Learn a song

Most people are inspired to learn an instrument because of the music they listen to, or because they saw a great band play live.

Whatever style a student is into, or whatever level their playing is at, they usually find it most enjoyable to play music they know. The aim is for students to enjoy playing since they will develop more quickly due to practising more regularly, and will continue playing for longer while they find it interesting.

Lessons are based around learning songs as much as possible. Songs are taken from styles which suit students’ tastes and are introduced in a developmental way so that new techniques and increased levels of difficulty improve playing.

Sometimes exercises are covered to support techniques used in songs, and theory elements introduced to help explain songs and increase musical understanding.
