Piano Courses

 

Boy excited about piano lessons

Individual and group lessons are available for piano and keyboard for all ages and levels.  Please note there may be more payment options available on request, for example half-termly instalments.

The following course information gives you an idea of how the groups work:

Piano Foundation Course

For age groups 6-8, 9-16, 17+

One-hour weekly lessons for small groups. Suitable for beginners this course assumes no musical knowledge and therefore covers all the basics. It will bring these into a crystal-clear understanding, creating a strong foundation on which to build. The small class format (3 to 6 people) allows fun interaction between the teacher and students, yet also between the students who can identify with the questions and interests of each other. This accelerates learning far more than an individual lesson normally allows at this level, and also builds confidence. Key Elements

  • Play a piece from the very first lesson!
  • Learn how to read music
  • Discover how melody, rhythm and harmony work
  • A flexible approach – play your favourite music!
  • Learn to appreciate a range of musical styles
  • Option to take the ABRSM ‘prep test’

Cost: 3 separate instalments (1 per term) of £150, payable in advance of the term start date. Each module is 10 weeks and the lesson time is 1 hour. Top-up lessons may be available out of our term-time – simply ask for details.

For age groups 6-8, 9-16, 17+

Building on the foundation course knowledge and skills, this one-year course is suitable for anyone who has a good understanding of the basics and can play up to about grade 1 level. More challenging pieces, new keys and musical concepts are introduced on this course. Key Elements
