Matisse - The Piano Lesson

He works largely to the Associated Board syllabus. The students he coaches are all ages - from seven-year-old children to seventy-year-old adults - and all levels from beginner to diploma (see here for a profile of his students): all have an enthusiasm to learn, which he finds infectious.

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph described Fergus Black as an 'inspirational teacher' when he was nominated for a 'Pride in Peterborough' Award.

He has extensive teaching experience, and has trained both children and adults for competition, music exams, auditions, school and college music entrance exams, and concert performances.

Fergus himself, knows how to pass exams successfully: he took his letters in music in 1999. Rather longer ago, when he was at school, he was awarded the Sheila Mossman Prize for the highest marks in the UK for his piano Grade VIII exam. In 2006 he undertook a week of training with the Associated Board, focussing on how grade exams are administered and marked, and how examiners assess the performances they hear.
