“We should not only use the brains we have but all that we can borrow.” Woodrow Wilson

We believe learning is easier (and more fun!) when we do it together.  Alongside individual lessons we provide students with many opportunities to build relationships together, allowing them to learn from and with each other.

CCPT Concerts

Students have the opportunity to perform in two school concerts each year, one at Christmas and one in the summer.  These are a great opportunity for students to show off to their family all the hard work they have put in to learning the piano.  The Summer Concert is also filmed and students have the opportunity to purchase copies as a memento.

Group Lessons

Once every half term we run group lessons instead of individual lessons. In these groups, students spend time revising musical concepts, working on musicianship skills, learning about different musical styles and genres and performing to each other.  There are a number of benefits from students having regular group lessons:

Practice-a-thon

Each year our primary school-aged students support the work of CLIC Sargent by taking part in their nation-wide Practice-a-thon.   Students ask family and friends to sponsor them to play the piano for a set number of minutes every day.  To date CCPT students have raised over £1300 to help the work CLIC Sargent do with children and young people suffering from cancer.

Testimonials

  • As the parent of a child who had never played piano before, I found the teacher to be delightful and patient and their lessons to be engaging and at an appropriate level for my daughter.  The fact that the main emphasis of CCPT appears to be on engaging the student and not about their ability level makes it the perfect environment to learn in!

  • I like going to music because it makes me happy and I like learning the songs.

    Benjamin – Aged 5
  • We have seen Jordan grow in confidence over the past year and the group nights as well as the concerts have played a huge part in stretching him and building up his self belief and confidence.  This was noticeable over the festive period when at church Jordan played 2nd keys for our carol service in front of a packed house.  This he wouldn’t have done without your help over the past year so thank you and keep up the good work!

    John – Parent
  • Friends and family are really impressed with what and how they learn, as some of the lessons they talk about are just about working through a book and learning each piece one at a time. Amrit and Gurjeevan love telling everyone about their fun lessons and talk about their compositions with pride!  I cannot thank you enough for all your time and attention to the two of them.  It has given them both so much confidence in themselves and they are so proud of what they are achieving.  As parents, we couldn’t be happier.

  • The Musical Discoveries lessons are fantastic: pacy, fun and engaging.  It’s been great to see my daughter’s singing confidence grow.

    Parent
  • A fun way to learn all about music.  The children sing, dance and play different instruments all in a relaxed and friendly environment.  After the lessons none of the children are in a rush to go home!
