Lessons


Regardless of instrument, here are some of the key musical areas we'll be focusing on:

  • Practical

    Learning how to use your instrument to make music.

  • Sight Reading

    A vastly under appreciated skill, sight reading is taught from day one in a fun and engaging manner.

  • Practicing

    Working on techniques for how to learn and improve outside of the lesson, a life skill that is beneficial for any area of learning.

  • Performance

    Preparing for a performance, pre-concert planning, how to introduce a piece, how to build a program/setlist, even advice on receiving applause!

  • Aural Training

    Listening skills such as identifying rhythm, pitch, timbre and musical memory are developed and continuously pushed.

  • Musical Exposure

    In-class listening sessions, involving learning to recognise and identify instruments, appreciate the differences between musical periods, and building up an awareness of composers throughout history.
