He has been associated to some of the greatest Maestro’s, among which include Bruno Leonardo Gelber, Sebastian Colombo, Elsa Puppulo and Eugenia Rozenthal. This valuable education has enabled Juan Rezzuto to master a variety of approaches to piano tutoring.
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.
As a piano teacher, his greatest challenge is to instigate a hidden and deep rooted spark within each of his protégés. He believes that everyone should learn at their own pace, and accommodates this by providing tailored programmes. He has been very successful in preparing students for the ABRSM and Guildhall Trinity Exams.

Our professionals are passionate about teaching and, most importantly, about approaching your learning process in that particular way you need
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!
We started here a year ago and couldn't be happier. The teachers are always friendly and patient and fun. We love the annual concert where all the pupils perform at an event. It gives something to aim for, but is a great experience for the children.
Juan and Gisela run a great school!
My daughter has been having piano tuition at the studio since June 2016. She has made great improvements with the help of her tutor so we are pleased with her progress.
All the staff including the artistic director Juan are very welcoming to both of us.
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!
It has been a full rounded musical experience for me so far. I strongly recommend this practise to any student seeking for top-notch and effective piano teachers
