Why are we different

  • We offer the highest grade of musical education, from teaching staff who are not only talented musicians in their own right, but also trained to teach, regularly monitored and who undergo ongoing professional development training at Yamaha HQ.
  • We provide each student with a one hour, group lesson on the instrument of choice, once per week for 44 weeks of the year, or provide students learning individually with a half hour lesson, once per week/fortnight for 44/22 weeks of the year.
  • We ensure that all our staff have enhanced DBS (CRB) clearance. Certification is available to view outside our studios.
  • We offer an optional, accredited examination syllabus, with examinations taking place on site 2/3 times per annum.
  • We facilitate learning with state~of~the art instruments in clean, comfortable, designated studios.
  • We encourage every student with merits for practice and Certificates and Prizes for collecting merits.
  • We offer a clean, comfortable waiting room for students and parents alike.
  • We offer eight weeks holiday (plus Bank Holidays) every year and display a full school calendar on our website, as well as in school.
  • We provide, by email, lesson notes to any student who is unable to attend his/her usual class, for whatever reason.
  • We will produce a printed invoice for each student at the end of every month or term (depending on which period is chosen for payment) ready for payment at the start of the next session
