Some commonly asked questions:

Can I find a piano teacher near me? 

Yes. We have piano teachers across Brighton & Hove. Say hello and we'll find the right one for you.  

How much do your piano lessons cost? 

From £25 per hour.

I don't have time to learn piano music. How can I fit it in? 

You would only practice a small amount begin with. As long as it takes to brush your teeth. Fast forward 2 months and you would know how to play the piano.  

Am I too old to learn how to play the piano?

The oldest student we have taught was 96 and that worked wonderfully. Learning the piano as an adult is no harder than learning to dance, the ropes in a new job role or to use a new phone. Except, it's a lot more fun. Give us 10 lessons and you'll learn to improvise a 12 bar blues.

For younger students we start at 3 but all children are different. I guarantee that, with a bit of time and guidance, you'll get it.

You don't have to take any lessons after the FREE 1st piano lesson. Although, we are very confident that you will.


Let's meet Brighton Piano School's Head Teacher

Paul Hunter

Head Teacher - Brighton Piano School

Who are you? 
My name is Paul Hunter; a Brighton based piano teacher, pianist and composer. I have spent my adult life working in the music industry as an educator, composer, pianist, accompanist and conductor. I have also worked as a project development manager for a music based charity that provides specialist music notation to individuals with learning difficulties. I undertook an MA in music at the University of Sussex where I obtained a merit for my compositional portfolio. I now run PianolessonsUK's Brighton Piano School.

What are your goals for Brighton Piano School?
I aim to provide specialist piano tuition to students of all ages and abilities. The Brighton Piano School offers unique benefits to the student; highly qualified piano teachers with great piano studios, a large community of students and teachers, termly concerts and specially designed courses. The piano courses facilitate learning by exposing the student to all areas of piano playing: reading music, composition, theory, technique, and improvisation. The drop off rate for students is extremely low which lends testament to the piano courses.

What makes a good piano teacher?
What I ask of our piano teachers I demand of myself. I am friendly, approachable, understanding and good at listening. Communication is vital in education and it is important that these skills continue at management level. In return I ask that our piano teachers are well organised and respond to communication at the first available opportunity.  A good piano teacher must also be highly qualified. 
I often find that the initial meeting determines how likely the individual is to become a piano teacher with PianolessonsUK. One of the benefits to piano teachers is the training they will receive by joining Brighton Piano School.

What do you enjoy about the courses?
The courses are expertly written and are thorough in their approach to the acquisition of piano learning. Dynamics, composition, learning to read music and technique are learnt simultaneously. The techniques, seldom introduced so early but of vital importance, are provided straight away. The choice of piano music gives students access to classical, jazz, pop, Latin, film and much more so that the student becomes aware that piano music of all genres follows central tenets and rules that envelope all of music.

What do our piano students say?

"The Beginners piano course is so carefully designed."

"I've learned to play the blues, how to improvise, about piano technique and I've written a song. It's only been 15 lessons. Kevin is so good at explaining the pieces that even if I get stuck I know that at the next piano lesson the problem will be solved."

- Ambrosia, Brighton

"I am so lucky to have found a teacher with his expertise and great personality."

"As a 42 year old man with a history of health problems and an ambition to play the piano, it was a delight to find Jamie. He is patient, explains everything clearly and gives you tips to remember how to read music. On my first lesson I got such a friendly welcome and I felt at ease and less nervous immediately. I cannot recommend Jamie enough."

- Mark, Brighton

"Two more pianists blossoming as I type."

"My two children have recently started the piano lessons, adore the games and find it really fun. They are hooked!l - Thank you!"

- Emma, Hove
