Hello! I'm Michael Chang, a professional piano teacher based in Cambridge. I offer high-quality piano lessons in the Cambridge area.
I have had over 10 years professional experience and have played with Tinie Tempah, Stylo G, Yolanda Brown, Hil St Soul, Esmee Denters, to name a few, and have performed in venues such as BBC Live Lounge and Glastonbury Festival.
I believe that students of all ages should benefit from the therapy that playing a musical instruments offer, this is why I offer lessons to students of all ages and abilities from 4 onwards.
My roots started in the Classical grade system, however I do offer lessons in improvisation, jazz, gospel, blues, funk, and pop music.
Along with learning your favourite music, I can teach the ABRSM, Trinity and Rock School grade syllabus.

'Michael is a great teacher, he is teaching my 5-year-old son how to play the piano. He has a great deal of patience while making the lessons fun and rewarding. My son really enjoys going to his piano lessons and is making great progress under Micheal’s tuition.'
'Michael is cool, vibrant and relaxed, and has a friendly, positive way of teaching music. My daughter had done some piano before but wanted to do something more contemporary and jazzy. Michael’s approach is smart and intuitive. My daughter is very happy now and is keen to tinkle away and enjoy learning new skills rather than finding it a chore. There’s still attention to detail and basic piano discipline but because the context is different, I think she will come away with the sort of skill set which will allow her to enjoy and improvise music in the future. All good! Highly recommend!'
'Michael is a great teacher, he has taught me how to play the piano from scratch. We always do a variety of exercises and keep it exciting. I’ve learnt to sight-read, play chords and how to improvise. I feel I’ve covered so much more than learning to play and do the grades that I was expecting. He answers all my silly questions, and has a really vibrant attitude.'
