Craig Smith Music Tuition : Piano Lessons & Keyboard Lessons

We offer lessons in piano, keyboard, drums, percussion, guitar, bass, flute, saxophone, clarinet, recorder, cornet, trumpet, trombone and singing

Welcome to Craig Smith Music's page for Preston piano lessons and keyboard lessons, also available in Kirkham and Blackburn, Lancashire.

For several years, Craig Smith Music has been the North West's most popular provider of both home and hosted piano lessons and keyboard lessons. We have had several teachers on our books over the years, who host lessons from their own studios and visit students' homes. We are also available to offer school piano lessons and keyboard lessons in a peripatetic tuition capacity across the North West.

Back to School vacancies Entering September, Craig has rare vacancies, on Monday and Wednesday early evening for new keyboard and/or piano lessons in Fulwood, Broughton and Cottam or anyone happy to travel to his Ingol studio. There is space for three to four new piano lessons in Preston.

When and where do lessons take place? [Top]

We offer Preston piano lessons and Preston keyboard lessons primarily, with our Preston music lessons being available both from our studio close to Fulwood and Cottam, and at students' homes. Home piano lessons are currently also available in Kirkham on Mondays and Longridge and Blackburn on Thursdays.

Who will teach my lesson? [Top]

Craig, managing director of Craig Smith Music, now only has availability for a small number of keyboard and piano lessons in Preston on Monday and Wednesday evenings.

Craig now spends most of his working life working in popular music (gigs have included recording for Bryan Adams, and sharing stages with such names as Bastille, Paloma Faith and soon Pixie Lott). As such, his teaching hours have reduced somewhat over recent years. However, Craig's professional experience, and the level at which he works, makes his tuition unique in Lancashire.

We are also able to recommend other teachers in the area for those unable to have lessons on Monday or Wednesday.

What ages and levels are taught? [Top]

Due to the demand for his services, Craig specialises mainly in the tuition of advanced piano lessons and keyboard lessons, where his experience as a professional musician is best put to use. Experienced students up to and including diploma level can benefit from his active industry experience as a professional session musician and live performer.

Craig's current availaiblity also lends itself better to tuition of adults looking for adult piano lessons and keyboard lessons, as majority of his availability is during daytime hours. However, beginner piano lessons for children over the age of 8 where a suitable slot is available can be provided.

What styles are taught? [Top]

Craig was originally classically trained, but now works mainly in popular music session musicianship and composition. Classical piano lessons, jazz piano lessons, blues piano lessons and pop music piano lessons (rock, pop, soul etc) are all available to an advanced level. 'Traditional' left-hand-chord-based keyboard lessons are also available in any style, although from roughly grade 5, it is strongly recommended that students move across to more pianistic techniques to aid their development as a musician, to prevent them becoming board with the lack of interesting learning material at higher levels, and due to the expense of the high-end keyboards required for advanced level keyboard playing.

According to facebook, Craig Smith Music is the most liked provider of home music tuition in the North West!
