Private Music Lessons

All lessons incorporate learning with improvisation, composition, aural skills, performance and written music for those over 5-years old.

Each lesson is varied and even though there is a lesson plan, it is sometimes more productive to react spontaneously with the child creating music from what he/she is telling me. All ages have my help to compose their own tunes/rhyming songs and these may be linked to a school activity or possibly something which may have inspired them!

To add to the fun of learning and playing music, many of the tunes will be explored using a variety of instruments.

There is always some practise for the child to do at home and piano exams (ABRSM) may be taken if the child so wishes.

3-week trials are also available for each and every new pupil.

General music lessons for children (from 5 yrs)
