Welcome to Berkhamsted Piano Lessons

My name is Mike Benjamin  – I started playing the piano aged six. I won an scholarship for my Piano playing at 13 years old and passed my grade 8 while at school. I then went on to study Music at Ealing College West London.

Aside from my Classical training, from a very early age i learned how to play, write and improvise with and without musical notation, learning how to improvise and write early on in life.

I then followed a path of being in bands, playing Jazz Piano in well known top class restaurants and hotels in London, especially the Conran Restaurants, Quaglino’s, Bluebird, Mezzo as well as the Groucho club, The Ivy, a few Hilton Hotels and many Private parties.

I have over 20 years of Piano teaching experience, in all styles of music, to students with all types of requirements, abilities and personalities.

I have released 2 CD’s that are available on Amazon and iTunes and have performed countless professional sessions. I am currently signed to a well known publishing company who produce library music for TV and film.

I teach and have taught student’s young and older, from beginners to advanced.

However my greatest qualification is my love and passion for Music!

I play every day, all kinds of music, and I am lucky enough to work as a teacher sharing my knowledge and passion. I aim to share my passion with a view to my students being ‘Lifetime Musicians’.

Being a Piano teacher , requires me to not only have a complete understanding of music’s theory and practice, but also to appreciate that i need to adapt my communication in teaching according to the student as an individual, to be patient and understanding.

I teach throughout Berkhamsted and in Kentish town, Camden. I also am available to travel to Hemel Hempsted, Tring.

Please contact me for more information. I would be very happy to discuss in detail your personal goals and hopes.
