Classes take place in Chelston, Rawlyn Road. It is also possible to teach at your place within reasonable travelling distance.
Lessons can be arranged to suit you, although the standard format is one 30 minute lesson per week during school terms. Both one-on-one and shared (discounted) lessons (a group of 2 students) are available. Shared lessons are especially great for young children, friends who want to learn together, or siblings. We are able to match students of the same level if you prefer shared lesson. Sharing a lesson with a friend helps the student to relax and enjoy the whole process of learning and producing music.
What you will learn:
From Mozart to Beatles – you can choose between classical piano lessons or popular piano lessons or their combination. It is also possible to teach only by ear if you decide not to learn to read notes, although this is advised only for more mature students. All young students will be taught to read music and have fun while they do! Whether you want to play for pleasure or prepare for ABRSM exams, lessons will be tailored to your needs.
Tuition fees and payment options:
First lesson is given free of charge. Following lessons cost £14 for one-on-one or £8/student for shared lesson (group of 2 students). Lessons are prepaid for 5 lessons at a time.
Substitute lessons: cancel your prepaid lesson at least 24 hours in advance through a text message, call or an email and a substitute lesson can be arranged. Maximum of 2 substitute lessons per term.
