Stuart Picton (BA Hons, M.A, PGCE) is a pianist and piano teacher based in Surrey.

About Me

Since graduating from Sussex University in 1999, I have performed and taught across the UK, Asia, and the Middle East. I am currently based in Woking and teach piano lessons across Guildford and even in to Hampshire. I love all styles of piano music, but particularly love the freedom that Jazz music allows. I perform keyboard for Goldsworth Gerry (see below) and play my own take on Jazz standards in venues around Surrey.  

Piano Tuition

October 2017 - Very limited slots available (£40ph)

I have over 15 years experience helping students of all ages, abilities and backgrounds enjoy making music at the piano. Whether your goal is to learn your favourite songs, master the ABRSM grade pieces, improvise or jam with your friends, I can help you do that with ease.

My method combines several modern approaches to piano technique – at its root are the ‘core movements’ (Fink, S) allowing us to move fluidly, purposefully and musically at the keyboard, the use of ‘hand structure’ (Fraser, A) to invigorate the hand and free up the arm, and freedom and effortless playing that results from the Lister-Sink method.

I aim to provide fun, purposeful lessons that will help you master pieces effectively whilst moving you smoothly towards an effortless technique.

If you’re interested in how I can help you then give me a call.

" your lessons and feel so much more confident.  Thank you!" - Grace Truter

I carefully consult with all my customers to ensure that the music fits perfectly with each event. I can provide background music for your guests arriving, the drinks receptions, meal or any other special part of your day.

My aim is always to provide a meaningful and memorable musical experience for you and your guests to enjoy. Call me now to discuss how I can help be a part of your perfect day.
