Learn piano from London’s favourite player

After 32 years spent playing in a lot more than 32 bars in and around London, Joe is happy to be able to share what he has learnt out there on the front line and pass it on to would-be pianists. He’s taught Anne Hathaway how to play like Jane Austen. He can help you to play too.

Joe Thompson - teaching at the Conservatoire“Playing piano, whatever the level, whatever the style is about contrast and relationships. As well as the highs and lows, the ups and downs, and finding your rhythm, it is first and foremost about interpretation. Not just how you play it, but how you feel about it. It’s about hearing what you want to play, and playing what you want to hear. It’s about having fun, sharing your music with others and not being afraid of making mistakes.

“So let me help you play what you want to play, how you want to play it, and hopefully I can give you a taste of what the piano has given me.”
