I am a composer and musician and at the age of 16 I was one of the youngest students to study percussion at the Royal Northern College of Music. After graduating I started working in London as a Freelance percussionist in all styles of music including regular work with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and the London Sinfonietta. I became the last Solo Percussionist with Sir Peter Maxwell Davis’s contemporary ensemble: The Fires of London. I was commissioned to write music for Sir John Gielgud’s reading of Lear’s Nonsense Poetry. In 1981 I started working with Steven Berkoff (Actor/Director) as composer/performer and collaborated many of his stage, TV and radio productions including: West, Greek, On the Water Front, Berkoff’s Messiah and Richard II. One of my first compositions was a Vibraphone solo called ‘Blues for Gilbert’. I am currently releasing some new recordings and composing an exciting new musical called: Seven and a Half www.*** ;

Hi. My name is Tarquin www.*** I teach an assortment of musical threads, mainly piano and theory, and also in composition, be it songwriting or film soundtracks. I am a flexible teacher, in that I try to meet the learner wherever they are at, and seek to teach them in a way that suits their learning style. My background is both classroom teaching and ono-to-one peripatetic and I have taught throughout all Key Stages and all abilities. I am also well versed in Music Technology (and have taught it) which I use to create soundtracks, and ambient pieces.
I am a believer in rewarding effort and thus discipline is a firm asset in my students. I am both congenial and engaging as a tutor. My sense of humour is unique and perhaps it is why I love Music full stop!
I'm also a teacher of the French Horn at the Centre for Young Musicians at Morley College London and have have been DBS checked for my school and for the CYM by the Incorporated Society of Musicians (ISM). I am a member of the NEU/MU and ISM

I'm a trainee Music Therapist studying at Guildhall School of Music and Drama, enrolled as a jazz pianist. Piano has always been my passion, achieving Grade 8 when I was only 11. Since then I have studied at Newcastle University achieving a First Degree in BA (Hons) Music before working at Oakham School as their Graduate Musician. I'm an award winning composer (NMSW Young Composer Award 2015) and an award winning performer (STAGE Edinburgh Award 2018: Timpson: The Musical) who also works extensively as an audio engineer and podcast producer. At 23 I'm a young, enthusiastic face who can offer in-face and online teaching.
I worked as a jazz piano tutor at Oakham School but also for early lessons in classical. Asides from this I tutored KS3 music and music theory classes up to Grade 8 ABRSM.
As a music therapist I have to work to try and compliment everybody's innate musicality. Because of this I can easily adapt teaching to fit the needs of the student. I am a great believer in off-the-book learning and have seen myself the benefit of taking classical skills (scales, harmony, technique) and applying them to aural learning and improvisation. I think that the piano is something that anybody can love if they have the right person to teach them that.
Music lessons in London, UK.
A music graduate and post-graduate teaching piano, drum kit, percussion, accordion and GCSE Music.
I've taught flute as a peripatetic teacher since the age of 17 and trained as a secondary music teacher in my home town of Sydney, Australia. I have since worked in secondary schools and more recently as Director of Music in several schools in the UK and abroad. I am currently Director of Music at a London Preparatory School. I believe studying music should be primarily about enriching one's life, and aim to make learning about theory and composition as practical and fun as possible. Music requires precision and exacting skill but I believe it is possible for everyone to improve their appreciation and understanding of music. Music is an incredible means of self expression and helping students understand more than just the technical elements is very important to me.
I have worked with a wide age range of students, from pre-schoolers to adults. Every person is an individual and I will tailor our lessons to your needs and aims. As a parent to a child with ASD and Irlen syndrome, I am able to apply strategies to assist other pupils with similar needs and have an appreciation of particular challenges which can arise from these.

We guarantee small classes – no bigger than 16 children in the main school and nine per class in Reception. We believe that this is integral to children establishing strong relationships with their teacher, getting the support they need, developing a strong work ethic and both maximising and achieving their potential.
Classes are made up of children from a wide range of backgrounds and abilities, but the one thing they have in common is motivation. We do not compare children with one another; we challenge them against their own goals and next steps. This allows children to feel safe, be creative and be curious instead of managing anxiety about ‘not keeping up’. Happy, confident students are available to learn – they develop a rich and positive sense of who they are and can be.
Each class has a name:
Sprites (Reception) Pegasus (Year 1) Dragons (Year 2) Unicorns (Year 3) Griffins (Year 4) Minotaurs (Year 5) Centaurs (Year 6) Chalkers (Years 7-9)
