Teaching

We firmly believe that music should be a fun and inspiring experience regardless of a student’s level.  We offer a patient and encouraging style of learning that builds on the student’s previous and natural knowledge and provides the necessary tools for success.  Our teaching is not exam led, we tailor each lesson to the needs of the students; allowing students to take ownership of their learning and the style they wish to play.  However, exams can be taken if desired.
These lessons can be on-going, occasional or a short series depending on what is required.

What we offer:

  • Learning in a friendly, relaxed environment; the essential foundation for success.
  • We aim to nurture a passion for music making through our own love of music.
  • We hope to develop a student’s musicianship through curiosity and motivation
  • We always aim to promote ensemble skills through the use of duets etc
