8:30 am - 12:30 pm
KEYBOARD CLASSES have filled. Please enquire at the office about a waiting list.
After School Tutor is Michael Greenwood
Our keyboard lessons provide a good introduction to learning and reading western musical notation. Keyboard lessons also provide a suitable background for those who wish to advance to piano lessons- perhaps private tuition or more concentrated one on one lessons post intermediate school. A keyboard sounds like the piano, but lacks its size and weight. You are advised to purchase a touch sensitive keyboard.
After School Lessons: 30 minutes in length (Small group of 3)
Class Times: Please check with the school supervisor as to which days and times are available.
Saturday Lessons: Each lesson is 45 minutes in length with a maximum of 6 students

Level 1 and 2 classes are available early morning (8.30, 9.15), mid morning (10.15, 11.00) or late morning (11.45)
Level 3 and 4 classes please check with the school supervisor for specific times as this will depend on numbers enrolled.
Students will need to provide their own keyboard and a set of headphones for lessons.
Headphones are for sale at the music school office.
We recommend a 61 note keyboard (5 and a half octaves) with touch response.
The school is unable to hire keyboards. Please speak to the school supervisor who can advise in the purchase of an instrument.
