Break through the limits of your singing voice Ö Have you wanted to do more with your voice?
With an effective vocal training program, you can learn everything you need Ö to control your breathing, to create a relaxed sound, to add strength and flexibility to your voice, to extend your range.
Have you ever noticed how some singers have an energy about them that you just love? You feel drawn to them, you just canít stop listening.
Singing is all about confidence Ö Itís about connecting with the song and communicating it to your audience effectively.
In our stage performance lessons we will teach you these communication skills step by step. You will learn acting, stage movement, microphone technique, and all the essentials of good singing.
Piano and Keyboard Lessons
Learning Classical Piano is a fine art, and needs to be approached with enthusiasm, dedication and love. The focus is practical, so that you can enjoy playing right from the start, while integrating all the skills to make you a competent pianist.
Classical Piano lessons focus on the finest piano music, technique, sight reading, aural training and music theory.
In Contemporary Piano lessons, you will learn your favourite rock or pop melodies. Bring me the song you want to learn, and Iíll show you how.
We start off learning to play chords, the building blocks of all music. Playing by ear is also a valuable skill Ė this involves listening to a melody and learning the layout of the piano so you can locate the note patterns effectively.
Junior Piano lessons (from age 4) - Let me introduce your child to the piano in a fun- filled, supportive environment. We learn the notes by using animal names (a- ant, b - butterfly, c- cat.) This is appealing for the child and gives them the tools to start playing pieces early on.
We have fun performing rhythms on the drum. We also learn to read the rhythm using notation.
In Keyboard/ Digital Piano lessons you will learn how to use the chord functions, beats and instrumental sounds on your keyboard to maximum effect. We start off learning to play chords, this will set you up to improvise, to compose your own music, or to play almost any rock or pop song.
Concerts and Exams
We believe that music is made to be shared, so we encourage you to take part in our popular Studio Concerts, the National Eisteddfod and the Trinity Guidhall Music Exams. Youíre also welcome to learn at our studio without taking part in concerts and exams.
Come and watch our students showcase their talents at our next concert on Wednesday 22 October. (See the events page for more info.)
Take part in our vibrant, fun Band Workshops. You will learn a 4- chord song together with a group of students. At the end of the session, we give a performance together as a group!
