Piano lessons in Hove
Hi there! My name is Callum Rogers, and I am a classically-trained pianist from Liverpool. I have a First Class BA in Music, and I am a recent graduate of the University of Leeds, where I studied an MA Music Performance under Jill Crossland, who has recorded all of the Bach Preludes and Fugues, one of which being used for the famous Hannibal film. I played in varying ensembles and arrangements, accompanied by a Dissertation at the end of the year. I finished with a Merit. I was also granted the Ernest and Luther Gaunt Award after a performance of Debussy’s Estampes.
I have lots of varied performance and teaching experience, and I have been fortunate enough to have received masterclasses from, and performed alongside world-renowned pianists such as Stephen Hough, Joanna MacGregor and Richard Uttley. I have a particular interest in French piano repertoire from around the turn of the 20th century, however I have experience performing older piano concertos and lots of works as a part of small and large ensembles. My guilty pleasure at the moment is Jazz; something I look to work on over the next few years!
As a teacher, my main objective is to make sure that as musicians, we never lose sight of why we began playing in the first place: because of our unreserved love of music. Whether your aim is to go through ABRSM graded examinations, or whether you want to play for pleasure, I will bring all of my enthusiasm and experience to each lesson to help you achieve your goals.
As I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, I’m classically trained, and my speciality is turn of the 20th Century French music, but I’m currently broadening my repertoire with my new Real book (finally!) and some Scarlatti Sonatas; to learn from both ends of the spectrum!
Thanks for reading,
