I’d always said after leaving school that at some stage I would learn to play a musical instrument, so when my brother bought me a keyboard for Xmas 2008, I began. I met Paddy by chance in a piano shop whilst buying some beginners music and after a short chat he offered to teach me. I started taking lessons from him in April 2009 and as at February 2012 I am now working on my grade 5 ABRSM. I can’t recommend Paddy highly enough, he is passionate about the piano, he is thorough in his lessons and is very able to break difficult musical sequences down to manageable practicable sections that I can gradually build on to complete the pieces. He always teaches at my pace, which is sometimes fast and sometimes seemly very slow! He manages to persuade me to practice my scales weekly which when it comes to the exam I am always very grateful!!! I am now passionate about the piano and cannot believe I can play!! I really enjoy my lessons, practice and playing the piano and that is in no small part due to Paddy’s excellent teaching skills.
