Piano Lessons Belfast

Hello! My name is Simon and I run Piano Lessons Belfast - a dedicated piano school located in Belfast, Northern Ireland welcoming students of all ages and abilities. I have many years teaching experienced, having gained a Music BA from the University of York. After completing my music degree I went on to become director of music at St. Thomas's church in York, where I ran the church's gospel choir.

Alongside my work as a musician both in York and now here in Belfast, I helped students to learn to play the piano, from beginner levels upwards. I am keen to ensure that my students learn to play the piano by playing the music that they listen to and inspired them to start playing the piano in the first place. I work hard to incorporate their prefered styles of music into our lessons and I offer lessons that cover jazz, classical and contemporary genres of music.

I would be delighted to help you to learn to play the piano whether you are a beginner student or are returning to playing the piano. For more information simply get in touch!

Did You Know Piano Facts

Tuning Temperaments

How many piano tuning temperaments are there? There are countless variations, but most fall within three major categories;

1. Meantone, which generally concentrated the dissonance into a few unusable intervals (often called "wolf" intervals), so that the others could be Just. These are often called "restrictive" tunings, since there are certain intervals that are not usable. Good intervals are really good, bad ones are really bad. The Meantone era was approx. 1400-1700

2. Well-Temperament, which gives more consonance to the most often used keys, and more dissonance to the lesser used ones. Though not equal, these tunings are "non-restrictive" because all intervals can be used. The intervals range from Just to barely acceptable. Well-temperament refers to a genre, not a specific tuning. The Well-Tempered era is approx. 1700-1880.

3. Equal Temperament, which spreads the dissonance equally among all intervals. There is no difference in consonance or dissonance between any keys, thus, there are no good ones or bad ones. Equal temperament represents a complete average. Dates of its acceptance are debated, but there is ample evidence that it was widely available by 1900 and is the predominate tuning on keyboards, today. r.
