Dr. Steve Potter, FHEA

I provide piano, theory and composition lessons at all levels, for children (5 & up) and adults. For beginner piano students I emphasize learning by ear over reading music. My piano lessons are an opportunity to learn poise and focus in an enjoyable way, in addition to learning pieces and techniques.

I am an American composer-pianist based in South London. Originally from northern California, I came to London 12 years ago to do a PhD, which I earned in April 2011, and happily have stayed - I now divide my time between teaching, performing, and composing for video art and experimental theater.

I have 21 years of experience as accompanist/coach and piano teacher, and I have tutored music theory, composition, and music & culture, at Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Cornell University, Amherst College (USA), University of Sussex, King's College London, and Goldsmiths University of London, as well as privately. I recently earned a postgraduate certificate in performance teaching from Guildhall School of Music and Drama (2018).
