Welcome, my name is Jonathan Draper. I am a professional piano teacher in Sheffield. I would be delighted to teach you how to play the piano. Get in touch below to get started.
Hello! I'm Jonathan Draper, a professional piano teacher based in Sheffield. I offer quality piano lessons for learners of all ages.
I will always make sure my lessons are as enjoyable for you as they are for me. Enjoying what you learn is the most important thing to see progress.
I have a host of experience in teaching all ages of student, however, It is best that young learners start no earlier than the age of 6.
Music is my passion so with that in mind, I am able to teach a wide range of genres from Jazz to pop to rock and everything in-between.
I also welcome advanced learners. If you have a specific piece of music or a specific technique you want to learn we will create a lesson plan that works best for your needs.
High-quality piano tuition servicing the whole of the Sheffield area.
My half-hour lessons are best suited to young learners and those who want to learn at a steady pace due to other commitments.
My one hour lessons are the most popular option and are suited to those who wish to expand their knowledge and improve at a high pace and perhaps have plenty time to practice in their own free time
I am a highly qualified teacher having gained grade 8 distinction in Piano, Cello & Music theory. I also have an A level in music as well as over 5 years experience in teaching.
My approach to teaching is very simple. That is to teach my students based on their own musical preferences, making my lessons fun and engaging for my students.
Beginner students are more than welcome to take lessons, I have a lot of experience in helping beginners progress to more advanced players.
More experienced players are also welcome to take lessons with me as I have plenty of experience in helping experienced players tighten up their technique and achieve more difficult goals.
Most of my lessons take place at my home teaching space on Watt Lane (S10 5RB). I think this is a great place to learn to play the piano because it is a relaxed and calm teaching space in which you will feel at home. It is also accessible via public transport. Simply take the 51, 51a or the 751 and get off at the Darwin lane stop, from here to place is only a short walk.
You can see where I am located by looking at the map below. My full address will be disclosed upon booking your first lesson with me. For more information don't hesitate to email me on [email protected].
