Inside a Group Singing Lesson


Why Group lessons?

  • we like to start our singing students with group lessons
  • they are fun, interactive and energising for student and teacher.
  • students learn to play and sing in time, learn harmonies and get the experience of playing in a group.
  • new friendships are formed whilst learning a new skill.
  • recitals, concerts and community performances can be fun in a group.

Inside a Private Singing Lesson

Why Private lessons?

  • we like to start our guitar students on private lessons unless we can start a group of beginners at the same time.
  • Once a student is established with their playing, they can move onto an already established group.
  • private lesson students can learn at their own pace
  • play songs and styles that are specific to their own taste.
