What our students are saying:
“Celine is an inspirational and insightful teacher who makes learning the piano a pleasure. She has given me confidence to learn to play the music I enjoy the most.”Professor Frances Balkwill – Centre Lead, Centre for Cancer and Inflammation – Barts Cancer Institute – London
“I started lessons with the London Piano Institute in May this year. I had a lessons as a young child (I’m 53 now) but had no recollection of what I learnt, so despite been very keen to learn I was worried I would not be able to pick it up again. In reality it hasn’t been easy second time around. I have a good ear for music but I’m a bit ‘fingers and thumbs’, at times.Luckily Celine is very patient and understands how challenging it can be for a relative beginner. She goes at just the right pace for me and structures the lessons in a way that makes allows me to learn and have fun at the same time. I want to do the grades and Celine is supportive of this and enthuses and inspires me to practice hard in between lessons.In short Celine is an excellent teacher who I can strongly recommend.”

“Having reached Grade 6 level as a child and then stopped playing for a number of years, it was incredibly nerve wracking starting again. What impressed me the most about the London Piano Institute was that it is focused on adult learning and the lessons are tailored to your lifestyle and to the time that you can give to practicing each day.Celine is a brilliant teacher, sharing her experience as a concert pianist and providing fantastic practical tips to overcome difficult technical aspects of any piece. She also gives me confidence and praise on when I have improved and how we can make it better. I always come out of my lesson on a high and ready to tackle the challenges during the forthcoming week.The Institute also holds a concert every quarter which is a great way to meet other students and demonstrate your progress. In 5 months, I have now performed at two concerts, an amazing accomplishment something that I would never have believed possible.
The whole experience is an inspiration and a joy, I feel very lucky to have found the institute at a time when I was ready to start playing again.”
Diane Alagar – Business Director – Advertising
“I highly recommend London Music Institute’s piano course. Celine is a patient and great teacher who helped me not only progress but exceed my own expectations over my 4 months course. Will definitely be signing up again in the near future to continue my education”Nadeem – Global Finance & Foreign Exchange – City of London
“The London Piano Institute has enabled me to grow as a person and experience the true art form of music. Celine is one of my favourite teachers not only has Celine taught me to read and play the Piano but to freely develop with the music. I appreciate every moment I spend there and would not trade for anything else…I had wanted to learn how to play the piano for some time however commitments had always been an issue, although with the flexibly of lesson times with the London Piano Institute I was able to pursue my goal. I have come a long way and I have a greater understanding and hold a high value on music since learning how to play the piano. I would always highly recommend Celine as a teacher and music mentor.”Katie Evans
“After years of plonking away on the piano on my own & never actually finishing an entire piece of music, I decided to seek some professional guidance. The help I am getting from Celine is proving to be just the guidance I needed. It seems like at every lesson I learn some new skill or technique that moves my playing forward. I leave every week with a desire to challenge myself more & an enthusiasm to keep playing. The hallmarks of a good teacher! “Stephen Vieira – Camden – Central London
“My experience with The London Music Institute has been a great one. Right from the beginning Celine took the time to understand where I was in my music skills and then designed a plan to help me improve. She has the ability to breakdown a piece that to me seems complicated and make it easy to understand. I have improved so much since starting lessons in January and would recommend The London Music Institute to anyone who is wanting to learn.”Natalie Codd – Bond Street – Mayfair W1
“Before I started taking classes I was struggling with a few concerns that are probably pretty common: Will I really enjoy it or will it be like the music classes I had as a child? Will I find the time to play after work? Can I really learn to play the piano despite having no musical talent to speak of? Will I have to play dull children’s songs for years?Today, I am so glad that I found Celine and that I made the initial step to take up classes. I am also proud of the progress we have achieved so far. Celine makes learning the piano a truly enjoyable experience – I am always looking forward to my next class. Also, I found playing the piano a great way to switch off after a busy day at work. The classes are the right mix of fun, inspiration, and pushing the student to overcome any temporary plateaus. The fear that I might have to stick to children’s songs also turned out to be wrong as we always find pieces to play that fit both my skill level and my personal taste. Hence, I can recommend to anyone to take up classes with Celine – you might be surprised how much you will enjoy it!”Peter Wansing
“At the age of 29, with no previous musical experience, I decided to learn to play the piano. I am finding this new experience thorougly enjoyable – largely a result of the weekly lessons I have with Celine, an exceptional and inspirational tutor.Celine has provided me with the motivatation to focus my attention on learning and in a short space of time I have learnt to read music and play some well-known songs. Celine really cares that you are enjoying learning and she will build on your strengths (and confidence) whilst also polishing up your weaknesses.Celine is both patient and supportive yet will also push you to develop your ability and learn new techniques. An excellent tutor who I cannot recommend highly enough!”Frances Later – UBS EC2M
“When I decided to study piano at the London Piano Institute I had no idea what to expect. As a beginner I didn’t know if I would be able to play the piano. My attitude changed the very first day at the Institute. I had no idea that the lessons would be so challenging and enriching.The main reasons why I chose the London Institute were because is one of very few places in London with programs for adult beginners; the availability of evening lessons and convenient location.It is a very enjoyable, innovative and stimulating course. Celine’s expertise, articulate teaching style and passion for music make her lessons an absolute joy. She is a challenging tutor who combines both firmness and softness in her teaching style.The London Institute has offered me a great opportunity to keep me motivated about playing the piano and I would have no hesitation in recommending Celine to anyone.” Sueli
