Lessons for children

Lessons which teach the fundamentals of music; essential skills and knowledge to prepare for more specialised study.

It’s fun, informal, friendly and designed to encourage a love of music based on play, creativity and curiosity. Once creative music-making is established, it will always be there  as a pleasure, not just another subject to study. I teach them first of all to discover their own music. They can study other people’s music later on, when their natural curiosity takes them there.

Along the way we’ll also learn basic piano, guitar and percussion technique, the fundamentals of music, a bit of reading and writing notation, songwriting and composing … and have a lot of fun ! Every child is different and I respond to each one differently.
