Book lessons with professional piano teacher Dan Somers
Hello! I'm Dan Somers, a professional piano teacher based in Bristol. I offer high-quality mobile piano lessons across different areas of Bristol.
I will always listen to what you want to learn and make sure we take a learning course that will help you achieve this
I teach students of all ages from all musical backgrounds. I would recommend starting no earlier than age 6 if you are learning to play.
I can teach in a wide variety of styles and love all genres of music.
I teach graded exams for my students who want to pursue them. This is something we will only learn if you want to.
High-quality piano lessons with a professional teacher in Bristol.
I recommend my half-hour lessons for students who prefer to learn in small doses. A couple of half-hour lessons per week is enough to see some good progress. I also recommend my half-hour lessons for young learners.
My hour lessons are the most popular option for my students and I would recommend these for anyone aged 10 and above. An hours lesson every week is enough to see some great progress over a few months.
'Dan has proved himself to be a very popular teacher both with his students and with the parents. His style is such that he engenders confidence in his student’s ability to learn new pieces of work and compose their own pieces. I’m often complimented by parents on both the uniqueness of the programme, in terms of its focus on providing music lessons for low-income families and on the ‘greatness’ of the teachers – none more so than Dan.'
'Over the last four years, Dan has successfully prepared the children for their grades while teaching them to love playing the piano music of all sorts, from classical to jazz and pop. They always look forward to their lessons, especially the improvisation session at the end.'
As well as studying classical piano growing up and achieving all of my grades, I studied at the London Centre of Contemporary Music and graduated with a BMus (Hons) in Music Performance and Production.
I love everything from classical to pop and jazz. This is always reflected in my teaching and I will always strive to teach you the styles that you love and enjoy.
I will always make sure we incorporate the music that you love to listen too during your lessons. I think that students who learn familiar music always tend to make faster learning progress.
I have a full CRB check & I am experienced in teaching young learners all the way to older more advanced learners.
Dan is a mobile piano teacher offering lessons across Bristol. He is able to provide piano lessons to students located in Westbury on Trym, Clifton, St Andrews, Montpelier, St Werburgh's, St Pauls, Hotwells or central Bristol.
This means that you can learn from the comfort of your own home. One of the most important aspects of learning is to feel comfortable whilst learning.

Bristol has long been known for producing some of the bests acts in the Uk. Here are a few that I would recommend.
Massive Attack is usually the first act that spring to mind as they are very widely known for their single "Teardrop" that has been featured in many movies and adverts. They don't like to be placed in one genre as you can really hear lots of different influences.
Portishead are another great act from Bristol who are very well known all over the world for their unique progressive style of music. They have charted on many occasions with various singles.
