“WE NEED 30 MINUTES OF YOUR TIME EVERY WEEK, TO GET YOUR GRADES”

We facilitate tuition of the Trinity College London, Modern Music syllabus, which includes material in most popular music styles including Rock, Pop, Blues, Hip Hop, R&B for KEYBOARD, GUITAR, BASS GUITAR, DRUM KIT AND VOCALS.

The syllabus is generally less theory orientated but very practical in it's delivery, and facilitates from absolute beginners (Initial level), and through Grade 1 to the very advanced Grade 8.

The recommended 30 minute individual lesson per week is adequate to work through the syllabus at a manageable pace.

The Trinity grades are accredited by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA). YOUR QUALIFICATION IS RECOGNISED TOWARD MUSIC AS A HIGH SCHOOL SUBJECT.


ROCK & POP

Q&A: We are often asked if new pupils need to start at beginning of a year, or term, and if a particular grade material is of a one year duration?

The short answer is NO to both questions. After assessing a suggested entry level with each candidate, irrespective of the time of year or term they may be starting, we then tutor pupils individually at their own pace.

WANT TO PLAY AN INSTRUMENT, BUT NOT SURE WHAT TO DO NEXT?

You are always more than welcome to take up our assessment session (no obligation) offer,  should you not be too sure of your instrument choice, and/or you would like to see our inner workings first.


NOT SURE STUDIO FACILITY

Behind the scenes, we are able to and regularly do in-house arranging, customising, and recording.

We believe this is essential for young pupils to learn the importance of attention to detail early in their development.

Although the facility is small and limited to a standard laptop, ACID DAW and Firefly audio interface, we have had very pleasing results. (See abbreviated video grabs below)



In response to the many requests and enquiries for a graded MUSIC PRODUCTION course we have evaluated and selected to offer the RSL syllabus as from this (the first) term of 2020.






The graded POPULAR MUSIC THEORY fully addresses the needs of the modern musician and/or band.

The graded ACOUSTIC GUITAR content is very exiting and we will be looking to collaborate with an acoustic guitar master to teach these techniques.



MAY 1970 the Beatles last album - LET IT BE was released - and to commemorate the wonderful music they gave the world we chose 13 tracks from 1962 thru 1970 which have been re-arranged digitally.

Our pupils did not wait for a second invitation and immediately jumped in to contribute the vocals takes.

During the forthcoming weeks we will post the project progress here as well as post the backing tracks on 1Drive for interested folk to download and share.


The energy, enthusiasm, and productivity of our pupils runs very high, as they are encouraged to participate in live and recording projects, over and above the set piece and session skills requirements for their grades.

A far more rounded result ensues - and we have seen past pupils, many as young adults now, working in the industry both locally and abroad.
