Face to face lessons in East London and online – jazz piano, improvisation (beginners to advanced). In person lessons are subject to the appropriate Covid protocols (including 2 pianos).
Simon Purcell offers a range of tuition and mentoring.
I offer tuition in jazz improvisation and jazz piano to all instruments and voice. As an extremely experienced teacher and passionate educationalist, I enjoy working with people of all ages and levels of experience.
Lessons are prepared and a range of supporting materials are provided according to your needs. Whether you want to play for fun, move to jazz from classical music or are looking for some in-depth study in order to revise or develop to a more advanced stage, I very much hope to help. With nearly 40 years teaching experience, my work is informed by performance psychology, practice management (smart practice) mindfulness (see the 4Ps) and particular the Improvisational Mind.
My work in Higher Education means that my approach to teaching and learning is informed by current educational research.
