disappointed as if you contact me I may be able to help!
Many of my pupils take Associated Board Of The Royal Schools Of Music

I am currently on the supply list for Hampshire and Dorset Education
Authorities. The Music Peripitetic Service in both counties also hold
my curriculum vitae (Hampshire and Dorset). This means that I hold a
current CRB check for schools work.
I often find that when leading groups of musicians there are never the
right arrangements for your particular combination of instruments or
ability level. Those of you interested in playing with others may be interested to
know that the Innovation Trust are looking for young people of 18 to 25
to create their own bands. There is also a Rock School on the Isle of
Wight held each year.
I have experience in accompanying players for performances and
examinations. Please also contact me if you need musicians to join
groups, bands, orchestras etc.
I am a professional piano tuner (Newark) and teacher. I have just moved into permanent
flat accommodation and consequently need a digital instrument with double headphone
facility for teaching purposes. I have always been involved with acoustic instruments
and thought i might try a rent to buy scheme. I am familiar with the Clavinova having
practised and taught on one, but am open to suggestions. Touch and tone quality are
the primary considerations. Can you be of assistance.
Reply/ Hi Ian
The Clavinova range would certainly be a good
place to start...
The CLP330 or CLP340 are the ones you would
be most happy to teach (and play) on.
Another piano worth considering is the
This has a good piano sound and a realistic,
This costs a bit less than the Yamaha because
you can only buy it online.
Here's more details about it:
Thanks for your support and confidence boost , but I'm well aware of my
limitations . I have actually managed to play the opening of Fur Elise ( not the hard bit , just
the opening ) yet I still can't read a note. I learnt it by watching a guy teaching "how to" on you
I don't feel I'd ever have got that far by trying to sight read and play it . I know this is all
wrong , but I'm not a spring chicken anymore , and I don't have a spare 20 years of practice left
What more can I do Howard ??? Andy
Relpy/ Hi Andy
YouTube is great for learning the basics. But, after that, you
really need to learn how to read music.
Try to follow my free piano course as best you
can. The follow up to that is the Rocket Piano course by Ruthe Searle ... It's very
Yes I know I should learn to read music , but my tired old brain cells struggle with anything new
There is a good teaching book comprising four smaller books in my local music store , I may look at
it today .
If I were young I wouldn't hesitate , but as I said , I don't have 20 years of study and practice
left to spare ,
so I suppose I'm grabbing at all the shortcuts I can find . . I'll maybe give your course another
go too .
I actually have a 76 key Yamaha NP 30 , and I just love it to bits . There are no tricks or
or drum machines on it , it only really plays grand piano and some voices , but that's all I
I must say though , I never dreamt I would ever manage to play Fur Elise
( at least the opening , albeit very jerky ) so anything's possible I suppose .
I thought just like that when I first tried to play Streets of London on guitar 20 years ago . Now
I play it
almost as well as Ralph McTell . I hope the piano doesn't take as long Lol
Cheers for now Graham
