Available in different formats to suit all abilities and ages, the classes include fun practice sessions for kids,  ABRSM and TRINITY mock exams, intensive piano courses and workshops in jazz, piano duet and music theory.

Sight Reading Intensive Courses

Sight Reading is one of the main fears all students have when facing a graded piano exam. It is also one of the hardest tests where to succeed and yet pupils get very stressed about it. Sight Reading is a skill some people really struggle with. However, bearing some tips in mind, knowing the most frenquent mistakes and being aware of the exceptions can be a relief before the big day comes.

ABRSM and Trinity Mock Exams

The date of your exam is getting closer and you are practising hard. You are trying your best to succeed but the actual situation makes you feel anxious and unconfident. Playing for an unknown person on an unfamiliar instrument are some of the factors that might affect your performance. Whether you are preparing a piano or music theory exam, ABRSM and Trinity Mock Exams are the best opportunity to recreate the big day.

A warm-up room will be provided prior to the piano exam simulation. Then a different piano teacher will asses your performance and will write a feedback sheet of your pieces, scales and supporting tests.

If you are taking the music theory mock exam, a one-to-one tutorial will be given to correct and comment the answers of your exam paper.

Music Theory Courses

Theory is the basis of musical language and the vehicle to truly understand how music works.

Focusing only on practising an instrument is great but the pieces will inevitably get harder and lots of new information will begin showing up on the scores.

Therefore, understanding the elements of composition and music theory can give an answer to most of the questions students may have at any point of the learning process.

The only problem is that many times there is not enough time to work on theory during the weekly piano lessons. (And this will get serious if we mention that Grade 5 theory is compulsory!)

We have the solution: sign up for our Music Theory Workshop and enhance your knowledge about music.

Kids Practice Plan

The school break is approaching and your kids will be on vacation. They will have been working hard and would deserve a break however, sometimes holidays feel too long and they get bored.

Summer and half terms are the best time for fun and relaxation, to spend more time with family and friends. But getting your kids away from the piano may not be a great idea. They might lose the skills that took them a long time to achieve.

Learning how to play an instrument is not only about attending the lessons, but also about the commitment of regular practice. Do not let the summer or half term make them fall out of the habit and reinforce all the concepts they have learnt during their weekly lessons.

Try out our Kids Practice Plan and let them create a routine of practice with one-to-one coaching. Your children will progress more and will be ahead for the next term!

Jazz Courses

Improvisation is the way to find your individual expression and own musicality. Jazz not only helps players visualize harmony better but also finding out patterns, breaking down structures and maximizing their sight reading skills.

Regardless of the genre and level, improvisation should be part of the musical education. It does not matter whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced classically trained musician; overcoming the fear of improvising can get you beyond any self-doubt and incorporate more innovative ideas into your playing.

Sign up for our jazz workshop and learn the basic principles of jazz music, how to properly build and notate chords and play your favourite tunes.

Piano Duet Workshop

A Piano Duet is a chamber music ensemble formed by two people playing on the same piano. When two players share the same instrument, performing becomes excellent teamwork. Based on their mutual support, the couple’s trust will build strong confidence on stage.

In this workshop, each individual will learn how to give and receive feedback, how to discuss different musical ideas and how to find out the way to achieve them together.

Students will learn to respect their partner’s opinion and to collaborate together by sharing the leadership of the ensemble. It will be a great opportunity for socializing but students would also need to commit to be responsible and prepared for each session.

Piano Duet is the perfect combination of fun and hard work!
