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!

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.
