Musicians at Grade 8 level + who want to improve their ability to play freely and creatively. This class focuses on increasing aural awareness and aural skills to give the student the ability to improvise, build chords, arrange popular pieces with your own harmonies, play by ear, transpose etc.
Ages 10+. Easier to play, lighter and more controlled than the traditional flute. It is also more intricate and has more dynamic variations than the traditional flute. There’s a bit of stretching involved to reach the holes and lung capacity is required which is why the age is set at 10 years, although depending on the height and strength of the student we may take younger. We have had an 8 year old flute student. A good start would be to learn the tin whistle first although there is slightly different finger work. Available in group classes or private lessons.

Ages 9+ The Saxophone shares many technical traits of the Clarinet but, crucially, has a different embouchure. As with the Clarinet, once tone production is well practiced and secured rapid progress can be made. Due to the weight of the instrument 9-10 years of age is usually the best time to start.
