About Piano Lessons Bradford

I started my professional career working abroad as a dancer and discovered that I enjoyed characterising and acting as I danced. On my return to England, I attended SLP college with a view of training in all three disciplines: Dance, Drama and Singing. My main ambition was to sing and act in a musical so was thrilled when I received a call back for a new Glenn Miller show… only for funding to cease days later. Fred Astaire sang 'Pick yourself up, Dust yourself down and Start all over again' so I did just that.

I left college and began to train privately in Speech and Drama, Acting, Singing and Theory of Music and started working as a jobbing actress, that included work for a Theatre Company, performing, co-writing and directing as well as work for TV, and started up drama workshops for children and adults.

I was inspired to devise a programme for the elderly through my love of musicals and discovered the early jazz standards composed by Gershwin and Cole Porter. Thus began my interest in Jazz Singing and a return to education. I completed a BTec in Jazz Studies at Leeds College of Music and started learning the piano.

I then went onto study for a BMus (Hons) at the University of Huddersfield and was fortunate to study both performance and composition. I have a Masters degree in Music for the Moving Image at Leeds Beckett University where I have been encouraged to push boundaries to create music that is new and exciting. I teach 1-1 and small groups including Singing, Beginner Piano and Theory.

Classical & Contemporary

Whether you are interested in developing yourself as a classical piano player or learn contemporary pop and jazz songs I can help to form a course of lessons that is perfect for you. Indeed, I have a lot of experience covering both classical and modern styles of playing.

I can also help you to undertake graded exams up to grade 3 should you be interested, though this is entirely non-compulsory & many of my students simply learn for their own enjoyment.

Joanna provides a very positive and nurturing environment which has helped me develop a very good foundation & appreciation of music. She is very patient, knowledgeable, and kind. She is able to tailor the lesson with what I would like to focus. I would highly recommend her for piano learning for all ages and skill levels - V. Taylor
