"What I really enjoy about my piano lessons with Jayne is the mood and atmosphere that you can capture in a room when you play a piece right. It gives me a challenge to do it at home, whether that be preparing for exams or learning new jazz pieces, and it's a sense of satisfaction when you can play them right as well. I love learning new songs in different styles. If you are thinking about having piano lessons with Jayne, I say go for it. Get in touch today because you definitely won't regret it!"
"I'm 30 years old, and I have decided to play piano quite late on. I've never played an instrument before but it's something that I've always wanted to do, and the reason I've wanted to play piano is just to be able to relax when I get home, and play something that sounds good but also when friends come round, we can have a bit of a sing and get a party going. It's something that I'm really, really enjoying doing, and it's thanks to Jayne for teaching me. I definitely recommend it. If you are thinking of doing it, Jayne has taught me a lot of good techniques. Give it a try!"
"We are really pleased with my daughter's ability and confidence in playing the music pieces you've been teaching her. Thank you, you are a brilliant teacher."

"Jayne is a great teacher with a sound knowledge of what she is teaching. She encourages my children to do their best and gets the best out of them as a result. They enjoy her lessons which are well organised and the perfect balance of fun and serious learning. Jayne maintains their interest and enthusiasm throughout with a steady progression through each grade level and she finds music that my children not only enjoy playing but that challenges them too. I recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat"
"I have a 13 year old daughter who has been having piano classes with Jayne on Zoom. From the start, Jayne's friendly approach made my daughter feel comfortable. Even though it's online, Jayne creates a fun and interesting learning environment. The convenience of online lessons has been a big advantage for us. No travelling means we save time, and the flexible scheduling suits our busy lives. I've seen amazing progress in my daughter's piano skills since she started with Jayne, Her love for music has grown and she has come on leaps and bounds. Jayne's online piano lessons on Zoom are a great option for young musicians to learn and improve with a supportive tutor who is very knowledgeable."
"I've known Jayne in both a personal and a professional capacity. Jayne has been teaching me piano since June 2022, but since that time we have also developed a personal friendship! In a professional capacity, Jayne is patient, organised, and punctual. She has always been accommodating of my individual learning needs and she is always upbeat, extremely encouraging and helpful. Personally, Jayne is warm, kind, and passionate about what she does, and I am very glad to call her my friend."

"I was skeptical about online piano lessons at first, but I was surprised by how effective they were. Jayne was knowledgeable and patient, and the virtual lessons allowed me to learn at my own pace. I'm so glad I decided to give it a try!"
- NATALIE K.
"I've always wanted to learn how to play the piano, but I never had the time to go to lessons. Online piano lessons were the perfect solution for me. I could learn from my own home and plan lessons around my work. I highly recommend it."
"I was worried that I wouldn't get the same level of feedback and support from an online piano teacher as I would in person, but Jayne is amazing. She was able to spot my mistakes and help me correct them, and gave me plenty of encouragement along the way. I've made great progress with my lessons!"
"I'm so grateful for the online piano lessons I've been taking. Jayne is fantastic, and she has been able to challenge me and push me to improve my skills. I am a lady in my sixties who had never tried to play piano before, and I never thought I'd be able to learn so much online, but the experience has been wonderful."
- MARGARET O.
"As someone who is new to piano, I was intimidated by the idea of having lessons in person. Online piano lessons made the experience so much more comfortable for me. I was able to start at my own pace and build my confidence over time. I'm excited to continue my lessons and see how much I can learn!"
"We were searching for an online piano instructor for our son, and Jayne's Zoom piano lessons were recommended to us by a friend. She was gushing about how great a teacher Jayne is with her daughter, and how patient, warm, and talented she is. We requested for our son to try some lessons and over the past year he has gone from learning to read music to now being confident enough to play piano pieces in concerts. Jayne breaks things down so they are easy to understand for the pupil. She can see what stage the student is at and teaches them according to their level. Connecting with students, especially over video calls, can be difficult to achieve but Jayne does this easily while making learning fun. We highly recommend her if you are looking to learn to play the piano with a compassionate and caring teacher."

"I recommend Jayne's online piano lessons to anyone looking for a friendly, professional teacher who produces excellent results. I find her teaching style perfect for me! After initially feeling nervous before my first lesson I quickly realised there was no need to worry as Jayne's warm and welcoming personality made me feel at ease straight away. I've improved so much since starting my lessons with her and always can't wait for my next one!"
"Jayne is a great piano teacher who encourages her pupils and takes a real interest in them. She has made piano lessons a pleasure although still challenging which keeps you interested and helps you make more effort to reach your goals. I like having something to work towards. My daughter has also been having lessons with Jayne too, she absolutely loves it and looks forward to the lesson all week. We both started as beginners and had never played any piano before but I have been so impressed with how much we have improved and my daughter is currently preparing for her initial grade piano exam. It is amazing that she can do this all online without leaving home. I would not hesitate to recommend Jayne to any adults and children who want to learn the piano."

