When is tuition available?
We usually offer lessons for 33 weeks of the year and at present are giving over 55 hours of tuition a week to 100 students aged between 7 and 70.
Dates and Times of Tuition
Lessons are available for 20 minutes, 30 minutes, 45 minutes and an hour.
It is recommended that pupils of approximately Grade 5 standard and higher should consider having lessons of at least 45 minutes in length to enable the teacher to concentrate on more advanced aspects of technique.
It is possible to sign up for a short series of lessons but most people anticipate having 33 to 36 lessons in each academic year (September to July). If you wish to receive aural tuition and accompaniment practice for an examination, we can provide lessons on a short term basis.
Lessons are not normally given during school holidays. However, we may be able to arrange occasional lessons throughout school holiday periods given exceptional circumstances. The majority of lessons take place between 3.30 and 9.00pm on weekdays, although it may be possible to provide lessons on a Saturday morning subject to demand.
Ask if you have any particular requirements or suggestions and we will do our best to accommodate you.
