Student Performances

Manchester-based adult learner Simon Nichol received piano lessons as a teenager, and returned to learning the piano in 2019 - after a 40-year break! Simon is working towards the Grade 8 ABRSM exam and the Grade 5 ABRSM theory exam. He takes weekly  private online piano lessons with Rory at CanKnowPiano on Skype. Here is his performance of Rachmaninov's relaxing 'Moment Musicaux No. 5'. Simon is playing a Schimmel Upright Piano, acquired from Foryths, Manchester (M3 2GR).

Sam is a 'big kid' learner at a local school, and recently passed his Grade 1 ABRSM exam with Distinction! He takes weekly  private online piano lessons with Rory at CanKnowPiano on Skype. Here is his performance of 'Yasmine Flower' from Lang Lang's 'Mastering the Piano, Book 1', with lovely use of the pedal at the end.

What Do My Students Say?

I consider myself very fortunate to have been able to have piano lessons over Skype with Rory since moving to Sweden. This has allowed me to access such an excellent standard of teaching, as well as the convenience of having lessons in my living room. I would absolutely recommend this!

 - Steven, 2019

Rory is an absolutely phenomenal piano teacher. Over the space of a year, Rory truly transformed my playing and provided me with the tools to analyse and improve a piece of music beyond anything I could have hoped for. I was awarded a trophy for the 'Most Promising Pianist': one of the proudest moments of my life. He would be my first recommendation for anybody in Manchester looking to get the most out of their piano playing.
