Piano, Keyboard & Music Tech tutor straight out of the industry!
You can book a free 20 minute, no-commitment introduction with any of our tutors. How does this work?
Welcome to my profile! I'm a professional pianist and keyboardist, and music director. I teach regularly online, to pass on as much knowledge as I can straight from the music industry where I work as a creative and a performer.
I hold a Bachelor of Music degree (BMus) Creative Music Technology from the University Of Surrey, have studied jazz piano at Birmingham Conservatoire, and music direction under mentorship at The MTA, London. I hold a full Enhanced DSB check (number available on request). I specialise in the following areas of tutoring:
Classical Piano, Jazz Piano, Pop / Rock Piano, Keyboards, Music Theory, Music Technology, curriculum music, Composition, Musical Theatre (vocal coaching & audition technique)
I work playing with and/or directing bands, theatre shows (touring theatre in the UK and Australia), pantomimes, cruises, artists, and other large scale concerts including touring with Clem Burke (drummer for Blondie) and deputising with Vanessa Mae (internationally renowned classical-crossover violinist). A full list of credits can be found at www.samcoatesmusic.co.uk
I also teach on the musical theatre degree and diploma programs for Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts in central London, and Italia Conti Arts Centre in Guildford, UK.
Where do I go from here?

How do the introductions work?
Sherpa gives you the opportunity to meet our tutors in a free 20 minute introduction, which takes place through the Sherpa classroom.
How do lessons work?
All lessons take place through Sherpa's online, industry-leading classroom. This is a combination of a collaborative, real time whiteboard and a video call, like Zoom.
