Why Milton Keynes Music Academy is Buckinghamshire's #1 choice for music lessons
Founded and directed by international concert pianist Gabriele Baldocci
Hello, I’m Gabriele Baldocci, an internationally acclaimed concert pianist, professor at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance and at The Purcell School, founder of the London Piano Centre and of the Milton Keynes Music Academy.
I believe in offering only the best music lessons Milton Keynes has to offer; and I want students to be able to learn from active performers and qualified musicians — after all, is there a better way to learn an instrument than to be inspired by those who are enthusiastically spreading music in concert form?
Thus the Milton Keynes Music Academy was born. I personally chose the entire faculty, which I am proud to consider the best in the area. All our professors are experienced music teachers, incredible performers and will share the joy of playing an instrument from a convenient location in Milton Keynes.
We offer music lessons for adults and children, so whether you are looking to sharpen your own skills or those of your child, please get in touch.

What people say about us
Very good lessons offered by Milton Keynes Music Academy. Very experiences and professional teaching!
Fantastic experience learning here!
Wonderful experience, with first class tutelage of the highest professional calibre.
I have been performing with Gabriele Baldocci for twenty years and I consider him as one of the greatest musicians of his generation. He is a also wonderful music teacher and an inspiring personality. The Milton Keynes Music Academy is his latest project. If you are looking for music lessons in Milton Keynes, you are the luckiest person in the world to have such an amazing school near you!
I was privileged to study with Gabriele Baldocci for three years and I must say that every lesson felt like opening a treasure chest full of technical and musical gems. It is wonderful to see that Gabriele and his staff are now generously sharing this invaluable knowledge to a broad range of students. The Milton Keynes Music Academy will be changing many lives and forming the next generation of enthusiastic musicians.
I completed my MMus From Trinity Laban Conservatoire a few years ago and am now having lessons at Milton Keynes Music Academy to prepare for auditions and competitions. I can honestly say that I have one of the best teachers I have ever had. It's rare to find a teacher that: 1. Understands piano technique and is able to explain proficiently. 2. Has an ongoing performing career and is therefore able to share his experience in the field. 3. Has studied with great names. And I might also add that he's friendly and humble, which is not always common with top piano teachers!
