"Nicol is simply an exceptional teacher, bringing a unique blend of professionalism, brilliance and fun to lessons. My 7 year old now loves playing the piano, he enjoys lessons and has gained a distinction in his recent exam thanks to her fabulous tutorage.  Nicol is a jewel of a find for us and I could not recommend more highly." - Clair C

"Francesco has been a great teacher for our 11 year old son. He has progressed quite speedily, learning the songs he likes as well as scales. They interact together well during the lesson. A great teacher for a kid!" - Michelle P

"I have piano lessons at River Music School. I'm a beginner and a mature student (I'm 65), which is surely the most difficult combination to teach. My teacher is Nicol, and in the few weeks I've been attending, she has helped me learn faster than I'd thought possible. She's very patient and knows just how hard to push me so that I always leave the lesson with a sense of achievement and enthusiasm to go and practise. I now believe I will soon be able to call myself a pianist. I can't wait." - Clifford H

"Two of my sons are taught by Natalie. I stumbled across River Music School London in a frantic search online and I cannot believe how lucky I got! Nicol runs a superb school with great teachers. Natalie is patient driven and firm with my boys and their progress is consistent. They are encouraged and challenged during every lesson and their enthusiasm to practice in between lessons is remarkable. I cannot recommend the school enough. There is constant communication and a hand over after each lesson so you as a parent can be fully involved and help your child's progress even if you are not musical." - Carryl T

"I have started to take piano lessons with Nicol and I am very happy with the decision I made. She is for sure an experienced musician who knows what she is doing. She motivates me, challenges me, and has many different ways to help me understand. She also has great patience and great customer care. Very happy will continue with her after my 10 classes." - Dubrazka R

"Having a great time. Huw is a really committed and diligent teacher. He is always prepared, knows what he's talking about and is flexible to what I prefer to learn. As a professional who learns in the evenings after work, the arrangement I have with RMS and Huw is very convenient and I learn a lot!"

"My son has started piano lessons with Nicol couple of months ago. Nicol is an excellent teacher, she’s very patient, professional and a highly skilled music teacher with a variety of musical experience. I am amazed how much my son has progressed in such a short time and his confidence has grown too.
I highly recommend Nicol!!!"

"I’m having a wonderful experience with the service, it's everything I was expecting, good professor and the classes are very clear and easy to understand. I highly recommend River Music School London, for anyone who wants to learn music." - Milton G

"Luciano is a great teacher. He’s extremely patient but focused on getting me results and progress. He’s very good at mixing up lessons so that there are parts that challenge me and help me get to where I want to be when it comes to playing bass guitar, but also takes interest in songs I like and helps me learn them to keep it fun. Nicol is great for communications and organising the lessons, she’s very efficient and friendly." - Annie K

"Both my daughters have recently started having music lessons at the River Music School. They absolutely love it and after each lesson are inspired to show the new songs they have learned! I would absolutely recommend the school to anyone with young children interested in learning the piano."
