Learning to play an instrument provides a fundamental aspect for lifelong skills, fulfilling dreams and enabling the ability to appreciate music. As teachers our ultimate goal is to give joy and fun through music for persons of all ages. An understanding how music pervades and influences our perception of our surroundings is a key element in being able to create music for our well-being.
For young students goals such as exams, ABRSM and Trinity College, give incentives to strive towards excellence, and provide a solid foundation enabling essential technical skills. To assist the preparation, recitals give students opportunities to show their work in a familiar setting. Participation in chamber music and orchestras is strongly encouraged.
As well, many adults wishing to refresh their knowledge or even to take the opportunity to learn something entirely new, appreciate having guidance to broaden their outlook.
