A different approach to piano lessons

On average students here complete their first 18 month book in 10-12....

About the lessons

We ensure that learning the piano isn't a struggle

A sad fact about many music lesson programmes is that too many kids and teens quit early on.  They love music  but lose interest when presented week after week with outdated teaching practices.

When this happens tension  builds up within the household around practice which is often  exacerbated through a busy family schedule.  You will then ponder “Are lessons really worthwhile?”

Too often lessons become something which is tried for a while before motivation is lost for good. Statements like “It was just another fad” or “she stopped because she was bored just playing the same three exam pieces all year” are unfortunately all too common. 

It doesn’t have to be like this!

Our Approach

Making learning music fun and easy

The first and foremost objective of lessons here is to remove these ‘barriers’ to success – this above all else  is why families keep coming back here.

Kids and teens here aren’t stuck and getting  bored playing the same old songs week after week. They learn and master 3-6 pages of new music every single week from the beginning! There is a constant sense of forward ‘momentum’.



"Every other activity we tried she very quickly given up and this has been the one activity she has really excelled at. She actually looks forward to it every week"

Our Accelerated Piano Program is designed to make learning music feel easy!

Within 2-3 weeks of starting students are able to piece together then play a new song within minutes. The method here doesn’t just teach kids and teens the music before sending them off to get it right at home.. It also teaches them how to  ‘practice’- This is imperative if students are to make constant forward progress.

What’s more, there is the time to fully apply this during the 1 hour lesson itself under expert instruction. 

As such the first 180 or so songs for the 1st year are all learnt entirely at the lesson each week.  

There is no other music studio in West Lothian  which does this.   So don’t picture practice creating tension within your household.  This means at home your child will simply be rehearsing what they already know.  No confusion! 

This lets them actually enjoy playing music. And, after completing this much music just imagine the sight-reading ability they develop. This is the no 1 skill students need to learn new music fast!


Within 18 months it’s not unusual for students to be bringing in their favourite pieces to perfect. Be it ‘Eienaudi’ or Bach preludes that are to be played at a family wedding ceremony in front of 150 people or a recent or not so recent pop hit that they want to learn for their grandparent. S

Students who have previously self taught on YouTube are surprised at the ease of their transition here. 

"Isla has learnt all her grade one piano exam repertoire in a couple of months. This is very different to my experience as a child! No more sitting for 6 or more months playing the same tunes."

A calming, inclusive environment

Rather than mean and demanding, the teaching here is  friendly and entirely supportive of a range of personalities.

Due to our format, your child won’t feel under pressure when playing in front of the teacher.  This is the case whether they are introverted or perhaps a little questioning of their abilities..


“It was crucial to find a teacher Thomas would gel with. This was really important because Thomas is reserved by nature. It proved to be the correct choice because he is now thriving. It is a treat for us to hear him play all these pieces at home …”
