Introductory Lesson

An introductory lesson is easy to arrange. It is offered to all prospective students and without obligation to continue with further tuition. The introductory lesson is an important initial step in the decision to pursue tuition.

After the introductory lesson, the student will be much better informed as to what is involved and will have more knowledge of their chosen subject whether that be piano or singing. For an absolute beginner, a piano student will begin to read simple music notation, have a basic aural awareness, understand music and play basic pieces at the introductory lesson and a singer’s voice is usually improved at the end of the introductory session through an increased understanding of the basics of singing technique and musicianship.

It is understandable that a prospective student will be somewhat anxious and a little nervous at attending an introductory lesson, but as some of the student testimonials indicate on this website, every effort is made to put the student at ease and to help the student realise that learning music can be fun as well as challenging. A parent or guardian is welcome and encouraged to attend the introductory lesson with a young person. There is seating for one accompanying adult in the teaching studio.
