About

Juan Rezzuto believes that people connect to music at different times of their lives. As you watch him work, it is stunning to observe how he can be involved in the details and never lose sight of the big picture. His approach to piano pedagogy is very unique, one which simultaneously combines music technology, playing, reading and writing.

I wanted to write this review because thanks to this team, I have regained the confidence to study piano. The teachers are always happy, they make a real effort to teach, and they are a very cohesive community. WKMT might be the first London school I truly felt understood and listened to. I strongly recommend any person willing to learn how to play the piano to contact WKMT. More...

It’s a great music school and great experience for students. They have lovely teachers and admin support, my son really enjoys going for his piano classes every week and I highly recommend those who are going to either learn music from new or improve their existing skills.

Our daughter started the piano lesson last year when she’s 5 (just one month shy to turning 6). She loved the lessons as the teachers are friendly, fun, patient and simply great. One year on, she passed ABRSM grade 1 with distinction, which we did not think possible, or even happening, when she started. I sometimes wish my piano teacher when I was a child was like yours. Thank you! More...

I picked up the piano a couple of months ago and having a teacher from the beginning of my journey was the best decision. I have really benefited from regular lessons at WKMT; the teachers are professional and the atmosphere great. Highly recommended for adult students. More...

I study piano in the US and was visiting London for a month and decided to have lessons and some practice time at WKMT. Alvaro was a wonderful teacher. His approach and focus was different than my US teacher and I was able to improve in the short time. When I returned to the US my teacher appreciated what I had learned and has asked me to continue some of the studies that Alvaro had recommended. The environment of WKMT is very positive and supportive so improvement comes easily. More...

From Tommy Rogers

I was looking for a guitar teacher and searched online only to find too big a selection. Next dilemma, who to choose? I wasn't just looking for a guitarist, with little or no experience of teaching, who wanted to supplement his/her income, I wanted a teacher of guitar with a proven track record of teaching, a syllabus and professionalism. A friend recommended West Kensington Music Team. I met with Juan and Gisela of WKMT and I realised immediately that they were who I was looking for. Their professionalism is incredible and their passion for what they are doing is obvious.

Gisela was lumbered with the task of teaching me, an absolute novice. Five months on and I am absolutely delighted with my progress. Giselas' tenacity and professionalism are first class as is she.

Best wishes to all the team and I wish you the success you all deserve for providing and incredible service.

Big Love Tommy Rogers

I started to learn the piano at WKMT a year and a half ago as a beginner. From the very first lesson I felt welcome and like visiting friends, who are also your teachers. Every teacher is very positive and motivating and enables you to learn and progress at your own pace. I worked with Gisela on the piano and she is a great teacher, very patient and you can feel her love for what she is doing. I later on added singing lessons with Michael and that was a great decision. I am hooked with music now more than ever before and I am looking forward to every single lesson. Great experience and great value for money! More...

A most enjoyable repertoire performed with ease, set in great acoustics, just makes you feel as if you could just pick up an instrument and play, well you kind of can after few years of training, unless you are a genius of course.
That’s what beauty of art is all about!

My experience recording with WKMT.Recording a song for your portfolio can be very expensive, but trust me it is worth it. Recording your vocals is fun, but the hard bit and what costs the most is the engineering side. For five days, spending two hours each of those days, I sat with Juan watching him pick and edit my voice for ‘Colours of The Wind,’ from Pocahontas. This process made me realise how much detail goes into making a good recording. To start, we were going through all my vocal takes, picking which sections sounded better. This took about 1hour. After that it was all about placing the vocals in time with the backing tracking. That already took 2 hours. For the rest of the 8 hours, it was all about placing reverb, editing the sound quality of my voice, thickening parts and prolonging some vocals where it needed to be. As you can see, this is a long process and needs a lot of attention, but at the end of it we were both happy with finished piece. From this experience I would recommend any performer to spend the money to get a recording professionally done, and if you have the opportunity to sit with the sound editor too you should. This would avoid disappointment if you are expecting something to what you think it might sound like, and if you are wanting it for your portfolio, you only want the best of the best! More...

The team are so lovely and such good teachers. They'll give as much guidance as you want while letting you structure your lessons to your goals. They really care about their students and are always making sure you're comfortable, happy and feel like your progressing. Their house style is difficult to implement if you've learnt elsewhere but it improves the strength and dexterity of your hands dramatically whilst giving you more control and endurance. I'm currently learning classical and jazz in tandem with separate teachers and they all manage to stay informed and unified despite teaching different practices at different times to different students.
The studio itself is split into several rooms that all have a really nice atmosphere and, of course, gorgeous pianos - they are really fun to play. The first lesson is at a discount and then it's really worth buying in bulk for the rest - for the resources and quality of tuition you get, it's a steal.

I started to study piano with Juan and Gisela from scratch, in a few weeks I was already playing a very interesting piece and a year later I was surprised by the progress I had made. All this wouldn't have been possible without extraordinary teachers and a great enjoyable atmosphere. After having moved out from UK, learning piano here is one of the things I miss the most.

I've been taking guitar lessons with Gisela for nearly a year now - and it has hugely improved my playing ability after initially self teaching. She corrected my bad habits and set me on the right path to continue developing and improving. The depth of her knowledge and how well trained her ear is blows me away every time! Her rigour on my learning is excellent, ensuring I am applying the right balance of good technique but also recognising that I am not a perfectionist either and can stagnate if repeating the same concepts too repetitively. This balance has really helped keep me focused on continuing to improve, rather than only playing for fun and so I really look forward to my lessons and learning from the expert each time! Very highly recommended. More...

