Eleanor White

Piano Lessons Norwich Map

As part of a large family of musicians, Eleanor started playing the piano at the age of four. In her late teens she was engaged in performances in and around London, before embarking on a degree in music at the University of East Anglia. During her time at UEA, where she was holder of the Britten-Pears scholarship, and subsequently while studying for a PGCE in secondary music at Homerton College, Cambridge, she further increased her experience on the piano, as well as the cello and voice.

Her ten years’ experience as a piano, cello and singing teacher and performer have taken Eleanor from London to the Cayman Islands, where she taught for two years, and back to her home town of St. Albans. She taught piano, cello singing and theory and directs the choirs and string ensemble at Thorpe House School in Gerrards Cross until 2015 when she relocated to Norwich to start a family. She has been teaching piano students from their home since.

Eleanor specialises in helping younger students to learn to play the piano from the ages of 5 years upwards. If you are interested in booking piano lessons for your child, whether they have experience on the piano or are a complete beginner please don't hesitate to get in touch by emailing eleanorwhite@pianolessonsnorwich.com.

Jacob Swindells

Piano Lessons Norwich Map

Hello, my name is Jacob Swindells and I am a professional piano teacher based here in Norwich helping students of all ages and abilities learn to play the piano. I hold a BA in Music from the University of Oxford and and a master's in Choral Conducting from Yale University, as well as two professional diplomas in piano.

I have eight years of experience giving private piano tuition to all ages and abilities. My approach is based on the belief that accomplished musicians must develop their craft from many different angles. A solid technical foundation is a vital priority, but I combine this with a wide survey of the repertoire and an encouragement of improvisation and aural skills so that a pupil's musical imagination can be broadened and enlivened. Full preparation for ABRSM exams is also provided if appropriate.

If students want to bring more of a pop focus to their piano playing I am very happy to develop that and have a wide experience playing in piano and pop bands.In addition, I offer extra tuition for students preparing for Music Theory exams (grades 1-8) and GSCE/A Level exams in Music.

I teach from home in the centre of Norwich, and I am happy to travel to student's homes if preferred. To book your first lesson simply get in touch by emailing jacobswindells@pianolessonsnorwich.com.

More information about myself as a piano teacher can also be found on my Music Teacher profile.
