What does somebody need to learn?
Beginner/Advanced...Jazz - Rock - 'Stuff'
Or Rach 1 Piano Concerto?
How much an hour can someone go?

(btw for Classical London types Leif Odes Andsnes is playing Rach 1 at Barbican on 29th May AIMHO plays it like a DEMON - highly recommended, tickets are only about 20 quid which is a steal considering how good he is, yes I'm going)

How to practice and play.

I know some basics. The beginner rock jazz thing.

I used to teach when I was a student.
It can be fun when in rare cases, people aren't forced into it by their mothers

I would imagine you:
A:Work well under your own steam (otherwise you wouldn't be a gearslut)
B:Probably don't need lessons every week 'cos of A
C:Can be given lots of stuff to do because you're adult and you want to learn

I could set you on the right path for the price of beer. If you need more after that I'd have a better idea of where you're going with it and could pass you on. Do you want to be able to read music more/better 'n all that, or just get your hands around the keys qucker? Or play Fur Elise at birthday parties and Bah Mitzfahs?

Best thing about doing grades (yes I know it sounds boring) is that you get something to work towards. I have tried to teach a lot of people who get out a Beatles chord book and don't want to learn scales. They usually don't learn nothing. No pain no gain!

Whereabouts are you in this stinky never-have-frikkin-summer rat hole city of ours?

I've been doing my learning from Grade books I'm on 2, but I know there are gaps in my understanding. And I'd like to learn some more musically relevant stuff, nursery rhymes and march tunes can be fun but I'd like more variety.

I'd like to get better at music reading/theory and move around the keys better. Birthday party displays would be a bonus.

I live down Elephant and Castle way, I'm happy to travel if it's in London.

I'll PM you my number or Jules has it.

Thanks!!!,