"I wasn't sure if my son would enjoy classes on Zoom, but he absolutely loves them. He has learnt a lot and is loving playing his keyboard. It's much more convenient for us, and safer than in-person lessons too."
"Since I've been having piano lessons with Jayne I have improved a lot. The lessons have given me a good structure and sense of direction. Jayne is very friendly, professional and knowledgeable. The lessons are always fun and interesting and I go away from each lesson feeling that it's benefitted me. I started off as a beginner and didn't know much about the piano. After a lot of practice and help from Jayne, I'm now able to play most of my favourite songs which is amazing! If you're thinking of having piano lessons I would highly recommend Jayne to anyone. She is an excellent teacher."
- L. H.
"I started playing the piano last year with Jayne and it's been a brilliant experience. I've loved learning, the lessons are fun and friendly, and it gives me a safe space to learn. I've found that playing the piano helps me to relax and takes me away from my work. Exploring different genres through the piano, like jazz for example, has been fun and interesting. I've also recently passed my Grade 1 exam which has given me a sense of achievement and I'm currently preparing to sit my Grade 2."
"My piano lessons are fun and I really enjoy them. I learn more things in every lesson. My teacher Jayne helps me loads when she teaches me the pieces and she is really kind and friendly. She is very patient and takes her time with me to make sure I get things right."
"I can't recommend Jayne highly enough. She is an excellent teacher who is very professional, patient and also fun and friendly too. Jayne has a wealth of musical knowledge and I have benefitted greatly from my time with her. 😊"
"Brilliant teacher, very creative and hard-working who delivers quality, fun and engaging lessons to her students. Jayne understands extremely well what her pupils' strengths and weaknesses are, and is able to create engaging lessons that are tailored to each of her students' needs. She is a great motivator who knows how to captivate students with lessons they are interested in, but also push them to go the extra mile, helping and encouraging them to face the more challenging aspects of their musical development."
"I was taking lessons with another teacher in person and didn't get much out of it so lost interest. Before giving up completely I decided to change tutors and started taking online piano lessons with Jayne. I am amazed at how far I have come. I can now read music fluently and am playing confidently. I am also doing a virtual piano exam this month. Lots of fun learning a rewarding worthwhile skill. Well worth a 5 star 💫"
"My daughter had previously been to other piano teachers, but Jayne is the one who has really motivated and inspired her. My daughter loves her lessons and is learning so much. I wish I'd had a teacher like this. Jayne is very warm and friendly, I would highly recommend her fun and inspiring lessons to anyone wanting to learn the piano."
"Jayne is a lovely supportive teacher, she is great with teaching children and adults alike. She is always so patient and has a fab way of passing on her extensive knowledge. My daughter has been having lessons with her for a few years now. She loves the weekly lessons and is taught to an extremely high standard. I 100% recommend Jayne for anyone who is thinking about having piano lessons xx"
"My 8 year old daughter has been studying piano with Jayne, and at present she is training for a piano exam. Jayne is friendly and professional, always helpful and patient with my daughter. She goes above and beyond for the students. The lesson content is great, and keeps our daughter interested and enjoying it. She has been using a keyboard at home to practice but has now asked for a baby grand piano!! I would wholeheartedly recommend Jayne's lessons. It is easy to see that she really enjoys teaching and passes the enthusiasm on to the students."
- JONATHAN W.
"I can't recommend Jayne enough. She is a very patient, kind and friendly teacher. She's really easy to talk to and cares about the success of her student. She makes learning fun. You have the option of sitting exams if you want to which is great. She teaches all kinds of music, like classical, jazz, chart, modern, as well as older traditional music etc. Also, music theory which is so useful. Every lesson is planned around the student and it is great to have a genuine teacher who goes above and beyond for her students. You leave the lessons having learned lots of new things, in a good mood feeling happy and inspired. A++++++"

"I have wanted to learn how to play piano for a long time and earlier this year, for a New Year's resolution, I decided it was time to find a teacher. After searching local teachers online I found Jayne and I really liked the friendly feel of her website. I wasn't disappointed when I started my lessons with her. She makes learning fun and gets great results. I was amazed to be playing with two hands in my first lesson!"
"Thank you for helping my son prepare to sit his piano exam. He has enjoyed having something to work towards and challenging himself to keep improving and becoming a better pianist."
