Pianist, Teacher and Vocal Coach


David Soward is a pianist, piano teacher and vocal coach living and working in West Oxfordshire.  A well-rounded musician with a wealth of performing and teaching experience, he has this to say about his approach to learning and teaching:   

As a practising pianist (literally) I am constantly learning more and encountering difficulties in a new light.  Both my teaching and my own studies benefit from each other.‘ moi by Susana

One of my frequent comments to new pupils is to avoid practising too much! In other words, by all means learn the notes but don’t practise the wrong ones.  How to learn the right notes (in the right order!) and how to play them with intelligence and expression – and enjoy doing so – is what I hope I can try and pass on.’
