ISM Registered Private Teacher ISM Full Member No. 77739 Enhanced DBS Disclosure Checked  17 years teaching experience since 2004


I have 15 years experience as a self-employed private piano teacher.  I work with all ages and abilities.   

Here’s a small sample of genuine comments my lovely students have said about me;


 James Dickens - "A great teacher who gave up his Fridays off to teach me.  If you are willing to work hard, Graham will steer you in the right direction.  Most importantly, he makes the whole experience fun, which is what music should be!"





 Emma Coulter-Hopkins - "Graham's piano lessons are fun and relaxed, he gears his lessons to suit his pupil's needs very well.  Highly recommend."









 Helen Moss - "Fab teacher, fab genuine guy.  Highly recommended" 





Theresa Holloway - "Graham taught both my daughters for several years, he's a fantastic piano teacher and is a lovely, easy going person!"






Melanie Booth - "Graham has been teaching my daughter for four years and she has progressed really well and we both think Graham is a lovely guy and a great teacher!  Would definitely recommend him!"








Neil Etherington - "Top guy, you just can't get any better teaching.  Fully recommend."








 Sally Gall - "Learning an instrument as an adult is rather daunting, and piano seems complicated - both hands, two lines of music, and feet as well!  However, Graham has made the experience such fun, and the weekly visit was always something to look forward to!  Graham's love of piano and all types of piano music is infectious and, somehow, progress is made without you even really knowing it's happening.  Gradually, step-by-step, techniques and expression develop, with Graham's guidance and steady encouragement.  Thank you Graham for making this such a fun experience!"


 Bill Hicks - "Thanks for your time and patience over the last few weeks and also for the flexibility on getting the lessons together.  I very much enjoyed the hour or so with you over the last six weeks.  You have given me more confidence and made me realise I need to relax my approach to playing the piano.  During the short time you have introduced me to various techniques which I am sure will help me as I move forward."


 Balram Mistry (age 8) - "I like playing the piano and I like Graham teaching me.  I like Graham teaching me because he is better than my dad.  He is better than my dad because my dad doesn't write the numbers.  There is nothing I dislike."

 Annette Evans - "Graham gave time and effort to make sure my daughter had the right piano / keyboard to practise on, which was greatly appreciated.  He is patient and tries various techniques to encourage and improve her playing.  He makes my daughter put in effort but will try to make the lessons fun too.  He communicates / feeds back well." -



Alice Kidd (age 12) - "Graham is a great teacher.  He is kind, and patient, and is very good at playing the piano.  I feel that I have progressed immensely since I first started lessons with him.  I really enjoy and look forward to going each week and learning something new."

 Pauline Gillespie - "I think Graham is an excellent teacher.  Not only does he teach you what notes to play but also how to perform a piece of music.  He is a great mentor and listener, and very passionate about his music and especially playing the piano.  Graham is very keen for this passion to develop within his students."


 Sofia Pivaral-Booth (age 8) - "Graham is a very good teacher and I'm glad to have him as mine.  Graham is also a very patient teacher and I find it easy to follow all the steps.  Graham has had a lot of experience teaching the piano and now is brilliant."

Gemma Carter - I am progressing well and even from the first lesson started to play with both hands.  Graham is patient and kind.  He is a talented musician with an intuitive approach to teaching.  Not only the practical elements but he also keeps an open mind to the emotional and even sometimes spiritual effects that unfold too.  Graham keeps things light and open.  To learn any instrument is like embarking on an unknown path with many ups and downs and so far Graham has proven himself to me as a knowledgeable, trustworthy and friendly companion to guide me on a journey such as this."


 Charlotte Holloway (age 11) - "I feel comfortable and relaxed when I play the piano even though Graham is quite firm and likes to do a good job on each piece.  He is very encouraging and gives me a lot of confidence and support.  He is very friendly and always greets me with a smile!"

 Abi Holloway (age 9) - "Graham is very patient when I'm struggling.  He doesn't give us too many pieces a week to learn but it is still challenging."


Tilly Roberts (age 14) - The books of music Graham chooses are challenging but manageable, and his methods of teaching are enough for you to progress but not too fast that you feel stress and under pressure."

Richard Aldous -  "It has been a fantastic re-introduction to playing the piano again after such a long break, and I am delighted to have progressed as much as I have.  Thanks for your tuition, advice, and of course, patience that you have shown throughout."





 George Catlow - "I have enjoyed what I have done and I don't regret giving it a go.  I want to thank you for all the help and encouragement.  If my lifestyle changes and I spend more time in Newbury near the piano, I will make contact again and see if you have room for me in your lessons plan.  In the meantime, best wishes to you and thank you again for all the enjoyable lessons."



Katie O’Callaghan (age 8) - "Graham is a very good teacher and I love my piano lessons."
