Studio Philosophy

> Making music is fun and everyone can enjoy the learning process and experience its rewards.
> We treat all students with care and patience, and respect their individual taste and aspirations.
> We provide a warm and safe learning environment.
> We teach all students to be independent learners, so that they understand what they are doing, and can function away from the lesson. We do not engage in 'parrot' learning at this studio.
> As early as possible we will facilitate an understanding of the process of learning, and encourage students to take pride and ownership of their progress. Intrinsic motivation and recognition is the best reward.
>

We teach students to make music, not just press the right keys.

> We work towards agreed goals.
> Playing the piano well is not just about the instrument, we encourage musical learning of all sorts of genres and varied musical experience.