A year ago I decided to learn play piano from the scratch - so thrilled I did. Not only I can play Moonlight Sonata now, but it brings me so much pleasure and joy also for others around me. That all thanks to West Kensington Music Team - especially to Juan and Gisela, they are encouraging, engaging and understand me as an individual. Their ability to adapt to my character and personality is amazing in order to find best way to teach without pressure within my own time. I always have super time, after each lesson feel good sky high! Really! My work schedule is busy and often changing, Juan is flexible and understands, makes sure I always get lesson with himself, Gisela or other Music Team members. Music lifts spirits, enhances life, it has saved my soul and it will remain one of my favourite hobbies eternally. Some people say in order to play good, you need to learn at a very young age - those are the ones who talk for themselves, I'm in late 20's! If you have passion, love for music, enough ambition, it is never too late... Grand piano is on my list :) More...

My son has been taking lessons from at WKMT for over a year and loves it! His confidence has grown considerably and he loves the idea of taking his piano lessons from such a talented musician as Juan Rezzuto and guitar from also much talented Gisela Paterno. The whole team of the Studio are very helpful, caring and approachable people. Being quite flexible as well, making it easy to change lessons according to our needs. We are very happy there and highly recommend their services if you wish to have a teacher, who enjoys what they do, and deliver top quality results to yourselves or your children.
Thank you WKMT!!! From the Stavrou Family

The WKMT is a very good music school as an adult, every lesson is planned on demand and you can adapt your learning to your calendar.

I found the WKMT a long time ago in 2013 on Google... since then, my hour of singing class is my favourite hour of every week, learning to do better what I love the most!
They have a great Team of Professionals that take care of me in many different ways, from receiving me with a cup of tea or coffee, or changing my classes anytime I need according my schedule.
I'm having classes with Michael, he's amazing! My classes are awesome, he's very passionate about his job, demanding and so funny... I can notice my progress on my singing too, of course. I'm delighted of have a Teacher like him and definitely recommend him and the whole Team.

It must be more than 12 months ago I had been looking for a piano teacher who was highly accomplished, knowledgeable, a proven track record of helping someone like myself with absolutely no knowledge of playing the piano. I have found that in both Juan and Gisela,

I came to them with just wanting to learn to play a piece I had always wanted to learn.

They have taken me from having absolutely no knowledge of playing the piano to being able to play a number of challenging pieces including my original request and now on to taking Grade 3 exam. Simply amazing as playing chop sticks before was a challenge for me.

What I most like is they make you feel welcome and at ease along with their genuine desire for you to do well. The high standards they maintain ensure nothing is missed with patient encouragement.

Whatever level you wish to attain I highly recommended piano teacher – WKMT.

I am a student at West Kensington music, I'm also an aspiring Music producer. Having piano lessons has developed my creativity in music and the understand of music theory. Since I've been a student at WKMT i have sold some music in america which has opened up a lot of doors for me. If you are interested in music in anyway I'd advice you to study with WKMT.

I would have to give WKMT a 5 star rating for their performance.

They also run concerts in beautiful buildings for their pupils and generally bring a lot of energy and enthusiasm to their work in a very natural and professional way. And I am grateful to the flexible way I can arrange my lessons around my own very busy schedule as a working mum with three children!

I was introduced to the WKMT by a close friend who bought me a gift of 2 hours of recording time to make a recording of Liszt's Petrarch Sonnets and a contemporary piece by British composer Joseph Phibbs that I had recently studied intensively. I am an amateur pianist and have never made a recording in a professional studio. My musician friends told me that this can be stressful. As a retired doctor (and despite the fact that I have studied piano since the age of four), I was a little apprehensive but after stepping in to the WKMT studio, any nerves vanished. Gisela and Juan have the gift of putting one at one's ease at once. There is advice, guidance, support, warmth, humour, coffee, and endless patience. And of course there is great flexibility with appointment times. Nothing was too much for them. Juan is hugely supportive and kind and the mastering stage was an extraordinary educational experience. He threw in some great pianistic tips too!! I am thrilled with the final, mastered recordings. Whether as mp3 and wav files shared via Dropbox, or the beautifully recorded CD's, it is a dream come true. And the Yamaha Grand is truly exceptional. I will be honoured to return to WKMT when I am in a position to record something again. Thank you Juan and Gisela. You are great professionals. I loved the experience! More...

Not only are they highly professional and efficient, but also make everything enjoyable - which in my humble opinion I think is the most important. After a lesson I leave feeling inspired and excited to work on the upcoming projects - this is down to their teaching methods and the fact that they are passionate about what they do and how they do it.I have had Piano lessons since I was a young boy and I came to the West Kensington Music Team to specialise In Composition and music theory- I have been thrilled with how they have approached my specific needs as a musician, and I can clearly see they cater for all their students whatever level from beginner to advanced.I would highly recommend the West Kensington Music Team they are a pleasure to work with!

Everyone at the West Kensington Music Team are experience musicians and excellent tutors. Juan has created a very hospitable atmosphere within his home with the added bonus of complimentary beverages. I started taking piano lessons along with music theory lessons in order to prepare for my university audition which required a 45 minute theory exam and 10 minute aural test, and thanks to the team I have been offered a place. They cater to individuals of all ages, their prices are excellent and they also know how to have a laugh. I would recommend anyone who wants to learn an instrument or prepare for an exam to the West Kensington Music Team. More...
