Dr Charles Tebbs is a pianist, accompanist and Nottingham piano teacher, with a wealth of experience teaching all ages and abilities. He gives regular concerts and recitals and has made a CD of Bach’s Goldberg Variations as well as an amazing collection of youtube videos. His doctorate is in musicology (concerning musical endings) and he has also written prize-winning compositions and music for TV.
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.
Students attain high marks in ABRSM and Trinity examinations. One student received the Nellie Greenhill Memorial Prize for the highest mark in grade 5 piano (in Nottingham) at the age of just nine!
Charles can also help you or your child pass grade 5 music theory – he has a track record of 100% success with grade 5 theory students.
Charles is an official accompanist at the University of Nottingham’s Music Department, and a repetiteur for Sinfonia Chorale. Please make contact if you need an accompanist for an examination, including diplomas, recitals, competitions and auditions.
