Piano,Lessons,adults,edinburgh,beginner,fun,Piano Lessons for Adults

We understand that most adults wish they had started having piano lessons when they were a child. Some adults did play when they were younger but decided to give it up for various reasons. Whatever the situation, you’re never too old to start playing the piano again or start from scratch, or even pick up from where you left off.

What most adult players don’t realise is that Morningside School of Music teaches more adults than we teach children! It’s true, we have ever age you can imagine, from people in their 30’s to retiree’s looking to pick up something new. It’s the fashionable thing!

The piano is a fantastic instrument whatever style you decide to play. You may even decide to set yourself a challenge and go through the grades as an adult learner. We are more than happy to help you find out exactly what it is you would enjoy playing most, and then help you get on the road to being a fantastic musician. We treat every single client differently, depending on the musical taste, still of learning and reasons for wanting to play. Fun is a must!

Our highly qualified piano teachers offer private 1-2-1 piano lessons from complete beginners to a very advanced level from noon till 9pm, seven days a week (9am to 9pm at weekends), so we will always be able to accommodate a time that suits you. Try out a piano lesson and see if you enjoy it, we are sure you will be desperate to keep going, as music is very infectious!

To teach children from age 4+, we have specially trained, highly qualified piano teachers who can educate your child through distinctive piano grades or a slightly more relaxed introductory method based on your child’s age and preference. Every child is assessed and taught individually based on how they would best enjoy learning piano.

We can teach classical grades through the ABRSM Piano Graded Syllabus, as well as the Rockschool Piano Syllabus, both of which are Scottish Qualifications Authority approved for use in both state and private schools. Our Edinburgh piano lessons are made fun and easy for all our younger clients. We have specific after school slots available as well as early evening and weekend; we can always find a time that suits parent and child. Why not book your little boy or girl in with us for a piano lesson to see what they think, most children are desperate to come back! The number one rule at Morningside School of Music is that ‘learning MUST be fun!’

All of our piano teachers are highly experienced and qualified in teaching the Scottish Qualifications Authority high school music curriculum. We can help your teenager through National 5, Higher and Sixth Year Study music practical and theory exams. We have been doing it since 1997 with many of our pupils going on to study music at degree level at some of the most prestigious universities in the world such as Oxford, Cambridge, Bath Spa, Berklee and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

We not only concentrate on the practical elements required for school exams during our private 1-2-1 piano tuition, but we offer a wealth of knowledge and guidance for theory exams.

If your teenager has chosen different subjects at school and decided to leave music out, but still wants to learn the piano from scratch or continue their studies, we can help on a whole range of levels making the steps to mastering piano, fun and easy. Our piano tutors, teachers and professors are very friendly and professional, making lessons on the piano extremely fresh and exciting.

Our Principal piano teacher, Dr. Jacob Spence BMus, MMus, PhD (Ed) is also a lecturer at the internationally acclaimed Royal Conservatoire of Music in Glasgow. Dr. Spence is also a violinist and orchestral composer.

Learning the Piano

The piano is without a doubt; probably the most characteristic of all music instruments played across the world today. The instrument’s dexterity and ability to facilitate all styles of music, make it one of the most important instruments of study for our many clients at Morningside Shcool of Music, here in Edinburgh.

Like any discipline, time and patience are required, however, over our 20 years of teaching, we have developed a fast, fun and engaging approach to learning to play the piano, regardless of our client’s experience of age.

We offer the ability to obtain qualifications through carrying out graded syllabi. You may have heard of piano grades before, well our specialist teachers operate with such exam boards as the ABRSM, Trinity and RSL to ensure that your qualifications, should you wish to take the graded route of learning, is of the most academic and future-proof possible.
