What our students say…

We are dedicated to making sure our students enjoy their lessons and feel proud of their progress

“I enjoy the variety, from playing pieces, sight reading practice and theory. I also like playing duets with Chelsea and learning how to improvise.”
“Since starting lessons in September 2015, I passed Grade 1 Piano with a Distinction in November 2015 and passed Grade 2 Music Theory with a Distinction in March 2016. I am now awaiting a date for my Grade 2 Piano in June 2016. My Piano playing has improved so much, I am much more confident and am slightly happier to play to other people!”
“Chelsea is very patient and lets you try to play no matter how slowly or with however many mistakes. We then go back over and Chelsea explains what was good and what to look out for.”
