Hear it from our students themselves!

"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

"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

"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!" - Hanns N

"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 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

Certificate of Excellence - River Music School London

"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

"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

"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."

"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." - Nicholas C

"The school is super efficient at organising lessons, very quick to respond to emails and a very friendly bunch! The teachers themselves are fantastic! I have had two guitar teachers (due to scheduling issues) and both have been incredibly patient and kind. Absolutely necessary for a beginner to not feel embarrassed when playing. Shout out to Alex K who tolerates my nervous waffling and makes me feel comfortable about playing even if I don't think I'm very good. Have recommended to multiple friends." - Verity N

"Nicol at River Music School helped put me in touch with Alessia for piano lessons. Alessia has been great in not only teaching me the mechanics of playing the piano, but also going beyond the sheet music and teaching me about chords, harmonic structure and how to start building music together myself. Alessia is super knowledgeable with a bubbly personality who makes learning a new skill great fun. I would highly recommend reaching out to Nicol if you’re looking to learn a new musical skill."​ - Imogen B

"I wanted to take a moment to thank Patrick for his outstanding capability to make learning an enjoyable experience. Patrick is a superb musician and has been very supportive to my daughter in every single lesson (Piano)" - Mo D

"Excellent school! I had violin lessons with MiJung who is a wonderful teacher and a great capability to make learning fun and easy. In a short time I really progressed and greatly enjoyed the lessons.The communication with the school is excellent. Very responsive and always able to help with adjustments of schedule.

I highly recommend River Music School for their quality of teachers, service and price."         - Sylvia K

"My son’s piano tutor George is an incredible tutor! My son enjoyed every lesson with him! Highly recommended and well done for River Music School London" - Yang L
