Nathan Harris

I am a fully qualified piano teacher with 27 years teaching experience based in both Sutton and Wimbledon, but have pupils across south London and Surrey. I specialise in teaching adult pupils 18+ piano and offer lessons designed for the adult learner. 
Total beginners are all very welcome, as well as those who wish to restart the piano again after a few years. I teach all levels from beginner to very advanced (Grades 1-8 and ABRSM diplomas). Fine also if you just want to play the piano for your own pleasure, and not take exams.

All styles are taught- e.g. Classical, Jazz, Rock, Pop standards. I also teach music theory, composition, jazz improvisation, and electronic keyboard.

I play the piano regularly at a well known National Trust stately home in Surrey, and professionally for weddings and corporate functions. I am also a professional classical composer.

I have a music degree from London College of Music and studied Masters level composition at Goldsmiths, University of London. 

Lessons are tailored to the individual needs of the student. Exams are totally optional (I can enter pupils for all ABRSM/Trinity exams if you choose to do so).

FEES: My charges are £32 per hour (if at my home). If visiting your home, my charge is £34-£40, depending on distance.  
I can also offer block booking discount if you pay for 4, 5 or 10 lessons in advance. Lessons can be taught during daytimes, evenings, and at weekends. 

VISITS TO YOU:  I can visit pupils across all of South London and Surrey.
AT MY HOME/STUDIOS:  You can visit me at either of my two home/studios in Sutton SM2 (very close to Sutton station). Or in West Wimbledon SW20.

I can accompany singers for auditions (e.g. west end musicals) etc.

NOTE: You are most welcome to meet me prior to start of tuition.

Did You Know Piano Facts

1730
The firm of Kirkman piano makers was founded in 1730, according to the Pierce Piano Atlas. However, Kirkman inherited the business from Tabel's wife, whom he married one month after Tabel's death. Tabel was a harpsichord maker who trained with Ruckers. He came to London in 1680 and set up making harpsichords. Abraham Kirkman, who was born in 1710 inBischweiler near Strasbourg, came to work for Tabel. In 1742 hemoved to Great Pulteney Street. These are some later dates and locations for him:
(1817) (Grand Pianoforte Maker to Her Majesty and H.R.H. The PrinceRegent)
(1818-1832) (Grand Pianoforte Maker to His Majesty) 19 Broad Street,Golden Square
(1822-1896) Kirkman, Joseph (Junior) 67 Frith Street, Soho
(1831) 3 Soho Square
(1846) 9 Dean Street
(1848) DuLour's Place, Golden Square
(1864) 21 Broad Street, Golden Square
(1894) 12A George Street, Hanover Square
They had associates with Collard who were based at 50 Bond Street,London, the same as Chappell. There is a fine example of a Kirkmanharpsichord at the Colt Clavier private collection. In 1896Georgiana Kirkman sold the business to Collard's at cost.
