8 years to Adult
Our courses are ideal for those of all ages who want to learn the piano in an imaginative and supportive atmosphere.
Working in a group of up to eight, pupils have the additional advantage of being able to play by ear as well as reading
music in a more formal and traditional way as lessons progress. Technique is built up solidly from week
to week and pupils normally take a grade exam annually while also being able to perform in public several times a year.
This successful course is for both children and adults. It attracts many 'returners' who used to learn and want to come back to study in a more informal, stress-free environment. As well as reading and playing music it also focuses on improvisation, accompaniment and arranging music for pleasure. Exams are optional but follow a fully accredited
Trinity College London exam syllabus and will take the student from beginner to Grade 8 and beyond.
Junior Piano Courses
6-7 years old
Our Junior piano courses provide a fun and stimulating environment in which children can enjoy making
music on a piano. It is open to beginners aged between six and seven and is designed to
build a strong foundation for further piano study.
At the age of six, a child's attention span has started to lengthen and they can stay focused for longer.
We believe that a fun approach to learning music is important. We achieve this through listening, singing
and reading activities.
Course material consists of a series of themed text books with a visually striking
cartoon-style presentation designed to appeal to children of this age. An examination syllabus is available
for the course, which leads to a fully accredited Trinity College London qualification.
