Steve Law BA, MMus (Bristol University)
Welcome to my teaching page.
I’m an experienced DBS enhanced checked piano teacher living in East Sussex with my wife. I’ve been teaching piano, keyboards and theory for over 20 years.
I teach beginners in a fun and easy to understand way. All ages are welcome from beginners to advanced, for exams or for fun. I’m a down to earth and patient teacher and I aim to make pupils feels at ease.
I’ve coached many pupils to success in their ABRSM and Trinity Board exams for piano up to teaching diploma standard, electronic keyboard and music theory. I’ve coached GCSE to A grade. I also taught children electronic keyboard from age 5 to 16 in groups classes for a company around London schools for 8 years.
I have a wide range of knowledge on teaching and performing classical, jazz and pop music covering interpretation, theory and composition.
I aim to ensure pupils can read music in both hands and understand the basics of keyboard harmony. I encourage all styles and like to help pupils play their favourite pieces or songs. I’ve made many arrangements and transcriptions of pieces for pupils which I hope have inspired them to play. If you have your heart set on playing a particular piece of music I can help you play it!
I have also presented regular pupils’ concerts to encourage performing, develop confidence and allow pupils to share their music.
As an accompanist I have worked at independent schools like St Helens, Northwood and Northwood College for dance classes and exams. I also worked at Margaret Howard Theatre College in Watford and various dance schools including at the RAD.

My daughter has been learning piano with Steve for just under 2 years now. In that time my daughter has made huge progress and most importantly is enjoying learning to play the piano. Steve is an incredibly professional and patient teacher. He has always managed to make piano lessons fun and manageable for my daughters skill level. In every lesson he emphasises the positives and the mistakes are corrected with great tact and empathy. So my daughter always ends a lesson happy and motivated to practice.
The way Steve teaches makes the lessons fun and interesting for my daughter. You really need a lot of patience when working with youngsters and he definitely has what it takes. She enjoys taking lessons with him, and I’m very impressed with the way he teaches her. She practices on her own at home and I love hearing her progress. Steve is a great teacher and I would suggest him to anyone.
Steve has been teaching my daughter from complete beginner from about the age of nine. He is an excellent teacher and very good with young children. My daughter is now nearly 13 years old and Steve’s good work continues. In addition to the usual grading syllabuses he has been doing some off syllabus work with her (a new arrangement of Mamma Mia!)
Steve has taught my children for many years, taking them to Grade 8 and 5 Piano and introducing a variety of genres to increase their musical enjoyment. The concerts organised for students taught by the Steve gives them an important opportunity to perform in front of an audience. I am looking forward to their future progression as they explore music with Steve’s patient direction.
Steve Law has taught keyboard to my older son to grade 7 and he is currently teaching my younger son grade 5. During these years I have come to know him very well. Steve is an extremely reliable and an excellent teacher of keyboard and piano.
He has a very calm helpful nature when teaching students and has a rare quality to tailor his lesson to each individual student. He is an outstanding teacher of music and I would recommend him highly.
