Essential information

Before commencing regular lessons students need to own or have access to their chosen instrument as regular practice at home is essential for musical development.


If you have not yet chosen an instrument and would like guidance before purchasing please feel free to contact us for advice.


Piano

One-to-one piano lessons are offered from the age of 6 upwards , we use a range of different course books depending on the student. For the younger learner we use CD backing tracks with certain songs/books thus creating a fun environment whilst at the same time introducing playing with accompaniment. We have several experienced qualified teachers in this discipline, and all are happy to give advice and tailor your lessons to meet your own specific style whether it is classical or pop.


Keyboard and Organ

Our flexible approach to teaching means courses are structured to suit your ability to learn. If you choose to learn the keyboard, you have the option either to bring your own and receive guidance on its use, or to use one of the schools. With just one lesson a week and practice in your own home, you will be amazed how quickly you progress and play many well-known tunes! Keyboard lessons are offered either as one-to-one with the teacher or in small groups, the minimum age requirement for both is 6 years old. Group learning is very successful and many students’ progress to a high standard of playing, these lessons also offer excellent value being slightly cheaper in price.


Recorder

For parents of younger children wishing to try a wind instrument, the descant recorder is ideal. Tuition is available on a one-to-one basis from the age of 6 years, and for the minimum outlay a child can experience professional tuition and discover whether they are ready for regular practice. With many of the finger positions principally the same as other woodwind instruments, such as the flute and saxophone, the recorder provides a good foundation for the younger student before they are able to cope with a larger instrument.  


Flute

Learning the flute is the natural progression for children from the recorder and the minimum age required for this next step varies depending on the student. Adults are also welcome and lessons are taught either on a one-to-one basis or in small groups. As the flute is not considered a solo instrument, duets with the teacher and piano accompanied playing is introduced early on in the lessons. There is also the opportunity to play with other students at the Perfect Notes concerts.  


Clarinet

We offer clarinet lessons to both children and adults, 8 years old being the minimum age for a trial lesson. As with other instruments, no previous musical knowledge is assumed and lessons are taught either on a one-to-one basis or in small groups. Ensemble playing is encouraged through playing duets, piano accompanied pieces and concerts.



Violin

Violin lessons are offered from the age of 6 upwards as children can start on a smaller size instrument. Adults are most welcome as beginners or improvers and all lessons are taught on a one-to-one basis. We use different course books depending on the age of the student.




Guitar

Our experienced guitar teachers are able to offer a variety of different styles of playing. These include electric through to classical and lessons will be tailored to suit the students’ particular requirements. For younger children wishing to learn there are half size instruments available in music shops, and of course adults are welcome as beginners or improvers. Lessons are taught either on a one-to-one basis or alternatively it is possible to learn in small groups or with friends


Singing

We are able to offer a complete range of singing styles from classical to pop and offer tuition and guidance on matters such as articulation, range, breathing technique and posture. As with all subjects taught at this music school, we welcome both children and adults.  In the lesson a piano, guitar or backing track on a CD may be used to accompany the singer. Our concerts provide students with an opportunity to perform and sing in front of an audience and examinations maybe taken when a suitable standard is reached.
