Hello, my name is Neil James and I am a professional piano teacher based here in Swindon. What I offer is an approach to learning the piano that firstly is fun but also aims to empower and build confidence in children and for that matter all my students.

"Hey, Neil asked me to write a few words about the lessons I have with him. Well – they are pretty cool. I asked him if we could concentrate on composition with regards to rhythm. I love R&B and was the main reason for learning to play. Well too date I have had 4/5 lessons and am really pleased with the way things are shaping up. I think what helps is the instrument. Neil has got one of these electronic piano’s with all the bells and whistles and it makes for some really interesting lessons – especially for someone like me.

I want to say a massive thank you to Neil who has just help me achieve Grade 5 piano in the last few days. Wow, what can I say I have achieved Grade 5 and am so happy. Neil’s patience, guidance and his learning programme were brilliant. Anyone looking to learn should look no further than here. ” without you none of this would have been possible." - Kenes (16)
