How Our Student Selection Works

  • It is important to understand that spaces are limited. We have just a small team of piano coaches, dedicated to and trained in Tom’s proprietary method of teaching. So it is vital that we make sure we are a good fit for each other, that way we do not waste your time or ours.
  • An initial telephone consultation is arranged. Phone consultations are free of charge. We will answer of all of the questions and queries you have about learning to play piano. In addition, you will receive expert tips and free video tutorials.
  • During the telephone conversation, we will establish your level of competency and your goals. Once accepted as a student, we will book your first 1-2-1 session and our team will put together a lesson plan to take you to the next place in your musical journey.
  • Availability is strictly limited and the London Contemporary School of Piano always has a waiting list of prospective students. Despite the school’s popularity both with local and international students, our fees are modest. If YOU have a REAL PASSION for music and playing piano, this is a REAL opportunity.

Do you offer student discounts?

For young, aspiring musicians under the age of 18 who have a real desire to learn to play the piano, we have scholarships available. Because children’s lessons are often shorter, we operate reduced rates when teaching them.

Sponsorship for the scholarships comes courtesy of our wonderful donors, often themselves students at the school, and from our own profits. We are proud to say, we do not receive government grants.

To request scholarship applications send us an email or read | more… |.

“To be able to offer scholarships and give back to the artistic and cultural heritage of our society in today’s difficult climate, is something we are very proud of.” ~ Tom Donald
