The things I learned from my experience in music are discipline, perseverance, dependability, composure and courage… Not a bad preparation for the real world - Gregory Anrig, President, Educational Testing Service of America

Additional Information for parents of those learning instruments
It is vital that your child has their own instrument to practice with at home. If you need advice on choosing and buying an instrument, then please ask the music school staff.
Each student will be asked to buy a teaching book which will be used as the basis for learning. This must be brought to lessons each week. Details of teaching materials can be obtained from music school staff. Students must also bring a copy book to lessons each week
Each student MUST come to each class with a small copy book. This book will be used by the teacher to record practice for the coming week. It is vital that your child practices their chosen instrument on a regular basis. When a child starts learning an instrument we recommend that you encourage them to practice at least five times a week for between 5 and 20 mins at a time, depending on age and stage of development. This regular practice will ensure that they can make the most of their lesson time each week. Please do not encourage your child to play for hours at a time as this may cause physical difficulties and pain when starting out.
