Nigel's positive attitude and enthusiasm has really encouraged my daughter to progress with her piano grades at a good pace. He makes lessons very interesting by mixing exam work with pleasure playing and is very responsive to the learning needs of his students. He is also very professional in his approach to work.
My children have been having piano lessons with Mr Chapman for several years now and have thoroughly enjoyed them. He makes the lessons fun, yet also manages to get the children to progress well through their music grades. He has an excellent rapport with younger students and manages to get the best out of them.
Both my daughter and my son enjoy learning the piano with Nigel and I would definitely recommend him to anyone. His enthusiasm is brilliant and he manages to successfully teach children without putting pressure on them.
My son James (7 years old) was losing interest in playing the piano so I changed teachers to Nigel. Now he loves playing the piano and has just passed his grade 1 exam. What a difference a fun, brilliant teacher makes!! Thanks Nigel.
Nigel has been coaching my daughter in pianoforte for several years now where she has sofar achieved success in grades 1 through 4. His manner and approach as well as his enthusiasm for teaching music is second to none, so much so that my daughter now wants to go for grade 5 . Keep doing what you do...!
Nigel Chapman is an absolutely fantastic Music Theory teacher! After only a short period of study with him and with no previous grades under my belt, I have already comfortably passed my Grade 5 Theory exam first time with Distinction. Nigel’s enthusiasm is infectious and this together with his kind, encouraging manner and profound knowledge of both music and teaching forms a dream combination. Skype lessons with him are just as effective as taking classes in person and he also provides additional resources when necessary to reinforce his teaching. I have no hesitation in recommending lessons with Nigel – thank you so much for everything!
The best part about learning music theory with Nigel is that he finds simple ways to explain complex concepts. He helped me cover the entire syllabus in a very short span of time. A lot of funny little one liners like, "minors dig deep and majors get promoted", helped me remember some fundamentals that at times could be confusing. He encouraged me and kept me motivated, which is as important as anything else. The end goal was to get a distinction, and Nigel helped me achieve it. I wish there were more teachers like him.
Nigel is a fantastic piano teacher. My daughter eagerly looks forward to each lesson, and is now studying for her Grade 4. Nigel's enthusiasm is infectious and my daughter's appreciation for music is growing, with her now keen to take theory tests as well as practical. But it is not all about the "serious stuff"; Natasha has great fun learning lines from popular music which, intermixed with her grade music, makes learning so much more enjoyable.'
My daughter adores Nigel and has consequently progressed enormously. I believe this is due to Nigel's innate ability to read her character and to tailor each lesson to her mood. He is a brilliant teacher of whom I cannot speak highly enough, and has made learning the piano easy and fun for her.’
'Nigel's infectious enthusiasm and skill as a teacher combine to both motivate and inspire you as a student. He provides great insight and employs a range of teaching styles to create an environment where learning to play the piano really is a joy.'
'My two daughters are learning to play the piano with Nigel, and they both really enjoy it. My elder daughter started first and after a few months of learning, she did her first grading and received a merit. ‘Nigel is an enthusiastic so enthusiastic that soon, my second daughter found that playing the piano was fun; when she saw how Nigel taught her sister. Nigel is a friendly and kind piano teacher who makes my daughters enjoy playing the piano without pressure but fun.'
‘My seven year old daughter looks forward to every piano lesson with Nigel. Nigel brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to his lessons and with his infectious enthusiasm and happy personality every lesson is fun and exciting. If you want a piano teacher Nigel would be my number one choice.’
‘Nigel is enthusiastic and dedicated. He encourages progress whilst appreciating particular needs of the students. Time spent learning with him is fun and enjoyable and each lesson is something to look forward to.’
