Book informative Piano lessons with teacher Jacob Swindells in Herne Hill.
Hello! My name is Jacob and I am a professional piano teacher based in Herne Hill.
I am a down to earth guy offering professional tuition.
I like to make sure every one of my lessons are of the highest standard. I will always listen to my students and cater to their needs.
I am a very approachable person & I am always willing to listen to any questions or thoughts you may have.
I teach a very wide age range. I would however, recommend starting no younger than age 5.
I love a wide range of music & I try to make sure that this is reflected in my teaching. I will always teach you the styles that you love.
I offer hour lessons to all of my students as I believe that this is the best way to improve your playing in a short period of time.
I offer one-hour lessons to all of my students because I believe this gives us enough time to cover all of the necessary theory and song work in one lesson to see some great progress over a short period of time.
I am a vastly experienced piano player who holds a bachelor's and masters degrees in music from Oxford and Yale Universities, as well as associate and licentiate diplomas in piano from Trinity College London and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
I pride myself on providing enjoyable lessons for all of my students. I will always make sure every lesson is fun and enjoyable as well as being as informative as possible.
I tuition for students preparing for Music Theory exams (grades 1-8) as well as GSCE & A-Level exams in Music.
I currently do not offer lessons from home which means that I will travel to you for all of your lessons. I believe that this is a great way to learn and enables you to learn from a comfortable environment.
I am currently a mobile teacher which means that
I will travel to your home for lessons. This is a great way to learn because it means you are learning in a comfortable environment & from experience students who are comfortable whilst learning often make the best progress.
Music Shops in Herne Hill:
Sadly there isn't a great selection of music shops in the area. If you want more choice I would recommend travelling a little further into London.
The closest option would be South London Music which sells a wide range of musical equipment as well as sheet music and exam books etc. You can find them on 47 Grove Vale, Dulwich, London SE22 8EQ.
The only other option in the area would be Piano Lobby which specialises in piano sales and repairs. you can find them on Como Rd, Forest Hill, London SE23 2JJ. Their staff are always friendly so if you need help let them know.
Music Venues in Herne Hill:
Like music shops, when it comes to venues in Herne Hill, they seem to be few and far between. Below are a few that I can think of.
The most well-known venue in the area would be Off the Cuff which is a small venue/bar that often has live music events throughout the week and weekend. They are located on 301-303 Railton Rd, Herne Hill, London SE24 0JN.
The other option in the area would be The Electric Ballroom which is located in nearby Brixton. This venue tends to attract a lot more well-known acts and always has something on for everyone in a wide array of pf genres. You can find them on Hall Parade, Brixton, London SW2 1RJ.
