Piano/Keyboard Teachers in Chelmsford

Keyboard and Piano - Individual & Class Lessons
Hi my name is Tyler Mair.I am a piano teacher at Allegro music academy based in Colchester.I have been a student with the academy ever since I started playing keyboard then piano for about 12 years. I have learnt many different styles of genres which all range from their different difficulties.I have also finished a music diploma course at college which I have learnt many techniques to technology, live performance and how to enter the music business.I am in the middle of doing my degree specialising in film music which I am finding very interesting on how different it is compared to just normal pieces of music such as pop and rock songs from bands or solo performers. Also it includes many other avenues such as conducting, sound engineer and having your own studio and much more.I enjoy learning film and musical scores and pieces as they are very challenging due to so many technical traits within the piece due to when the scene changes or the feeling of the characters.

Alex Linale
Piano - Individual Lessons

I started playing piano at around seven years old, where I was taught to play by my grandfather. Following this I took up traditional classical piano lessons with many great teachers, and over the years I have built a style of playing designed around jazz improv and gospel with a heavy romanticism influence.

With a great interest in the theory of harmony and phrasing I have studied and analysed the works of many composers, everyone from Debussy and Brahms to Ahmad Jamal and Bill Evans, and this has helped me to understand not only contemporary music but also to gain a better understanding of classical harmony.

I am happy to teach all styles of music, whether that be modern pop, classical or jazz, and can either prepare students for grades or simply help them become the player that they have always wanted to be. My style of teaching is a laid back approach, based on improving musical performance, technique and rhythm with simple studies and practise methods proven to work.

Jo Philpot

Piano, Cello, Vocals & Theory - Individual & Class Lessons

Hi my name is Joanne. Throughout my university life and to date, I have taught pupils in singing and piano. I teach a variety of styles from classical to modern, pop, jazz, either with or without reading music. I believe it is important to teach with an open approach to ensure the pupil enjoys their musical journey as best they can, whether that is sitting exams, or playing for fun.
I have also helped run the choir whilst my children were at primary school and also accompanied various students for the music exams.
