Our Faculty: Piano Teachers in Kensington
The London Piano Centre differentiates itself by offering a faculty of internationally renowned pianists. Founder Gabriele Baldocci, an acclaimed concert pianist and faculty member at Trinity Laban, believes that piano is best learned from practising musicians; as a result, every teacher at our piano school is a professional pianist. Our faculty includes Mikhail Kazakevich, Sergio De Simone, and David Malusà.
If you would like to sign up for a trial lesson with one of our professors, please reach us at your earliest convenience. And if your professor is unable to attend a lesson because of his performance schedule, you will either be offered a reschedule, or another faculty member will teach your lesson.

What To Expect in Lessons at the London Piano Centre
Our teachers have studied and performed with the leading pianists of our day, and as a result, your lessons will be dynamic, inspiring, and full of information. We want to create musicians, not simply pianists, and we can guarantee that you will have a deeper appreciation for your repertoire, instrument, and music as a whole at the end of each session.
Are you working on Baroque or early music? We’ve performed it, and we can help you prepare for a historically informed presentation or recital. Do you have an affinity for Mozart, early Beethoven, or other music from the classical era? We would love to work with you on that as well. As touring pianists often do, we’ve performed extensively in the Romantic era; Liszt, Rachmaninoff, Prokofiev and more are not strangers to our faculty. Whether you’re hoping to progress in traditional or contemporary literature, we would love to work with you. We can also help you learn jazz or other popular genres, and we always root our teaching in music theory.
We also place importance on technique and tension-free playing; we want you to stay healthy and relaxed at the piano, and that focus will help you play with increasing speed and dexterity.
