How do lessons work?
Most lessons are half an hour long. This provides enough time to revise prior work and take in new information or techniques for later practice. Longer sessions are helpful when:
- Practice and revision of music or academic work at home is limited
- Students have progressed beyond an introductory level / preparing for recital or exams
How are lessons structured?
Music lessons contain different types of practical and theoretical components. The amount of theory covered in lessons will depend on each individual student, and factors such as:
- Instrument of choice
- Personal goals
- Interest in exams now or at a future time
Academic lessons are designed to assist you to feel confident with your immediate subject material, whether that’s classwork, homework or assessment. This may require going over previous content that has been missed or rushed over. Once confidence has been attained, the lessons focus on helping you develop overall mastery of your subject.
