Our dream is to see the creative arts redeemed through quality education that develops the potential of every student within a nurturing, creative environment.

We aim to facilitate a more holistic and balanced method of teaching people to explore their God-given creativity. Our experienced teachers have realised that when teaching is primarily focused on examinations the joy, musicianship and listening abilities of students sadly take a back seat.

 

Our goal is to encourage students to explore their understanding of what being creative means within their particular discipline.

What we offer

Keyboard

Learn easy-to-play songs, some theory as well as how to improvise and play by ear. Classes range from basic to intermediate levels.

Guitar/Bass

Learn chords, and various techniques designed to make playing the guitar easy. A catalogue of songs is also made available.

Drums

Learn drumming patterns and techniques and how to apply them to songs.

(Classes range from basic to advanced levels, unless otherwise indicated.)

Vocals

Be coached through a 'gym programme' that will improve your voice, sound production and breathing techniques. Extend the repertoire of songs that you enjoy singing.

Classical Instruments

We offer tuition in a variety of classical instruments such as piano, violin, cello, flute and classical guitar. Contact us if your instrument of choice has not been listed to see if we can arrange lessons for you.

Conducting

Apart from lessons given in conducting, master classes are also offered. Practical sessions with orchestras and choirs are part of the curriculum.
