The Ultimate Startup Piano Course

Much more than an entry-level piano course, you can expect to learn many of the unspoken facts about music. Some of our teaching methods are unknown even at leading music schools.

You will also learn the technical classical foundation to give you the full musical experience. Ours is an integrated music course and you will automatically be invited to join our group student master-classes, where you will meet like-minded adults who are learning to play piano.

with Tom Donald, LCSP founder

This option is a unique chance to study exclusively with Tom. Due to Tom’s huge waiting list, international demand and concerts worldwide, he is unable to take on many more students and lead times may be long. You may wish to consider taking an intensive course with Tom instead. (Option 2)

This course is subject to an application form, to highlight your musical goals and aspirations so Tom can plan your classes and repertoire. You will learn advanced improvisation mechanics & techniques as well as chord exploration techniques for enhanced musical confidence. These are Tom’s specialist areas, so we highly recommend this course if these subjects interest you.

Many of our members have enjoyed learning exclusively with Tom and have gained enormous benefit from his unique insights and specialised coaching strategies, which he and the London Contemporary School of Piano are renowned for.
