''Our son has piano and guitar lessons weekly, and we are thrilled
with the progress he is making, as well as how much he enjoys learning both of
these instruments. His tutors have the balance right between encouragement and
discipline, in order to help him achieve his best. We are delighted with this
academy, and our next son is about to start lessons next term because he wants
to do what he sees his big brother doing!''

''My 5 year old son seems to be enjoying his
piano lessons and is making really good progress. The staff is very warm and
the kids work hard for them. The place has a lovely atmosphere - very open and
encouraging. The performance afternoons are a great way of getting the kids

''My 5 year old son really looks forward to 'Music for the Little
Ones'. He sings the songs all week. I have been impressed at how the basic
music concepts are being taught - for example galloping round the room and
walking slowly for rhythm and drawing a line going up and down to illustrate
pitch. My son loves the lessons so much.''
