Inspiring, specialist and distinctive piano tuition and music theory tuition by Dr Michael Spacie to provide a musical education and experience enabling learners of all abilities from absolute beginners to aspiring competent musicians to realise and fulfil their creative and musical potential by igniting their passion for music in a friendly, nurturing, vibrant, thriving and excellent teaching environment and atmosphere where learners are encouraged to develop their own musical personality through a positive musical experience where teaching is holistically aimed at the fullest understanding of music by developing musicality, solid technique, artistic interpretation, performance skills, music theory and versatile musicianship. Thus, learners attending the teaching practice are helped to develop as well-rounded musicians through imagination and creative engagement with music which can be the springboard into an inspiring musical journey which allows students to find their own musical expression and musical understanding as each individual develops at his or her own rate and direction of musical progress.

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.

“Mike is an absolutely superb piano teacher. Not only is his knowledge and technical skill practically unsurpassable, but his attention to detail is simply amazing and I come away from each and every lesson feeling a tangible and immediate improvement in my playing. The lessons are enjoyable and grant a fuller understanding of the subject than I could ever get from elsewhere. Mike has developed me from a very average beginner to post grade-8 standard and my rate of progress has been entirely down to his skill as a tutor. I recommend him most highly, and without hesitation.”
