Teachers

All of our teachers are experienced teachers and performers and will use a variety of approaches to ensure that your child is enjoying their learning experience. This means that they will want to come to lessons and learn. It is also important that both teachers, parents and students are all on the same page in terms of goals eg to work towards graded exams, to perform in a concert or anything else that you may want to work towards.
