Our Mission is:
- to give each piano learner the enjoyment of making music
- to choose a repertoire according to the learner’s ability, interest and personality
- to develop a solid technique
- to give learners the opportunity of participating in ensemble playing
Learners from Grade One to Grade Seven may receive piano tuition. Learners who are interested in piano tuition should complete applications forms at the office. Assessment of new applications is necessary before tuition can commence. Should our quota of learners be full, your child’s name will be placed on a waiting list. Final acceptance will only be decided upon after a trial period of six months. Having a piano at home is also an important requirement before any learner can start with lessons.
During practical lessons, learners receive tuition in technical work, studies and pieces. Aspects such as sight-reading and aural training also form an integral part of lessons.
Beginners receive theory tuition during lessons. It is advisable for learners from a Theory GRADE 1 level to join a group for theory tuition. Teachers will advise learners in this regard. Participation in external examinations (Unisa, Royal Schools and Trinity College), Eisteddfod, music competitions and other concerts is strongly recommended. Educators will use their discretion in this regard.
Lesson options: 25 minutes (once or twice a week)
Educators: Janette Hartshorne, Florence Stassen, Nelmarie Strydom, Adri van Wyk and Eric Gerber.
