Having the right piano teacher is everything
When it comes to learning the piano, the tutor will be by far the most important and influential figure in a student's musical development, so having the right person is paramount to becoming the best musician one can be and actually having fun in the process!
One of the things that makes learning with Lycaeum so great is the tremendous amount of care we take when we select the relevant tutor for each student.
We are good at what we do
97% of our students continue with their recommended tutors after the first session
86% of our students continue studying with their recommended tutor after their first 12 months of learning
How it works
We will set up a time to speak over the phone and learn about your musical likes and dislikes, your experience, and aspirations. The chat usually lasts 10-15 minutes, its goal being to determine exactly what kind of tutor and teaching style will work for your best.
After the call, we will email you with what we believe will be our best tutor for you, based on the chat above. You can look over their CV, history, and call up their references.
If you like what you see, we can organise a first lesson whenever it is convenient for you. If you like it and wish to continue, you can arrange further lessons directly with your tutor.
Our piano teachers
All our piano tutors are professionals or late stage students from London’s top conservatoires, such as the Royal Academy of Music and the Royal College of Music, and are all DBS checked, so you know you will be in very good hands!
In order to teach piano lessons for Lycaeum, our tutors must first pass a series of thorough personal checks and interviews, and show the relevant experience and expertise not only as professionally trained piano virtuosos, but also as tutors in various educational settings. Additional skills beyond mere competency on the piano are a must, such as patience, organisation, and very good empathetic listening
We only work with the top 10% piano tutors in London!
Piano lessons online
If price is a concern, or if it’s simply not convenient for you to welcome a tutor into your home, we also offer private online lessons for up 50% less compared to face-to-face lessons.
Our online piano tutors will create a bespoke learning experience for each student, whether children or adults, for as cheap a price as can be found in the UK for this level of tuition.
All our online piano students will of course still benefit from our great range of events, concerts, competitions, and group courses. You can always upgrade to face-to-face lessons whenever you feel ready!
Getting a piano
We can help our students find a piano or piano keyboard that suits them, helping you make the best decision when investing in your musical instrument. Our tutors have excellent technical knowledge, and will be able to make suggestions based on their expansive experience as both teachers and former students themselves.
Many prospective students and parents hold back from beginning piano lessons, believing them to be inaccessible. At Lycaeum, we believe that music should be available for everyone.
Worried about purchasing a piano at the beginning of you or your child's musical journey? We offer all our new students a free piano keyboard for their first month, with the option to pay for it on a monthly basis (between 3-6 months) with 0% interest!

Who we are
Lycaeum music is a service focused on delivering specialised music tuition at home, online, or in group settings to children and adults across London. We have been featured in the local media on numerous occasions, like the prime-time BBC Radio London feature interview in the autumn of 2020.
We have been particularly successful with the MusicOnWheels social inclusion project, where we bought a double decker bus and converted it into a musical space, taking it to various areas of London to deliver musical education free at point of use to underprivileged children in London, in partnership with Brent Council. A 6min presentation video made by Emmy award winning cinematographer Joe Pavlo is available here.
