The pupils are paired depending on instrument and ability and are reviewed every five lessons to ensure that pupils are receiving the appropriate tuition. Lessons are rotated weekly to avoid pupils missing the same classroom lesson every week.

Will my child be able to take exams?

Music Academy for Schools encourage pupils to work towards and take music exams, however they are not essential if the pupil does not want to. Our teachers work to the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music syllabus and believe that music exams are a great way of gaining a sense of achievement. Guitarists work to the Rock School syllabus.

A variety of musical ensembles, run by our music tutors are available and pupils are encouraged to join them. These include: Wind Band, Brass Band, Swing Band, Music Theatre Group and a range of smaller ensembles. Being part of a group provides a lot of fun as well as performing experience.

Are the teachers specialised in the instrument they are teaching?
