you're looking for a new teacher then don't look any further!

..."Jules taught our daughter until the time pressure of school work meant that she had to stop, which was after Grade 6. Jules is hugely talented and a very versatile tutor. He helped her maintain an interest music and developing her skills despite her tendancies to get distracted. Between them they made great progress, passing all her exams with excellent results. As a parent Jules was brilliant to deal with and recommend him with flying colours!"...

..."Jules taught me piano from Grade 2 through to Grade 6 and also coached me through my Grade 5 theory. I passed all with merit or distinction. Jules is a brilliant pianist and teacher, really patient and very creative, making our lessons fun and interesting. He always put a lot of work into our sessions and I found that practicing was always fun and rewarding"...

..."I’ve known Jules for over ten years, his patience and encouragement go without saying. To have the house filled with wonderful piano music (his!!) is a real treat. I’m a difficult pupil, Jules has tried persistently to move me along with extraordinarily personalised instruction. I’m loving it!”...

..."Jules is a fantastic, patient, and compassionate teacher, who taught me for several years from Grade 4 to 7. He was a great help for my ABRSM exams, but also for the love of piano beyond assessments, and I feel his teaching was a driving force in my passion for playing and listening to piano and classical music well into my adult years. As I progressed through the grades I have been amazed at his skill and breadth of knowledge, which made me feel comfortable and confident in my own playing. I truly cannot recommend him enough!"...

..."Like any great teacher, Jules takes each lesson beyond the immediate task at hand into psychology. He supports you through the journey of learning how to learn, tailoring each lesson to your needs, goals and passions, whether that be technical improvement, getting exposure to new music or simply enjoying playing the piano. Most importantly, Jules gets to know each of his students deeply to embed a passion for piano: several years after my last lesson, I have bought a digital keyboard and continue to use his tips to this day. Thanks Jules!"...

..."Hello fellow pianists, I am John Dunn, had the pleasure these past 6 years of receiving piano lessons from Jules. I found his teaching to be quite remarkable, every question from any angle however abstract, would be met with a very informed response, whether we were discussing technique for playing acoustic piano or technological challenges and skills for playing my arranger keyboard (Korg PA4x). I never received any waffle, just straight to the point very well informed fact. The best piano teacher I've ever had. We covered classical music through to jazz and  world music. Jules is a very lovely human being to work with. I thoroughly recommend him."...

..."Four of my children have had Jules as their piano teacher through school years and achieved fantastic results with exams, musical development and personal growth. His style is really nuturing and he makes the lessons a lot of fun. The way he is always able to adapt to their individual needs is absolutely fantastic and somehow he manages to get them to do regular practice without me having to badger them...something  which I'll be foreveer grateful of as I always have to badger them about everything else! A truly excellent teacher,  FIVE STARS!"...

..."Jules has really helped me gain confidence and develop as a performer. I've worked with him for a few of years now and still look forward to every lesson. He's really helped me to go beyond what I thought I could do and I can't recommend him enough. He's not cheap but you get what you pay for. Highly recommended!"...
