About Me

After playing the piano privately for 20 years, I became self-employed as a pianist in January 2009. I offer private piano tuition in performance and music theory as well as exam entry to local exam boards, mainly ABRSM & LCM, although others are available.

I have performed during official school events, presentations & for private concerts. I have also accompanied performers during competitions as well as choirs during practice periods, in some cases providing recordings for them to practice with.

Feel free to contact me at enquiries@nathanjhenry.co.uk with any questions you may have.

What are your Qualifications?

While I have not been awarded Qualified Teaching Status (QTS) to teach in schools, I have been awarded a diploma in pianoforte performance. DipLCM is the first diploma after Grade 8 awarded by the London College of Music. In total there are 4 further levels of achievement:

DipLCM Diploma of the London College of Music
ALCM Associate of the London College of Music
LLCM Licentiate of the London College of Music
FLCM Fellowship of the London College of Music

Other exam boards have similar diplomas i.e. ABRSM currently offers the ARSM, DipABRSM, LRSM & FRSM. The standards & repertiore generally confer.

These qualifications may be written following your name i.e.
Nathan J Henry DipLCM.

Learning at NathanJHenry

For my younger students, lessons don't have to be like an extension of your school day. While the atmosphere is respectful it is much more relaxed! You've chosen to learn how to play the piano, so I aim to make it as fun as possible.

It would be good for parents to know that I have a working Studio Operating Policy (SOP). I had previously been checked by the Criminal Record Bureau (CRB), however I have also obtained a current Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check due to DBS replacing CRB in the UK.
