Just leave your details with our staff and we’ll work through our matching procedure and get in touch with you when we have discovered the instruction you are looking for. We will then ask the tutor to phone you personally.

4. Learn at home or in a studio close by.

Or, alternatively, you can receive lessons in the studio of a local piano tutor, and be enriched by the learning environment they’ve made. Our community includes both studio based and peripatetic teachers.

Building your confidence and providing you with practical know-how are important elements of our piano lessons.

10. Master good technique from day 1 and avoid problems.

The fact is, there are simply no distance-learning books or YouTube videos that could ever compare with on-the-spot interaction between you and your Southampton piano tutor, in your very own piano coaching.

11. Our tutors can instruct all levels

You could be new to the instrument and in search of piano lessons for beginners or perhaps you are an intermediate or advanced student already. Regardless of your level and whether you will be practicing on a piano or a keyboard, we’ll be able to help you in your search.

Frequently asked questions

1. Will searching for piano tuition through Stars & Catz link me with the highest quality professionals?

Absolutely. That’s because Stars & Catz is a network, not an agency. We attract the top tutors because our ‘network’ status means that, unlike agencies, Stars & Catz does not receive a commission percentage from lesson payments you make to your tutor.

Quality music tutors appreciate this. Prospering, qualified music teachers would never pay 20 or 30% from every lesson payment to a third party. (And we don’t blame them!)

This is the reason why our network is filled up with happy, skilful tutors, and that is exactly why searching for piano tuition in Southampton through Stars & Catz will get you right to them.

2. I wish to concentrate on a certain style of music. Are you able to assist with that?

Sometimes a student will have been motivated to learn by a certain genre of music or maybe a particular musician or composer. In your case it could have been jazz piano or perhaps classical music of a specific age. No matter what your unique passion is, we can hone in on teachers who meet your dreams.

3. How can I be certain your piano classes will be good?

We don’t allow just anyone to be a part of our network.

We make sure that we get to know the music teacher beforehand, and carefully screen for related accreditations such as a degree or diploma and practical experience. You may feel certain that when we’re doing the search for piano classes in Southampton we are only speaking to knowledgeable and top quality professionals.

4. Is it really true that it is costless to find piano lessons with Stars & Catz?


The special working relationship we’ve created with the music teachers and music schools in the Stars & Catz community makes it possible for our team members to spend their time on your piano tuition in Southampton search without ever charging you for the work.

All you have to pay are the classes themselves, nothing more. We won’t put anything extra on top of the fees of the tutor, and you won’t unearth any added agency or finder’s charges squirreled away anywhere (since they are not there!)

5. What will be the frequency of the lessons?

We leave this up to you. Weekly classes are normally advised but if you would prefer fortnightly classes then that’s fine. For students who want a more intensive programme, such as classes over a summer break or maybe a short yet frequent timetable leading up to an important performance, that can also be accommodated.

6. Might I locate piano tutoring for a group?

Yes, our piano lessons in Southampton can support groups, as long as the complete group has already been formed. The Stars & Catz matching service does not include adding new students directly into current groups.

7. How about piano lessons and gift vouchers?

If you would like to locate piano classes in Southampton as a gift for a person, please be aware that the fewest quantity of lessons available for a present is 5.

8. I just want to locate piano lessons for adults. Would this be doable?

No trouble. If you are an adult, in need of piano tuition in Southampton for yourself, you’ve arrived at the best place. The Stars & Catz tutors are highly experienced in teaching adult students.

9. Can you help me to get a piano tutor for my CHILD?

Certainly! More research comes out each year about the benefits of studying music for kids. We are industry experts at choosing the right piano tutors for kids in Southampton because we know about the experience of our teachers in terms of teaching children.

12. When exactly are piano classes available?

We prefer to put that the other way around. When exactly are you normally available? Once we know this, we will ensure that is an important part of the search requirements when we are completing your piano tuition in Southampton search.

13. What if I wish to locate piano lessons to obtain a single lesson?

We cannot support you with that one unfortunately. We are not able to undertake our no cost matching process for piano lessons in Southampton if you just require the one lesson.

Broadly speaking, yes we do, however we would have to contact our Southampton music tutors on a case by case basis.

16. What’s the specific location of the piano lessons?

We can’t answer this one until we’ve concluded our matching process!

There are a variety of reasons behind this. Sometimes we’ve got a teacher or music school in your suburb who suits your necessities, on the other hand maybe there is an outstanding travelling music teacher who offers at-home lessons in your location and might be ideal for your enquiry.
