Charles’s mission statement is ‘to help dedicated students learn and eventually master the piano by exploring whichever styles and composers appeal to them, and to inspire and challenge them with the legacy of great masterworks of the piano repertoire’.  In addition to teaching a broad spectrum of piano music Charles also teaches the ABRSM jazz syllabus to students interested in improvisation.  Beginners are just as welcome as advanced students, but a commitment to regular lessons, practice and ownership of an appropriate instrument are essentials to the development of musical skills.
