My Mission

Quality Piano Lessons

Drawing on my many years of teaching experienced I have developed a course of piano lessons ideally suited to beginner students, helping them to quickly progress through learning the basic skill sets required to play the piano with confidence. This approach blends technical exercises, music theory with the musical styles chosen by the student to get the very best results.

I teach flexibly to suit the student's needs & have experience in teaching children as young as 4, adults, people with learning difficulties and special educational needs. I strongly believe that whatever special requirements you need from your piano tuition – I can cater to them!

My Lessons

Classical, Jazz & Pop

I cover a wide range of different musical styles during my piano lessons, including classical, pop and jazz genres. My focus is helping my student to learn the music that inspired them to start playing the piano in the first place. This student lead approach enables me to ensure that my students really get the most out of their lessons, giving them the impetus to practice more often at home.

I am fun and friendly but also experienced; as well as making lessons enjoyable I also make sure that my teaching standard is as high as possible and that the student is getting as much as they can from their lessons.

Prices:


£17.50 per 1/2 hour
£35 per hour

Lessons are pay-as-you-go, weekly, fortnightly or as suits you.

Beginners & Advanced Students Welcome

I welcome students from the ages of 5 years old and upwards, including many adult learners, to piano lessons suitable for complete beginners or more advanced learners.

My Experience as a Teacher

My background as a musician started from a young age, as I grew up in a family of professional musicians so from early on, my life was rich with music. From being put on the stage from very young, whilst my Dad and Mum sang at gigs, I had a strong feeling even then that my life would be dedicate to music and being on the stage.

I was fortunate to be scouted for the gifted and talented selection in my school days for my musical ability, enabling me to be noticed early on and helping me work towards singing competition and touring choirs during my teenage years.

This is where I first got my love for being on the road and touring both nationally and internationally. During my later teenage years, I was then successful in getting into the regional folk band ‘Folkestra’, based at the local music venue the Sage Gateshead, as one of the singers and as an instrumentalist. Acclaimed Folk musician Kathryn Tickell headed up the band and it was here that I really started to learn my stage craft as a singer and musician in my own right, often doing sold out gigs with band and going on a national tour.

More About My Lessons

I went on to do further work in the regional youth choir ‘Quay Voices’, touring internationally and being successful in getting on to a three country project. This resulted in an album from the band coming together from the UK, Sweden & Brittany and then finishing with a show, at the Sage Gateshead once more. Once finishing my school education, I wanted to further my music career by studying academically and took Music Production at one of the top conservatories in the UK, Leeds College of Music, with a speciality in songwriting and in studio production.

Developing my craft further as a performer, writer and producer, I then went on to work professionally with my father Roly Johnson in the duo ‘Jess & Roly Johnson’ and played shows and festivals, building a warm sound and a strong platform, which all the time helped prepare my for a solo career. As a solo performer I have been able to perform across the UK and online around the world, opening for the likes of Alexandra Burke, playing at the Newcastle Arena’s 25th Birthday Celebration and recently featuring on TV web show ‘Nashville Meets World’, one of my next goal is to travel with my music to America.

Fast forward to 2021, the breadth of my experience with regards to teaching spans widely. After having completed a BA Honours degree in Music Production at Leeds college of Music, I went on to complete a Community Music traineeship at the Sage Gateshead and from there was able to become one of the project musicians teaching and leading across a wide range of classes and choirs within the music education centre and out in the community around Newcastle upon Tyne and the surrounding areas. To further my career, I then branched into a full-time business of my own teaching music privately and working within school and educational settings teaching music, taking many of my students through the ABRSM examinations.
