Didsbury Piano Lessons

My name is Peter Clare. I'm a full time pianist, keyboard player, songwriter and composer with 30 years professional experience. I studied both classical and jazz rock and pop. I perform as a solo pianist and accompanist in a wide variety of styles - often as a jazz pianist, and as band leader or member with a number of jazz, soul, swing and pop ensembles. Based in Didsbury, South Manchester I teach piano and keyboards in a broad range of styles including pop, rock, soul, latin, jazz, blues & boogie - woogie, modern and classical.

I have taught from the youngest beginners to very experienced professionals of, erm, not so young an age. My way of teaching is 'Student led' by which I mean that as the aims and abilities of each student vary so much, I tailor each students lessons to match. We work out what you want to achieve when we start, and then adjust this as you progress and perhaps start to discover stuff you'd never even thought of.
