We understand the idea of "try before you buy" or testing the waters before getting in the pool. It's the general way of the world to see if its right for you before you commit. The thing is, when it comes to learning music the commitment is already there from the moment you decided to start. It isn't and shouldn't be forced - it's your desire.
What Do I Need?
- An instrument - having your own instrument is essential to learning music. It is not enough to have access to your instrument just once a week. Practice, Practice, Practice - This is really important. In order to really see the 'fruits of your labour' practising at home is very important. At the end of every lesson, your teacher will give you homework. Doing this work will make your musical journey a much more fruitful one As a beginner you really don't have to break the bank so a basic instrument - maybe second-hand - that is correctly sized for you will do fine. Speak to us about our Instrument Service.
- A Manuscript Book and Pencil - These are provided to you as part of our welcome pack. We feel that an important part of learning to play an instrument is learning to understand music. Although there is a seperate more in debt class for Music Theory, all our classes include some level of theory as well as the practical side. Music is a language. So be ready to learn how to speak it!
- Music Text Books - We will be using text books for music lessons. These books are ordered for you. There is a cost for the books. You can either order the books yourself or we can do it for you and you pay for it at cost. For grading, each examination board have their own requirements of books. Again, these can be obtained directly or we can order them for you by request.
