Piano and jazz tuition

Dorothy Shaw is an experienced and qualified piano teacher, teaching all styles from beginner to intermedate level, specialising in jazz (to advanced level).


You can find 5-star reviews on First Tutors Direct, Tutorful and other similar websites.


Fees are currently £33 per hour (£16.50 per half hour for beginners / young children).


I can teach at my home (see business address) on a Steinway baby grand, or at your house if you live in Abingdon and have a suitable room with a piano or good keyboard.


I give a free trial lesson initially, so why not give it a go?
