Learning the piano should be fun. It should give your child the chance to explore and grow their musical tastes as well as learning new technical skills. So while our lessons follow a base curriculum, developed through years of experience, they’re also shaped by the kind of music your child enjoys and the techniques they’re keen to learn.

They’ll get to experiment with a great mix of musical styles, from classical and jazz through to pop, rock and gospel. They’ll also learn music theory and develop aural skills, so they can better understand the make-up of the music they love and learn new songs by ear. It’s not all about sitting at a piano either – we use movement, games, singing and other instruments to explore new musical concepts.

We’ll also encourage your child to create their own music, teaching them to improvise, compose and arrange, both by themselves and with others. In fact, creative collaboration is a huge part of developing as a musician, and we make sure there are plenty of opportunities for all our students to learn, play and perform together. We run group lessons once every half term, hold summer workshops in things like music technology or playing the blues, offer regular opportunities to see local orchestras and bands perform and put on a variety of concerts, charity gigs and practice-a-thons throughout the year.

What it costs

There are lots of things that make our musical community very different from traditional piano lessons – including the way we organise our fees. Instead of a per-lesson fee we just have one yearly cost, which covers many of the group learning activities we do together as well as 38 individual lessons of 45 minutes each.

Our 2017/18 fees are £840.56 for the year, which you can either pay all in one go up-front or in monthly instalments of £76.41 between September and July.

If your child joins us part of the way through the academic year then we’ll work out the fees pro rata, and if they decide to stop lessons at any point we just ask for one month’s paid notice.
