Dom Scohy

I think the most important thing is to enjoy learning something new. With this in mind, I always make sure my lessons are as informative as they are enjoyable.

I am an experienced tutor having been teaching for over 20 years to students of all ages and all musical tastes.

I can teach a very wide variety of music and I will always try my best to listen to the music that inspires you and help you achieve playing it.

You are always able to take a lessons whenever you like and my lessons are run on a pay as you go basis. This means you don't have to pay for multiple lessons in advance.

1/2 Hour Lessons


I only offer half-hour lessons as I strongly believe in little and often is the best way to learn. For those who are really serious about making progress, two lessons a week could even be a good choice. I will tailor make all of my lessons with the student in mind to make sure I am working to your needs.

What my students say

& why they love my piano lessons


'Dom is a fantastic piano teacher! It has been two years since I started to learn piano with him, and it has been a great experience so far. I feel very supported in my practise, and I have discovered an amazing world through the theory and practise I was not aware of!'

'Dom is super talented and so passionate about music and is a great teacher. He won’t just teach you how to read music and play, but how to understand and interpret music. His enthusiasm is infectious. My daughter really enjoys her lessons. I would recommend him to anyone.'

About Your New
Piano Teacher

Friendly, helpful and focused on helping you to rapidly learn how to play the piano.

I am an extensively experienced teacher who has been teaching for over 20 years. In this time I have covered just about everything you can think of. I regularly perform live as well as studying piano in the Royal Conservatoire of Brussels

I always like to make sure I structure my lessons on what you want to learn. I feel it is important to focus on the genres and music that you love as this is the best way to improve.

I feel there shouldn't be an age limit for learning music so my lessons are open to almost all ages. I would, however, recommend that children don't start to learn any younger than 5.

I have a wide range of experience in teaching both Beginners and Advanced players. I will always take the time to understand your current level then make a suitable lesson plan that works for you.
