What will I learn from the Seasonal Course?

Technical courses are structured in a progressive manner based on achieving the skills necessary to take the ABRSM exams from Grade 1 up to Diploma.  However, the school’s goal for our students is not solely exam-based.  We hope to develop the musical talent of our students so that they can play a wide repertoire of music at the end of each level and achieve a true understanding and appreciation for their instrument of choice.

Ensemble courses are designed for students who want to diversify their skills from a soloist into the pleasure of playing as part of a team. Ensemble training will be started from Elementary IV to Diploma level.

At the end of each term, students from all levels are gathered for a Seasonal Concert Practice so that they have a chance to perform and receive feedback from musicians and instructors.

Each year, a public concert is held where all students have the opportunity to showcase their accomplishments and results for that year’s hard work.
