Please note we are no longer able to accompany at centres more than 2 miles from SE22 9JD.
We receive many enquiries (pretty much always last minute!) from instrumentalists sitting a graded ABRSM or Trinity exam that requires a pianist to accompany them. Accompanying a well-prepared student is usually very straightforward and requires just one rehearsal. Nb. we do not cover aural tests in the accompaniment rehearsal. This is the responsibility of your teacher.
One run-through at the SE22 Piano School. The length of the session is typically 15 minutes for Grades 1 to 5 to 30 minutes for Grades 6 to 8.
All my prep and travel time and expenses to the Denmark Hill/Camberwell centre or local schools within walking distance: Dulwich Hamlet Junior School, JAGS and Alleyn’s.
The exam itself.
Extra rehearsals and aural lessons are charged at our usual teaching rate of £40 / 30 mins.
Pupils should provide original piano part. For copyright purposes, we Do Not accept photocopy materials. Teachers have no responsibility for providing the piano part.
Email se22pianoschool @ gmail.com to enquire about accompanist availability. Please note that due to the changes during Covid to many exam centres we are unable to travel to venues such as Bromley, Croydon or Central London. We advise looking online for an accompanist that lives in these areas.

Lockdown was a challenging time for our business as we had to shut our premises and move to online lessons with only a few days’ notice. Inevitably we lost some students but have been working hard to rebuild the student roster and we are nearly back up to pre-Covid numbers. We are looking forward to reopening our doors in September for the new school year and hopefully running lots of events such as the Dulwich Music Festival and our termly student recitals.
We are delighted to have made the finals in this category and would really appreciate your vote.
