This course was a wonderful quick way to get my son up to speed for his Grade 5 music theory exam. We were behind and overdue - but the course condensed everything he needed to know into 5 mornings of 2 hours - Simon's approach is really lovely and the atmosphere on the Zoom was good with a lovely varied mix of people contributing. It was an enjoyable morning of classes - I have highly recommended to others - and we passed with flying colours! The workbooks are fantastic for practise afterwards and Simon's post course support is brilliant.

An excellent Grade 5 Theory Course. My daughter passed first time with a merit! Simon Jordan is very good. The ongoing support (after the course) was really very helpful indeed, and the fact that you could attend the course again (without charge) for revision if required, was also so beneficial. Would highly recommend this course.

Simon played Wildest Dreams as my bridal party and I walked up the aisle, coordinating with the church pianist to deliver a stellar performance. As an inherently shy person, I was unsure of following my gut in going for a 'non-traditional' song for my bridal entrance, but it soon became abundantly clear Simon really could play anything and - more importantly - do the piece justice by putting in every effort, including tolerating me emailing him a week before with unnecessarily precise entrance timings! His professionalism and talent gave us the confidence to know we'd made the right choice, and I can't thank him enough. He also played for the drinks reception at Hampden House immediately after the ceremony at the church, and again performed magnificently - I'm only sorry I didn't get a chance to thank him in person on the day.

Simon did a magnificent job. Our wedding guests were wowed by his skill and it was an absolute pleasure to walk down the aisle with a violin accompaniment. Thank you so much.

My daughter thoroughly enjoyed the music theory one week crash course with Simon, so much so she is in the process of repeating it this week. My daughter learns piano at school and during these lessons much of her time has been spent playing, not theory. Simon’s course has certainly brought her up to speed and put her well on the path to being able to take the exam in due course.

Simon is a very learned and dedicated teacher. My son had been greatly motivated and gathered confidence after attending his lessons. Another great thing is we only paid for a eight hour lesson but my son was encouraged to attend many more lessons which had been very helpful! On the top of that his exam paper was corrected by Simon after he finished his lesson. I highly recommend these Grade 5 piano theory lessons.

Simon's course was really good - I think it's been great value for money. My son attended for the five days over the summer holiday before planning on taking his Grade 6 instrumental exam. He thinks it has improved not only his Music Theory for the purpose of passing his Grade 5 but has helped his understanding of scales for his instrument and also for his GCSE music. Simon has a lovely approach and manner. It was very easy to listen to and he was really patient with all the attendees. He was great at keeping in contact with the attendees during the afternoons and evenings through the homework that was set. I would highly recommend.

This was, I think, the most worthwhile week I've ever spent on something - went from zero understanding of theory beyond a vague notion that chords were a thing, to feeling like a new dimension of music had opened up. Simon is a fantastic teacher, owe everything to his explanations - I'd highly recommend this to anyone!

It was so lovely having Simon play at our wedding during the canapés and drinks part. It was a beautiful, sunny day and the piano in the background created such a perfect atmosphere for our summer vibe. Simon is such a talented pianist and was so accommodating to our requests and was totally professional throughout. Thanks Simon! Sam and Jon
