Our aim is to produce well-rounded musicians who can engage with music in a variety of settings, whether as a listener, composer, performer or collaborator. In order to achieve this we work from a balanced curriculum, developed through years of experience, which gives students opportunities to:
We understand that all children are individuals and learn in different ways. We also understand that for most children sitting still at the piano for half an hour is a difficult thing to do! One of the things we love most about piano teaching is the freedom we have to get to know our students as individuals and plan our lessons according to their unique needs. We adopt a multi-sensory approach in our teaching, using games, singing, movement, floor activities and other instruments to explore musical concepts. Music is carefully chosen to suit the tastes of each child and to give them a varied ‘musical diet’. As well as learning famous and well-loved Classical piano pieces, students will learn jazz, blues, pop and many other styles.
Each half term students take part in group lessons instead of their individual lessons. These groups are a wonderful opportunity to work on musicianship skills, revise concepts learnt during the term and practice performing in a safe environment.
How to arrange lessons
If you are interested in taking piano lessons with us please feel free to get in touch via phone or email. An initial phone conversation is necessary to arrange a short, no obligation consultation session. This consultation is free of charge and will allow you to meet your teacher and talk in more detail about lessons before you make a final decision. A parent is required to attend these sessions for all students 18 and under.
