The music is not in the notes, but in the silence in between.

Don’t practise until you get it right. Practise until you can’t get it wrong.

The expert in anything was once a beginner.

The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery.

Based in Hampstead with studios throughout London (Chelsea, Marylebone, Edgware Road & Earl’s Court), the Sokol Piano Academy prides itself in providing the most innovative and engaging piano lessons London has to offer. Assisted by our tutors, our piano professors teach an exclusive method proven to deliver outstanding results. We have taught celebrities including Ryan Gosling (for his role in La La Land), Simon Pegg, and Lenny Henry.

After 20 years of observation, analysis, and experimentation, Georges Sokol has refined a pioneering method by combining three areas of expertise:

  1. Biomechanics, reducing as much physical tension as possible for optimum fluency
  2. Experience teaching over 500 students in his career
  3. Psychology of piano performance acquired from being a professional concert pianist with 35 million YouTube views

Choosing the right piano teacher is likely to be the most important factor in determining your success. When you are learning the piano for the first time or after a long break, you need proper guidance from a teacher who understands your individual learning process.

All London piano teachers at the Sokol Piano Academy have undergone substantial training in piano performance and pedagogy. They are highly qualified and experienced. Our students reach a high level in a relatively short period of time. This is due to our unique methodology: aiming for loose wrists and arms with controlled application of finger pressure, emphasis on understanding music theory, rather than memorising it; and motivating students in a way that makes them practise more of their own accord.

Piano lessons should be enjoyable, and forming good habits from the start is essential. We take great care to ensure our students develop the correct piano technique from the first trial piano lesson. Most learners give up after a few months of piano studies and that is often because of poor instruction.

The student-teacher relationship is crucial. Not only must the personality fit be right, but the teacher must also inspire the student and remind him or her that purposeful practice is key to progress. Both parties will need to devote the necessary time and effort. Students are encouraged to practise regularly and efficiently at home; this will up progress considerably and the ensuing results will instil confidence in the student.

The teacher is initially responsible for selecting appropriate repertoire, although there are exceptions if the student is more advanced and has a particular goal or piece in mind. Whatever musical style you enjoy, rest assured that one of our London piano teachers has the knowledge and experience to assist you.

Wherever you live or work in London piano lessons will hopefully be an occasion you look forward to. We have piano studios in Marylebone, Edgware Road, Chelsea, Earl’s Court and Hampstead. We even do home visits if you prefer to have your teacher come to your home for piano lessons. London is a city with many attractions and distractions, and finding your passion and the time to dedicate to it can be difficult. If you are interested in playing in front of an audience, we can enter you for graded piano exams and also offer you the opportunity to perform in public.

We encourage you to book a trial piano lesson and see how you get on. You may have many questions and your teacher here is always on hand to answer them. There is no monthly or termly financial commitment; we operate on a pay-as-you-go basis. You can check your teacher’s availability and book one or more lessons online. As far as we know, we are the only music school providing the convenience of web scheduling.
