Our piano lessons are tailored to the needs of each individual student and include a wide range of activities.
Lessons for preschool children (aged 3-4 years) are not instrument specific but instead focused on having fun with music. A typical lesson would include songs, rhythm exercises and games which all explore the piano as well as percussion instruments. At HMMT we use either the Wunderkeys Preschool series or the Poco Piano series, depending on the preferences of the child.
For young beginners (4+) we use Pauline Hall's Tunes for Ten Fingers series, progressing onto the more advanced Oxford Piano Time books. Alongside these we use a selection of resources including worksheets, games and puzzles.
Students working through ABRSM, Trinity Guildhall and/or SQA exams will be guided through all aspects of those exams processes. This includes help with sight-reading excerpts and preparation for aural tests.
Our lessons are not just for children...
Have you always wanted to learn an instrument but never got round to it?
Or maybe you would like to get back into playing after a long time?
Many of our students are young professionals, working parents or are retired.
It's never too late to try!
