Since 1999, Jeremy has maintained a thriving private teaching practice. He currently teaches from Glen Iris, Melbourne, Australia Jeremy has two areas of particular expertise: teaching jazz to experienced players; and application of Alexander Technique to piano playing. Jazz Piano Lessons Jeremy works with a range of students, solo and ensemble, recreational or professional specialising in teaching jazz to students with prior piano training (jazz or otherwise). He has developed targeted techniques for students wishing to make the transition from classical or fully notated music genres into jazz and improvised forms. The programs that he has refined offer a fun and engaging alternative to mainstream piano pedagogy. For each student a structured process is tailored to the specific learning styles and needs. Paramount in a study of music is the student’s enjoyment of the process. When the process of learning is fun, students are motivated to practice and make the most of their time at the instrument. Students are encouraged to play the music they enjoy listing to, in addition to new music chosen by the teacher. Working from recordings, studying improvisation and creating composition all develop aural ability. Attention to these skills helps build spontaneous, relevant and original renditions of tunes. Not feeling particularly “natural” as a student himself obliged Jeremy to form step-by-step procedures to address these (and other) aspects of music study. Music reading, theory and piano technique are all areas which enhance the abilities a musician needs to match his or her skill with a desired musical intention. Each is addressed in a context that makes them relevant to the student – not in isolation or as ends in themselves. With the student’s consent, some physical contact is used to aid learning of technique. “[The student] may have gained some insight into music, or may just have continued to work on where he is at that point, which will eventually lead him to his goals. I am satisfied with a lesson when the student leaves knowing what to do, believes they can do it, and can't wait to!” – Jeremy Woolhouse
