Do you have children who want to learn a musical instrument? Or did you give up playing when you were younger and want to pick up again? Or perhaps you are a musician who wants to extend your range of instruments and learn from a real performer?

Jack McDougal is a qualified and accomplished DBS registered music teacher, offering fun lessons for beginners to advanced in saxophone, clarinet, flute, piano and music theory.

Backed up by years of performance and tuition experience, Jack offers private lessons and regularly works with children at schools across South Wales via the Cardiff and Vale Music Service (CAVMS).

Lessons in the following instruments are at casual, expert, beginner, intermediate and advanced levels

  • Piano
