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!

Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks (previously CRB checks)
The Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) have merged to become the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). CRB checks are now called DBS checks.

A DBS check may be needed for: certain jobs or voluntary work - eg working with children or in healthcare applying to foster or adopt a child There are different rules for getting a criminal record check in Scotland and Northern Ireland. Who can ask for a DBS check An employer can ask for a DBS check for certain roles. DBS eligibility guidance lists most roles that are eligible for a check. However, the guidance isnít comprehensive so contact DBS if unsure. Applicants (job candidates) canít do a criminal records check on themselves, but they can request a ëbasic disclosureí.

How to get a DBS check
  • The employer gets an application form from DBS or an umbrella body (a registered body that gives access to DBS checks).
  • The employer gives the applicant the form to fill in and return to them along with documents proving their identity.
  • The employer sends the completed application form to DBS or their umbrella body.
  • DBS sends a certificate to the applicant. The employer will have to ask the applicant to see the certificate.
If the applicant has subscribed to the DBS update service, the employer can check their certificate online.Basic disclosure If applicants need to run a check on themselves, they can get a ëbasic disclosureí with details of any unspent convictions from Disclosure Scotland (they can do this anywhere in the UK).Types of criminal records check There are 3 types of check. The employer or organisation running the check should provide the applicant with more information about the level of check required. Criminal record check applicants must be 16 or over.


This will check for spent and unspent convictions, cautions, reprimands and final warnings, and will take about 2 weeks.


This includes the same as the standard check plus any additional information held by local police thatís reasonably considered relevant to the workforce being applied for (adult, child or ëotherí workforce). It takes about 4 weeks.

Applicants and employers can use the DBS update service to keep a certificate up to date or carry out checks on a potential employeeís certificate.
