I am delighted to offer School-Holiday Courses for my younger students.
These courses are at a Preparatory level, suitable for children aged 6-12.

Booking is now open for the Easter break! Click here to book your place!

Preparatory Practical Courses

Book ten 20-minute lessons, or five 40-minute lessons, and we can complete all the work necessary to take the ABRSM Prep Test in either Piano or Flute. The exam can take place at the next available exam period, and term-time lessons between the course and the exam date can be used for learning new things as well as keeping the Prep Test material polished for performance.

Students should already have had some lessons with me before embarking on this course, usually at least a term (10-15 lessons), or longer for the very youngest. If you are not sure whether this course is suitable for your child, please do contact me before booking.

The course fee of £120 includes a copy of the Prep Test book, as well as the ABRSM examination entry fee. This offers parents a saving of around £40, when compared with term-time tuition.

Preparatory Theory Courses

For children around Prep Test level on their instrument (with or without having taken the exam), a Pre-Grade 1 Theory Course is on offer. Ten 30-minute lessons, or five 60-minute lessons allow us to follow a series of fun worksheets designed to introduce children to the basics of music theory. Students should be able to write confidently and legibly, and have good basic numeracy skills before taking this course. There is no formal exam at this level, but students will be given a certificate on successful completion of the course.

The course fee of £120 includes all learning materials, and represents a saving of around £50, compared with term-time tuition.
