My two daughters have been having piano lessons with Mrs Lewin for the past 3 years. Over the past 6 months the girls have continued to learn through online lessons. I am so grateful for this opportunity and consistency provided by Mrs Lewin. The girls have still continued to learn at an excellent pace online. Mrs Lewin is kind and professional and the girls look forward to seeing her every week. Thank you Mrs Lewin for giving the girls a wonderful introduction to piano playing – long may it continue.
“Jonathan’s drum lessons are brilliant and help me improve. He also tells funny jokes!” – Joel, aged 9
“We are delighted with the progress our son has made. Jonathan’s teaching is fun, engaging and inspires a wide-ranging love and appreciation of music.”
Paul, Joel’s father
We are so pleased to have found Denise whose knowledge and superb teaching enabled both my daughters to pass grade 5 theory with distinction, even through remote learning during the lockdown period. Thank you, Denise, I would highly recommend you to others.
“Jonathan was recommended to us, to teach our son tuned and untuned percussion. He has an incredibly positive, patient and humorous approach. Our son loves playing percussion and has made great progress under Jonathan’s direction, initially in person and currently online. It is clear to us Jonathan has a passion both to play and to teach and this comes through at every lesson. Jonathan has taken the time to create a number of his own teaching materials to engage and educate which have been particularly useful to us. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jonathan to anyone considering learning percussion.”
As a latecomer to music, I wanted a teacher who would be supportive and work at a pace which matched my needs. Denise is perfect! She is extremely patient, supportive and encouraging, and most importantly flexible and understanding. Each week varies depending on my health (which can fluctuate), providing me with the option to explore music theory, which has enabled a greater variety of lesson types.
With the March 2020 Covid-19 lockdown starting two weeks after my first cello lesson, we moved to hold our lessons via Zoom, which worked exceptionally well. Not only does it save money and time in travel to a face to face lesson, it enabled the lessons to continue smoothly and we continued this style of lesson as it worked so well.
I cannot recommend Denise and her simple, timely and cost effective lessons enough.
Mr Lewin is great! He’s kind, interesting, fun, and really knowledgeable about all things percussion. The lessons are always really varied, and what I want to do matters to him – he’s absorbed my ideas into his lesson plans on numerous occasions. We have banter too – which adds to the great lesson vibe!!
He’s inspired me to join groups – some of which he has run, and some of which are run by his friends, who are also brilliant!
Denise is an excellent music teacher. She has taught my two children, now aged 15 and 11, for 6 years, taken them from zero to grade 4 piano and my daughter, the elder of the two, also to Grade 5 cello. My children are both quite different but Denise has been skilled at guaging level, style and pace, approach, prompts and guidance for each of them, fuelling their musical enthusiasm, as well as introducing them to new music and additional instruments. She teaches for the immediate goals whilst astutely keeping an eye on more distant possibilities and she does it all with her characteristic humour and enthusiasm.
