Craig EWENS - Teacher Profile

About Me

I offer lessons on a one to one basis to all ages and levels from my studio in Belsize Park. I can teach all styles including jazz and pop, but am best at classical. I also offer music theory, general musicianship, keyboard harmony and can prepare pupils for exams at all levels where desired and appropriate (including diplomas, auditions, public performances/recitals) and particularly enjoy teaching adults (including beginners and re-starters) of all standards. I have been teaching privately for over fifteen years and am a committed, enthusiastic teacher; my aim is that all pupils enjoy their lessons, their playing, and make steady progress. I'm a member of the Incorporated Society of Musicians, European Piano Teachers Association, and a Fellow of the Guild of Musicians and Singers. I studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama on the four year Performer's course from 1984 - 1988 and have the AGSM, then (with scholarships from the Craxton trust and Worshipful Company of  Musicians) for a further two years on the Advanced Solo Studies course and was awarded the Concert Recital Diploma GSMD in July 1990. I have given many solo recitals at St Martin in the Fields, St James's Piccadilly, the Barbican Centre, St John's Smith Square, the Purcell Room, and for various music societies throughout the UK.
