Derby piano lessons...
My name is Dom Scohy.
I have 20 years of teaching experience, & have been performing for 15 years. I'm from Belgium & the son of an international opera singer. I started my first piano lessons at the age of 3 years old, & achieved a music theory & piano diploma at the Academy of Auderghem at 16. I then studied at the Royal Conservatoire of Brussels.
I have more than 20 years of international teaching experience between Belgium, France, and the UK.
In Derbyshire, I have previously taught lesson(s) at Foulds/Forte music school, & Derby school of music. I have also composed music for shows in Brussels.
I am very passionate & enthusiastic. I am very comfortable with classical, jazz & pop. I teach theory individually or in very didactic & fun group lessons. In my spare time, I am the keys player of the Derby-based jazz/funk band Oobleck.
Piano tuition is like learning a poem in Japanese because it sounds beautiful & is great, but understanding what you are saying is even better - I will help you understand music entirely. I have students from Allestree, Mickleover,
Littleover, Belper, see my testimonials here. I have been DBS checked. Contact me for your first piano lesson, near Mackworth in Derby - contact me now!

My Experience teaching piano
Piano Music Tuition
Piano Teacher Music School, Brussels
I used to teach music in a state school. Music is assessed twice a year. My work was to teach students to pass their exams, just like I do at my home in Derby now with my lessons.
Private teacher at Magic keyboard school in Belgium
Piano teacher in a private music school, close to the international Queen Elisabeth chapel. I had the chance to be part of masterclass of worldwide pianist such as Maria Joao Pires who is teaching at the Chapel. I learn how to adapt my teaching to my students, which I now do every day in Derby.

I was a member of the examination board, which now helps me to prepare students for their piano grades (ABRSM, Trinity...).
Ethnic Drums Teacher In An Autistic School "Les 4 Vents"
The work included, dealing with teenagers with on the autistic spectrums. We had to work on poly-rhythm which basically means that the group of approximately 15 teens were divided in different groups, and played all together with rhythms. Like a drums orchestra. My work here, now assists me to help students who are struggling with the rhythm, during my lessons in Mackworth.
