My Mission

Fun and Relaxed Learning

I like to try and ensure that my lessons are informative but relaxed and fun at the same time. I feel that learning an instrument should be fun and I try to keep it this way in my lessons.

I always tailor my lessons to meet the needs of that specific student. I understand that we each learn a little differently and love different areas of music, as such I like to make sure you're always learning songs you like by artists that you enjoy.

My Experience as a Teacher

I have been a professional Teacher/Performer since 2011 and currently have achieved a BA Hons in Contemporary Popular Music. I have experience teaching piano in a private setting as well as working in schools and teaching entire classes how to play the piano.

I've been fortunate enough to work alongside students from all walks of life and I love being a part of their musical journey and watching them grow. You'll always be learning material that you enjoy which helps keep motivation and allows for progress to be made.

As well as teaching both inside and outside of schools, I have also had a part working as a musician for a few small TV Adverts. This wide range of teaching and performing experience has proven invaluable in providing the best quality lessons possible.

More About My Lessons

I have studied and currently achieved a Grade 8 at Distinction level through Trinity Rock School. As well as this I also have a Grade 5 in Music Theory through ABRSM. I like to ensure my lessons have a nice balance of practical elements as well as insight in to the music theory and the behind the scenes too.

Being a full time piano teacher I am able to offer very flexible teaching hours and lessons plans that work around your lifestyle. I can also play the guitar as well as offer music theory classes, so collectively I believe I can give you the tools you need to grow and develop as an all-round musician!

I am passionate about teaching music and love what I do. My lessons are always tailored around the student, but with emphasis on keeping the lessons as fun and relaxed as possible. Whether that's studying Classical Composition or Rocking out to your favorite Pop song, having fun is crucial to making progress on piano.

Melodi Scarsbrook

Hello! My name is Melodi Scarsbrook. I am an experienced music teacher and pianist, welcoming students of from 7 years old and upwards to attend individually tailored piano lessons.

I have a BA(Hons) Degree in Professional Musicianship, as well as many years of experience learning and performing both classical and popular music.

I started having music theory and piano lessons when I was 9 and won a scholarship to study at a Music and Art School (ATSO) in Turkey when I was 14. At this school, I had a conservatoire style music education and often performed at recitals as a solo piano player or as a choir singer. After passing my ABRSM Grade 5 Music Theory I moved back to the UK to study A levels in Music, Music Technology and English Literature at the Bournemouth and Poole College. During my time at college, I passed my ABRSM Grade 8 Piano and Grade 8 Singing exams.

I then went on to study BA(Hons) Professional Musicianship, specialising in vocals at BIMM Bristol. During my years at university, I performed with many different bands as a keyboardist and as a singer. After graduating I have continued to work on advanced vocal techniques and piano skills.

I continue to write my own music and have gained a dedicated online following. I have performed at Harbourside Festival and at many famous music venues in Bristol such as the Fleece, Thekla and SWX. My songs have been aired on BBC Radio(Bristol), Hard Rock Hell Radio (London), Rock Rage Radio(USA).

I have been teaching adults and children for 4 years. My lessons are tailored toward students' individual goals and musical interests. I encourage my students to choose their own repertoire.

Students that I have prepared for graded exams and university auditions have been highly successful. I can help students work towards ABRSM or Rockschool graded exams if they wish to do so. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any questions about your own learning.

You can contact me on [email protected] if you have any questions or are interested in booking your first piano lesson with me.
