Develop Your Enduring Connection with Music

I love being a piano teacher and can’t imagine my life without music! I started piano lessons when I was nine years old and I’ve been playing the piano ever since. Music lessons were always a joy, and to this day, I still get the same feelings of pleasure, satisfaction and even exhilaration when I sit down at the piano to make music.

Jane’s tech system is now super high-tech


Laura Canton

Jane taught me piano for nearly ten years. During this time, Jane saw me through many music exams, including ABRSM Grade 7 piano and Grade 5 music theory, which I attained with high marks. I always immensely enjoyed my piano lessons — in large part due to Jane. Jane is friendly, supportive, and professional. She brings out the best in her students by encouraging them in their goals, being patient, and calmly helping them to apply corrections. Jane always made my lessons fun, gave me plenty of choice in what I wanted to play, and helped ensure that these pieces reached a polished level. I learnt and improved a lot under Jane’s guidance and gained a love and appreciation for piano and music in general.

Three of the years I learnt from Jane were during the time of the Covid pandemic. During the lockdowns Jane offered lessons via ‘Skype’. Since then, Jane has been committed to upgrading her tech system so students can enjoy lessons ‘online’, ‘in person’, or a mixture of both. Jane’s tech system is now super high-tech (including an overhead camera to demonstrate fingerings and being able to display and draw on sheet music digitally)! While away at University, I did lessons with Jane online during the year. This offered me many advantages, particularly as I did not have to worry about transport. Skype lessons were a great alternative, and I felt I learnt just as much due to Jane’s commitment to providing high-quality online lessons.

I recommend Jane to anyone looking to play the piano. Jane is great with people at all stages of learning the piano, and all ages. She is so kind, friendly, and an excellent teacher.

The lessons flow just as well as if they were happening in person


Claire Murray

I have been having lessons with Jane via Skype since May 2020. Before then it was 20 years since I had taken piano lessons. As a working mum, I chose Skype lessons because there’s no travel time involved. Having lessons at home has made piano lessons possible for me, when they otherwise wouldn’t have been. I have been really surprised by how much I have enjoyed the lessons and how much progress I have made. Jane’s camera set up is ideal for remote teaching. Jane is able to demonstrate using a camera above her own piano, and seems to have no difficulty critiquing me, by watching me play remotely. The lessons flow just as well as if they were happening in person, and I look forward to them each week.

Jane has a knack for choosing a variety of new music in different styles that I like, and her lessons are genuinely fun – low stress and tailored to what I want to get out of them. At the end of every lesson I know I’ve learned something, and have something specific to work on during my practice. As a result, I’ve been able to feel real progress week by week. What started as a resurrected hobby to pass the time during lockdown has become a really enjoyable part of my week and something I hope to be able to keep up for a long time to come.

Jane instructs, inspires and motivates...


Sudheesh Chandran

It’s my pleasure to share my experience with Jane Trotter! My son Surya resumed piano class after a gap of 4 years. And felt very fortunate to have found her after much research on the internet.

My story of Jane’s abilities and skills begins with excellent competency as a pianist, and her obvious delight in teaching. Jane is very patient, kind and understanding, how well Jane instructs, inspires and motivates a student.

Even as a person who was watching I learned some basics of Piano in the introductory session.

Clearly, Jane takes her profession seriously, with lots of commitment and enthusiasm.
