About Derek Buchan

Based in Carnoustie, Angus, Derek has a teaching practice that includes students of all ages and abilities: beginners looking to start on their piano journey through to students looking to develop their skills and have success at examination and Diploma level.

Derek has played the piano nearly all his life and is a Licentiate of the Royal Academy of Music in teaching. He also holds a Dip ABRSM in Piano Performance and has performed regularly in public in recent years. Having studied for many years at an advanced level with a Professor at the Royal College of Music in London, Derek is able to pass on those skills and experience to his students.

He also encourages students to study music theory in a fun and practical way, to explore different styles of music such as Jazz and to compose.

Derek offers regular lessons or, alternatively, a one off consultation in advance of perhaps an examination or performance.

Since Derek took me on he has managed to get me through Grades 7 and 8, after having given up at Grade 6 fifty years before! He is knowledgeable and personable and is able to get the balance right between identifying weaknesses and giving encouragement. I would recommend him to any student, of any age.

Derek is able to adapt his teaching style when required and can be learner lead. If the student is struggling to grasp a concept he can vary his approach and is not rigid ie one size suits all. He also tries to vary the syllabus to maintain students interest and always tries to make the lessons fun!
