We offer piano lessons to learners of all ages, from beginners to advanced pupils. For the youngest children, lessons are 20 minutes long. As pupils progress, the lesson time will need to increase. Pupils who have reached grade 5 and above will usually require 45 minutes or an hour each week. Our tutors will use a range of teaching books, matched to the age and ability of the pupil. They will also take into account pupils’ personal musical tastes.
Many pupils like to mark their progress by taking exams. This gives a target to work towards but they are not compulsary. Usually our pupils are entered for ABRSM exams but we also are able to prepare pupils for Trinity exams and auditions. We offer pupils an opportunity to perform twice a year in our pupil and staff concerts. This is very useful, especially in the run up to an exam, in helping performance nerves.
