SE22 Piano School

The SE22 Piano School is based in East Dulwich in commercial premises on Pellatt Road. We teach many styles of music including jazz, improvisation and classical. We also teach music theory.

Many of our students follow the graded exam system and regularly achieve marks at the highest level. You can see our results published on our web site.

We have a busy extra-curricular program of musical activities including twice-yearly concerts at venues such as Alleyn's, Dulwich College and Kingsdale Foundation School and school trips to perform on stage with the Southbank Sinfonia Orchestra at Cadogan Hall.

We have four piano teachers working in the studio, each specialising in a different area of teaching. We accept children from age 4. We welcome adult learners and restarters.

See our web site for further information:

We also organise lots of events specifically for adult amateur pianists at Steinway Hall:

We are founders of the Dulwich Piano Festival, a piano competition for local pianists that is now in it's third year.

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.
