Students will be provided with a well-rounded music program for classical and modern guitar, which will aim in reaching the student’s full potential. Students’ musicianship and technique skills will flourish within an exploration of a wide repertoire, in either classical or modern studies.

Whether for enjoyment or as an academic study, our programs will ensure that students build a strong foundation in music.

Our teachers use their University and Masters qualifications and performance experience to ensure that students make substantial improvement and learn to enjoy and appreciate any of these instruments.

Building a solid foundation in singing is important. Our vocal teachers focus on lessons that include posture, realizing your voice, breathing, aural training, self-awareness, vocal health and technique.
