  Piano For Adults!

Always wanted to learn the piano? Now's your chance! 


I'm Diane Paul, creator of the Manchester Piano Tutor Structured Piano System that helps adults and children, beginners, advanced and rusty pianists from age 7 upwards. If you have always wanted to learn or re-learn the piano or improve your existing skills but have never had the time to  balance this hobby with your careers, education or private lives come for an introductory lesson. 


FREE tip sheets on where to look for pianos and keyboards. What is the difference? What kind of instrument do you need? Where to get them from. Recommendations for best tuners and removers. Fill in the contact form now for your FREE copy while stocks last. 


Not sure whether to go ahead?  Book a free consultation by phone or email with Diane Paul to discuss your current learning needs and to iron out any concerns about taking lessons.

  1. how to sit at the piano

  2. how to hold your hands when playing

  3. four different note types and their lengths

  4. five right hand notes
