For talented young musicians aged 8-18, we run a Junior Conservatoire Advanced Course.
Lessons make the development of technique and musicianship a priority, and progress is monitored through termly reports. You will also have the opportunity to perform at informal concerts for family and friends.
Lessons cost £29.00 per half hour and can be taken as 30, 45 or 60 minute lessons. Lessons are generally given on a Saturday.
Entry is by informal audition, during which you will be invited to play or sing 2 short pieces (if you are a complete beginner, your audition will include pitch and rhythm tests). The audition also includes an opportunity to discuss your musical aims with specialist tutors from RWCMD. The audition fee is £30.00.
Community Music Lessons are delivered during term time.
