After gaining a PGCE (Secondary Music) at the Institute of Education, UCL, I gained qualified teacher status in 2009 and then I taught for Richmond Music Trust from 2011 to 2014. I have taught piano lessons at a leading boys preparatory school since 2012 and at an independent girls school since 2017. I am on the DBS Update Service and have a clear DBS record. I have taught children and adults from ABRSM Prep Test up to Diploma level, classical and jazz syllabuses. Many of my students do very well in exams but, most importantly, they enjoy learning!

'Thank you for being my piano teacher. I have learnt a lot with you and you have been great fun. I now really enjoy jazz. So thank you so much again.'


'Our daughter has started having lessons with Jack Hurst. He's a nice young man, very well qualified, great with kids, easy going, flexible and accommodating, and really good value. Daughter (aged 8) says: Jack is very good at playing the piano and I love learning with him.'

'Thank you for being a great teacher. You made piano so much more fun. Also, you are the reason I carried on.' 

'Mr Hurst has been an absolutely wonderful teacher... you've been so great with him.'

'Thank you for the lessons, leading me to Prep Test success.'
