          Why Private Lessons?

          Private individual lessons are strongly recommended for preschool kids rather than group lessons because the difference between students in communication and confidence can be too wide. Individually, we are able to tailor lessons towards maximising the innate development skills of each student by concentrating not only on celebrating results achieved but looking ahead towards their future development.

          We strive to ensure that our students are competent in the following;

          • He can read notes from middle C – G in treble clef.
          • He can clap rhythms with minims, crotchets, quavers and crotchet rests.
          • His finger forms are very good
          • He can play the piano with reading the music.
          • He is still developing the confidence to speak out and perform in front of the teacher in lessons
          • Our next challenge will be acquiring this performance confidence in independent playing.

          • She can read notes from middle C- G in treble clef and has started learning of reading notes in bass clef.
          • Initially she was too shy to sing and answer teacher’s questions when starting her lesson, however a half year later she sings in a loud voice to teacher’s playing and repeats teacher’s singing.
          • Her weakness is a finger form as her fingers are too stiff but she is trying to relax her fingers to get them in a right form.
          • She can improve this by exercising her fingers on the piano and by reminding herself to begin by setting the form of her fingers before playing.

          • His reading skill is firm as he can sing with solfa (note names) if the notes are C-G in treble and F-C in bass clef.
          • His finger forms are very good so that he can read music and play the piano confidently without looking at his hands.
          • He can write notes with semibreves on to stave.
          • His aural skill has been developing and he can recognise and distinguish melodies and rhythms that he hears.
          • Our next challenge will be learning of C-G in bass clef to read and play, and mastering some easy pieces to play that he knows to gain more confidence and excitement in his independent playing.
