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.
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.
JUNIOR MUSIC COURSES
4 - 5 year olds
Our Junior Music Course is the best possible introduction that a young child can have to the world of music. Open to children starting between the ages of 4 and 5, it offers them a unique chance to make music during a critical period in their development. The benefits in terms of their physical, emotional, social and intellectual development are immense.
Junior Musical Course classes are taught in groups of up to eight children. By making music together, the confidence and self-esteem of the child gets a huge boost. Many parents report that their children's listening and social skills are considerably enhanced.
To maintain the concentration and motivation of a young child for each one hour lesson, the teacher will have prepared at least fifteen different activities, blending concentration, relaxation, music games, listening, singing and playing. As a parent, you are actively encouraged to join your child in the classroom and share the experience!
