All music lessons are private and tailored to each pupil to suit their musical ability, style and pace of learning. Technical musical skills, practical and theory are all covered. Concerts are organised and those wishing to perform in public have the chance to demonstrate their new musical talent. Both practical and theory examinations are available.
