Student Testimonials

" I studied composition with Dr Olyver for over six months. He played a crucial role in helping me organise my portfolio for my Purcell School application. Dr Olyver's teaching is patient and professional. His explanations of music theory are much clearer than what I experienced with other professors." – Oscar

"This music theory course was really good! Dr Olyver made concepts clear, and I went from being a music theory beginner to passing my grade 5 theory exam faster than I thought possible. The lessons were engaging, and I never felt overwhelmed. Highly recommend for anyone wanting to level up their music skills!"Penelope

"Dr Olyver is such a versatile teacher. I started off learning Grade 5 theory with him, achieving a distinction. We are now working on grade 8 theory and in the past he has helped with GCSE and A level composition. His expertise and dedication have helped me come a long way since my grade 5 theory days, better preparing me for starting music college. And most importantly, he always finds a way to make our online lessons fun and engaging!" - Teresa
