What is the advantage of taking jazz piano lessons?

How much practice will I need to do?
You will be expected to have tried and practised the things which have been discussed, several times in-beween lessons, in order to progress. If you have the time to practise more, you will obviously see faster progress.

Quote’s from Tommy’s students
An incredibly skilled pianist, with a deep and developed understanding of music across a large range of genres. Has helped me develop largely by giving me direction and guidance in my practice, and by constantly teaching me new and interesting material and knowledge. A great teacher and person who I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to learn piano and expand there knowledge of music.
Tommy is an extremely professional and knowledgeable teacher of piano. He is pleasant, friendly and very patient when you're struggling to get things right. He is an expert judge at when to stand back and let you achieve by yourself, and when an example or playing alongside you will help you to get your head around an issue. I came to Tommy having spent some time learning on apps and the feedback, support and critical analysis he provides has made for a far better learning experience.
Tommy is an absolute angel. Working with him is so easy, he makes learning fun, he is patient and kind. The best thing of all if I don’t understand something he will just explain it again or in a different way, and he does not make me feel bad for not getting it first or second time. Would recommend for anyone
