Please note: I am not taking any new students at the moment. However, Ebony Music books are still available. Contact me by email if you wish to place an order.


Are you thinking about piano lessons for yourself or your children? I’d love to help you! Please contact me for a free taster lesson.

I hope to give you here a flavour of ‘the way I do things’ at piano lessons and answer some of the questions you might have.

Ebony Music was created by me, Esther Cohen, and my husband Archie McLellan. Before moving to Medway, Kent, in 2017, we ran a busy piano teaching practice in Scotland for over 30 years. Over that time, we were able to fine tune our piano course as we discovered what worked best. The result is a comprehensive piano teaching course which can take learners from their first lesson all the way to Grade 8 standard.

On my YouTube channel, you can see hundreds of videos of my pupils playing at their lessons and at pupils’ concerts. I think you’ll like what you see and hear.

On Facebook, you can see reviews left by pupils and their families.

Learning to play the piano is learning for life. My hope is that my pupils will gain a love of music which they will be able to develop in whatever way they choose. Few of my pupils intend to take up a career in music, but music can become an important element in their lives, either as a private leisure pursuit or as a shared activity with others.

I hope you and your child are excited about piano lessons and eager to start.
