East London Piano was created in 2011 out of need for high quality private music education in East London. We are now in our thirteenth year of successful operation and we boast an outstanding track record in graded exams as well as many student awards in local competitions and festivals. We really are the top piano centre in East London for children as well as adults!
We now have 3 studios in Hackney and we aim to provide tailored piano lessons to meet your level of aptitude/skills. We offer amongst other things: personalised study pathways, free online learning resources, student concerts, masterclasses with international concert artists, recital outings and an annual scholarship for an outstanding young musician.
We are also part of Children’s University – an international charity that provides children with access to learning experiences outside the normal school day.
Our tutors are experienced, talented musicians who have trained in the best schools in the UK and abroad; they remain active on the concert scene, performing around the country and internationally.
We have welcomed hundreds of students through the years at our studios and have taught a number of celebrity students too: Little Boots, FKA Twigs, members of We Have Band and Spector and many others!

This is why we do what we do
I’ve always regretted quitting piano lessons at a young age. Our 8 year old daughter has been taking piano lessons at East London Piano for over 3 years now and loves it. We love how it has shaped her appreciation for classical music and how it has benefited her academic work at school. Now our 4 year old son has just started lessons and we already see the benefits!”
ELP is a fantastic, friendly piano school with incredible teachers. My daughter was an absolute beginner when she started last Sept and I can't believe how much she has progressed in that time. She loves the lessons and her confidence and enjoyment of playing is great to see. There is great communication and a strong sense of community there too. Cannot recommend highly enough.
