We can also offer music lessons for you and your child…
Have you ever wanted to learn an instrument or how to sing but you don’t know where to begin? Why not learn alongside your child or on your own, so that you can help and support each other! Please contact us for more details.
Inclusive, Bespoke Approach to Tuition
At Discover and Be, we know how important it is to get to know our pupils and find out what makes them tick! We all have our own learning styles and interests; some children are happy and able to sit down for a 30 minute lesson and focus whilst others, particularly our younger pupils, prefer a more varied, game-based approach.
Whether your child wants to be a virtuoso pianist, or would like vocal lessons to sing like Ariana Grande, we can help! We offer bespoke lessons, tailored to meet the needs and requirements of your child, whatever his or her age and ability. Our tutors are able to train and prepare pupils who wish to embark on ABRSM graded exams. We are also happy to take on pupils who would prefer a less formal approach to learning an instrument.
Please note: ALL Discover and Be tutors are DBS/CRB checked; this is renewed on an annual basis.
How do I know when my child is old enough to learn an instrument?
This chiefly depends on the instrument and also on the child. For example, we are happy to teach piano to pupils as young as 5 years old as long as parents are aware that lessons need to be shorter (we recommend 20 minutes), varied and largely game-based. Our approach to lessons will depend chiefly on how long your child is able to concentrate for a sustained period of time. As pupils get older, concentration levels increase. We do ask that all pupils, regardless of age, are encouraged by parents to play and explore their instrument regularly. Tutors will recommend the amount of practice time needed and note down practice points in your child’s practice diaries. Please contact us if you have any questions.
How do the lessons work?
The first lesson will involve tutor and pupil spending time getting to know one another. The tutor will then decide what the most appropriate material and music books are for your child.
How do I know which music books to buy?
Our tutors have a great deal of experience in choosing the right music books needed for each child. All new materials are supplied during the lessons. The tutors will then agree the purchase of the books and the cost will be added to the next invoice.
How will I know how my child’s music lessons are progressing?
Our teachers welcome contact from parents when it comes to their child's lessons. If you have any questions at all regarding tuition and/or your child’s learning, please do not hesitate to email your tutor. Feedback will also be provided in the practice diaries and practice points for parents as well as verbal feedback for those pupils who have lessons at home. We also encourage parents to add comments to the practice diary as often as possible. This helps the teachers understand how the home practice is going.
