Our Core Mission Is To Unleash Your Musical Abilities
Without The Struggles Associated With Traditional Piano Lessons.
GUARANTEED PIANO SUCCESS
Our members have all succeeded at piano and many experience spectacular results. We have been doing this since 2007, when we first opened our doors.
Your choice: Is this something you want to do? Or will you continue dreaming of being an accomplished pianist?
Real musical success on the piano might seem like an unrealistic dream for many people and it’s no surprise given traditional piano teaching methods which have failed many piano students over the years.
In the 21st Century, no-one wants to sit at the piano and play “Yankee Doodle”. What you need is someone to show you the piano chord system and in as little as 5 classes, you too can play the piano competently. You won’t yet be a Jools Holland or Elton John but you’ll be able to play some of their songs, as well as music from Bach, Adele, Chopin, Beatles and Oscar Peterson.
The Chord System is built into your first 10 lessons as according to the London Contemporary School of Piano 101 Syllabus and Program. Isn’t this a much better investment than old fashioned piano lessons?
To ensure you can achieve this, you'll need to agree to some very basic points so we can deliver this amazing progress to you and you can start a musical journey that will truly fulfill your passion for music.
- You will need to practice, although less so than with traditional methods and it’s a really enjoyable practice which is way more interesting and productive than the piano methods you have been exposed to in the past.
- You need to show up and be organised enough to answer emails or texts to schedule your classes in advance. We are flexible and open 6 days a week from morning until evening, so we give you every opportunity to do this very easily once you beat the waiting list and become a member of our musical family.
- You need to be open to learning new musical and artistic ideas because for some people this is very challenging, they just want to hear the same music day in and day out, and that makes it hard to develop new piano and creative skills.
Our initial 101 syllabus includes 6 steps and takes place over 10-15 classes.
This is a revolutionary piano course and these are the steps we take to ensure amazing success!

It’s worth noting this has NEVER happened since we opened our doors in 2007. If this would ever happen in the future it would more than likely be because of a violation of these 3 agreements.
