Johan DE COCK - Teacher Profile

About Me
Whether you're an absolute beginner, starting from scratch, an advanced player preparing for exams, or simply just wanting to play and learn for the love of it! 
I teach people of all ages (5 - 100), any style (Classical, Jazz or Pop), and all levels (beginners to an advanced diploma level). I have over 14 years of experience, teaching the piano, music theory and music technology in London, Ascot and Saltdean, and I have also had a 100% pass rate with all my students' ABRSM exams so far! 
I teach from my music studio at home in Mount Drive, Saltdean. Parking is available and we're just a short walk from the bus stop (Bus 27, which leaves from Brighton Station via Kemp Town, the Brighton Marina, and Rottingdean).
Lesson Fees 2017 / 2018
  • 30 minute lesson (ages 5 - 9 only): £25.00
  • 60 minute lesson: £35.00
Lessons are taught on my Yamaha C3 acoustic grand piano, but for those of you that have digital pianos, I can also teach using various keyboards.  I place special emphasis on physical relaxation while playing (maximum results for minimum physical effort/strain), bringing music theory, harmony, ear-training, improvisation, music technology and general musical knowledge into each lesson. There are also facilities for students to make basic audio and video recordings.
PLEASE NOTE: I usually give lessons on a weekly basis, and I have a 48hrs' notice cancellation policy. You will also need your own instrument to practise on at home - this is essential for your progress!
I have been DBS-checked, and after an initial consultation lesson, I always set up a basic contract with my student or their parents, outlining my terms and conditions. 
Many references are available from parents and past students of all ages. Please contact me via my personal website at or you can email me at and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. You can find my BML Facebook teaching page at:
