Hello, my name is Jonathan Draper. Based in Crosspool, Sheffield, S10 5RB, I have been teaching music privately from my home for fifteen years.
After attending Ackworth School on a classical music scholarship, I continued my artistic development at Edinburgh University and at Trinity College of Music in London.
Since then, I have played in a wide range of musical contexts, including classical, jazz, blues and folk. I am also experienced in accompanying choirs and instrumentalists for their music exams.
“Jonathan knows his stuff and is a very personable teacher. Highly recommended.”– Paul Newman
I teach piano to all ages and abilities. I tailor lessons to suit the music my pupils want to learn. Whether that is classical grades up to Grade 8, the jazz piano style of Fats Waller or the chords from your favourite pop song, the most important things to me are that pupils learn the music they are passionate about and leave lessons loving every note they play. For those wishing to pursue the Grades, I use the ABRSM exam syllabus.
I have experience teaching pupils from school age up to retirement age, and I particularly enjoy starting beginners on the road to making music.
