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. Furthermore, I am an older tutor with a traditional outlook of teaching and standards. I do not offer instant quick learning methods or cheap tuition fees (albeit my fees are reasonable bearing in mind my extensive qualifications and experience), nor do I specialize in pop music. I have well over 30 years teaching experience and longer as a musician. There is plenty of evidence on this website (and the SoundCloud and Vimeo links from it) to authenticate, endorse and substantiate my established and accomplished skills as a professional musician and as a tutor. Thank you for your interest in Michael Spacie Music Tuition. Please feel free to get in touch if you would like to discuss your pathway in learning music.”

“Dr Spacie approaches pieces in a way that I have not considered before. He is very thorough, yet patient. I feel my playing has improved vastly, thanks to his tuition. I would highly recommend.”
