I’ll be with you every step of the way, available via WhatsApp for 1:1 support from the beginning, from recommendations and advice on kit to purchase, to support if you get stuck, to celebrations as you smash your targets.

About Mark

I’ve got a PhD in Heavy Metal music (yes, really!) and 25+ years working as a musical director, pianist, arranger and teacher.

It may be an odd combination to some, but it’s actually what makes me so good at what I do. 

I love all music, especially Rock and Metal, and collect t-shirts and vinyl, and I know that not everyone who wants to learn piano wants to play Beethoven next to a lovely little old lady. 

Don’t get me wrong- little old ladies are wonderful- but times are changing, and people want a modern way of learning piano!

My biggest passion is helping adults use music, particularly piano, as a way to reduce stress, improve mental health and bring a little fun to your life- while making your dreams a reality!

Life is too short to be plagued by ‘’what ifs’’ and regrets- if becoming a parent taught me anything, it’s that. My desire to pass the musical torch to my daughter serves as a constant motivation for me.

So no, your fingers are not too long, short or fat, and no, you are not too old!

I can help you.

With Amplifier you have your choice of 2 payment options:

Things you are probably asking yourself – and their answers.

How much time will I need to practice?

I’m a massive fan of 10-15 minute blocks. No declaring you’re gonna play for hours at a time. It’s the Monday morning diet equivalent. It leads to failure.

You should aim to get in at least one playing time per day, at least 4-5 days a week. Obviously the more time you can be sat at the keys the better, but we don't need this to take over your life - unless you want it to! 😊

But the best thing you can do is never let the word "practice" pass your lips again! This is playing, reducing stress and anxiety, and is just for YOU. This is not a chore or something else to add to the demands on your time. This is your reward for everything else. Call it play not practice.

Do I need an expensive piano or keyboard?

Absolutely not! I made a basic guide to buying a piano or keyboard that you can see HERE but if you're considering buying something and want some advice, you can email me HERE.

Just make sure that if you're buying a keyboard that the keys are "touch sensitive" (the harder you hit them the louder they get!). Any references to "weighted keys", "semi-weighted keys" or "hammer action" in the instrument specs will also be great.

Am I too old to start playing?

No. No you're not. 😃 I asked my members if they'd played piano when they were young, how long had it been between them stopping and them starting working with me. There were answers of everything from 20 to 61 years! I promise you're never too old to enjoy experiencing playing piano.

Can I do this on keyboard as well as piano?

Absolutely - The notes are the same and they're in the same place!

I can't read music...

Maybe not right now. But your sessions will not only have cameras on my hands if you want to copy those, but also an app that shows the keys lighting up if you want to copy those, AND if appropriate any written music to learn as you go.

Are my hands too big / small?

No. No they're not. 😃

What if I can't do it? I'm afraid of failing.

I get it, I understand. But remember, you're not trying to become a professional, you're wanting to be able to achieve a bucket list tick you never thought would be possible. Plus as one of my other clients put it, by being able to watch the videos as many times as you want, you "never have to fear asking a silly question! Learning this way is stress-free and judgement free!

So you'll actually be there to support me, answer my questions and give me feedback?

Absolutely! You will have my priority support throughout the 12 months. Email, WhatsApp, Facebook messenger - whatever is your preference. I will be encouraging you to send me videos of your progress so I can head off any potential problems before they become a problem! I'll be with you every step of the way.

"Thanks for the lesson, Mark, it was great!”
