Len Baker - Online Keyboard & Piano Tuition


About Me

In my den!
In my den!

Just who is Len Baker:

I've lived in Birstall, Leicester, UK, for all but 4 years of my life and originally worked in engineering. Myself and my sisters were fortunate that our parents realised the advantage of being able to play a musical instrument, consequently all 3 of us had piano lessons. I started playing the piano aged 10 and completed my examinations when I was 21. I've been teaching successfully for over 25 years from home and within schools, inc working as a Yamaha Music School teacher. 

I also play the saxophone and play in The Leicester Big Band. 

I have been married for 38 years and we have 4 children, one of whom is special needs and who we adopted from the Philippines back in 2005 when he was 8. We now also have 7 grandchildren and this picture is with the latest addition just after he arrived :) 

(If you are interested in knowing more about the projects we support in the Philippines please see the Links page).
