Aural Test Coaching
The focus of instrumental lessons often tends to be on developing technique and performance skills. In the build up to exams the supporting tests can easily get neglected, and yet they form an integral part of each exam and of every musician’s general development. We provide extra support for students who would like to develop their aural test skills, particularly with the increased demands of the higher grades.
As an accomplished pianist, Hannah has much experience accompanying instrumentalists and singers, and Matt regularly accompanies his own pupils for their exams. Whether you need an accompanist for an exam, recital or would just like to try playing through your pieces with the piano part, we will organise sessions to suit your needs.
Piano Consultation Lessons
Whilst Hannah’s busy schedule doesn’t allow for regular lessons, she is able to provide consultation lessons for pianists at an intermediate/advanced level. If you are preparing for an audition, festival performance or would simply like a fresh perspective on your playing, Hannah is happy to arrange a consultation session with you.
An understanding of music theory is a necessary element of a rounded musical education. We are able to provide theory lessons, or extra support as you prepare for a music theory exam.
Viva Voce Training
A Viva Voce often seems like the most daunting part of a Diploma exam. With one or two coaching sessions we can help you feel more confident as you discuss your chosen repertoire.
