Hello, I’m Gabriele Baldocci, an internationally acclaimed concert pianist and founder of the London Piano Centre.
I believe in offering only the best piano lessons London has to offer; and I want students to be able to learn from active concert pianists — after all, is there a better way to learn the piano than to be inspired by those who are enthusiastically spreading music in concert form?
Thus the London Piano Centre was born. Our professors come from a lineage of teachers that can be traced back to Beethoven, and we want to share the joy of piano with you from our studio on Baker Street.
We Offer piano lessons for adults and children, so whether you are looking to sharpen your own skills or those of your child, please get in touch.-Gabriele Baldocci
