One-on-One Coaching Lessons

We provide coaching lessons for students, from Elementary level to Advanced level.

All our lessons are part of a Graded syllabus, with students assessed on each Grade, and Certificates awarded once the student has achieved the required level of musicianship on their instrument.

There are no extra charges for sitting the assessments.

Lessons are structured to lead the student through a sound and thorough development approach, with each lesson comprising a variety of music and a balance between technique exercises and tunes.

Music Knowledge & Theory

Students are also taught to read music and provided with regular sessions on musical knowledge, terms, signs, keys, rhythm, to develop a broad understanding of music.

Our Objectives

We are committed to providing a thorough platform for students studying clarinet and/or saxophone, in order to prepare them for future involvement in Band and Orchestral groups.

We also encourage our students to continue with their music into adult life, and gain real enjoyment and satisfaction from their musical skills and knowledge.

Lesson Structure and Contents

The lessons follow our Graded syllabus closely and are broken into several sections:

  1. Playing the instrument about 70% of the time
  2. Musical Knowledge about 15% of the time
  3. Musicianship about 15% of the time

Students are required to purchase a tuition book recommended by the coach.

Students also receive Practice plans that are required to be followed by the student.
