About Me

Steve Edwards

I began learning the piano at age 8 with private lessons. At 14 I attended the Northern School of Music junior school, in Manchester, where I gained my A.B.R.S.M. grade 8. I became a full time student of the Northern School aged 16.

Two years later the school amalgamated with the Manchester College of Music and I became a student of the Royal Northern College of Music. I was very lucky to be chosen as the pianist for the R.N.C.M. big band, giving me the opportunity to diversify from my classical studies. We had great fun playing for a week at the Edinburgh fringe! I also gained my L.T.C.L. diploma during my four years at the R.N.C.M. Studying along with me during this time were renowned pianist Peter Donahoe and  pop singer and pianist Howard Jones. (I bought my first electronic keyboard from Howard!)

After my excellent student days I worked both teaching and playing, with agency work, residencies and cruise ships. I have taught as a peripatetic in schools and privately for many years, with hundreds of my students gaining A.B.R.S.M. exam passes. I like to encourage students to experience different styles of music from classics to popular, pop, blues and jazz.

Composing and arranging has always been a passion and I enjoy arranging music for my students. This gives them an opportunity to play their favorite pieces at a level they can manage. Many of my arrangements can be downloaded for free from this web site. I have also written a set of tutor books using the knowledge I have gained over the years of teaching. The compositions in these books have been created with a more modern feel and an emphasis on fun! I have also written books on music theory, chords, harmony and composition.
