Dr Michael Spacie writes:

“I believe good music teaching is dependent on artistic excellence, skill, passion and knowledge for the subject with a sincere interest in learners and their development as well-rounded musicians. My piano tuition includes all levels: Absolute Beginner; Foundation (Grades 1 and 2); Intermediate (Grades 3 to 5); Advanced (Grades 6 and 7); Further Advanced (Grade 8); Piano Performance Diploma. Learning purely for pleasure on any level without exams is also encouraged. Thank you for your interest in Michael Spacie Music Tuition. Please feel free to get in touch if you would like to arrange piano lessons and discuss your pathway in learning music.”

“Over that time I have made excellent progress in my musical training. This is due to the highly professional and first class tutoring that I have received during my studies with Mike. Mike’s philosophy and teaching methods are well suited to my learning style in that he is patient and very thorough when conveying key musical principles whilst at the same time inspiring confidence in the student. If you are looking for a highly respected and competent music teacher then I highly recommend him without reservation.”
