Lessons for teenagers and adults are designed to help students discover where their musical passions lie and what it is they would like to learn.  Whilst our teachers aim to make sure all students learn music they love, regardless of their age, we also recognise that older learners often have very specific reasons for wanting to take piano lessons.  We work with teenagers and adults who are taking music for GCSE/A level, are studying music at degree level, want to learn how to be more creative on the piano, want to learn more about music technology, want to pick up after stopping piano lessons years ago or who are complete beginners looking to start a new hobby.  Each of these students come with varying degrees of musical experience and knowledge, and have very different aims and ambitions they are looking to make a reality.  To facilitate this, we have a ‘modular’ curriculum that we use for older learners.  Students design their lessons in partnership with their teacher, choosing the focus that suits them best and including foundational skills (such as technique, aural and musical understanding) that help them to achieve their creative potential.  Whatever focus you choose, your teacher will guide you into greater confidence and competence as a musician.  Modules include:

Students are welcome to choose as many or as few topics as they wish to study.

Teenagers take part in a Performance class 6 times a year in place of their individual lesson.  This gives them the opportunity to perform in front of others in a safe environment, where they learn how to assess their own playing and give feedback to other performers.  Adult students have the opportunity to participate in Performance evenings a few times a year, where they can meet other adult learners and perform to each other 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 teenage students 18 and under.

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!

    Ange – 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!

  • 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!
