Piano Lessons:


LMS will endeavor to make your lessons right for you. We will review your musical goals every 12 weeks to make sure you are getting the most from your lessons. We offer a variety of options including:

  • lesson content
  • style/genre
  • exams or playing for fun
  • number of pupils
  • frequency of lessons. 
LMS will be happy to make changes to any of the above areas to ensure you get maximum benefit and fun from each session.


Facilities:

LMS piano lessons will be taught in a dedicated music room/studio using a Zimmermann upright piano. 

In addition, there is a Yamaha CS1X keyboard that has headphones that can be used for practice during pair sessions.

There is a waiting area for accompanying adults which you are more than welcome to use.

We also have the privilege to have access to professional recording equipment which will allow you to have the option - at an additional cost- to make a CD of the music you have made. 

 

Getting to Know YOU

The first session will be entirely based around you. LMS wants to know what you like to do, watch, play and listen to, what you want to gain from the lessons and what (if any) musical goals you have. That way we will be able to put together a personalised plan for your lessons. Some things that you could consider include:


Genres and Styles:

The genres and styles of music you like to listen to and that you might like to learn how to play:

  • Classical
  • Jazz and Blues
  • Pop
  • Rock
  • Musical Theatre
If there is another area of music that you would like to explore then please let us know and we will source suitable pieces for you to play.


Musical Aims and Goals:

What do you want to achieve from having these lessons? It is useful to have in mind some aims and goals that you can work towards.

Perhaps you would like to:

  • work towards grade exams
  • play for fun
  • learn your favorite songs
  • learn how be an accompanist
  • learn how to improvise 
Whether you want to play the piano to work towards grade exams or wow your friends and family with familiar songs, or you simply want to play the piano for your own pleasure and enjoyment, then LMS can tailor your lesson to suit you.


Books and resources will be an additional cost but will be worth it- I can suggest the books needed and good sites/shops to go to.
