“I highly recommend London Music Institute’s piano course. Celine is a patient and great teacher who helped me not only progress but exceed my own expectations over my 4 months course. Will definitely be signing up again in the near future to continue my education”

“The London Piano Institute has enabled me to grow as a person and experience the true art form of music. Celine is one of my favourite teachers not only has Celine taught me to read and play the Piano but to freely develop with the music. I appreciate every moment I spend there and would not trade for anything else…
I had wanted to learn how to play the piano for some time however commitments had always been an issue, although with the flexibly of lesson times with the London Piano Institute I was able to pursue my goal. I have come a long way and I have a greater understanding and hold a high value on music since learning how to play the piano. I would always highly recommend Celine as a teacher and music mentor.”
“My experience with The London Music Institute has been a great one. Right from the beginning Celine took the time to understand where I was in my music skills and then designed a plan to help me improve. She has the ability to breakdown a piece that to me seems complicated and make it easy to understand. I have improved so much since starting lessons in January and would recommend The London Music Institute to anyone who is wanting to learn.”

“Before I started taking classes I was struggling with a few concerns that are probably pretty common: Will I really enjoy it or will it be like the music classes I had as a child? Will I find the time to play after work? Can I really learn to play the piano despite having no musical talent to speak of? Will I have to play dull children’s songs for years?
Today, I am so glad that I found Celine and that I made the initial step to take up classes. I am also proud of the progress we have achieved so far. Celine makes learning the piano a truly enjoyable experience – I am always looking forward to my next class. Also, I found playing the piano a great way to switch off after a busy day at work. The classes are the right mix of fun, inspiration, and pushing the student to overcome any temporary plateaus. The fear that I might have to stick to children’s songs also turned out to be wrong as we always find pieces to play that fit both my skill level and my personal taste. Hence, I can recommend to anyone to take up classes with Celine – you might be surprised how much you will enjoy it!”
“At the age of 29, with no previous musical experience, I decided to learn to play the piano. I am finding this new experience thorougly enjoyable – largely a result of the weekly lessons I have with Celine, an exceptional and inspirational tutor.Celine has provided me with the motivatation to focus my attention on learning and in a short space of time I have learnt to read music and play some well-known songs. Celine really cares that you are enjoying learning and she will build on your strengths (and confidence) whilst also polishing up your weaknesses.
Celine is both patient and supportive yet will also push you to develop your ability and learn new techniques. An excellent tutor who I cannot recommend highly enough!”

“When I decided to study piano at the London Piano Institute I had no idea what to expect. As a beginner I didn’t know if I would be able to play the piano. My attitude changed the very first day at the Institute. I had no idea that the lessons would be so challenging and enriching.
The main reasons why I chose the London Institute were because is one of very few places in London with programs for adult beginners; the availability of evening lessons and convenient location.
It is a very enjoyable, innovative and stimulating course. Celine’s expertise, articulate teaching style and passion for music make her lessons an absolute joy. She is a challenging tutor who combines both firmness and softness in her teaching style.
The London Institute has offered me a great opportunity to keep me motivated about playing the piano and I would have no hesitation in recommending Celine to anyone.”
