... music-making at the heart of every lesson
Encore Music's Curriculum provides a comprehensive and creative framework for teaching musicianship and playing the piano.
Our structured curriculum uses a wide range of respected materials and creative teaching strategies for piano lessons to meet core objectives in areas of pianistic technique, listening
and internalising, reading notation and playing / performing.
Piano lessons for adults are more self-directed as we develop a programme with realistic goals that fit with demands of day to day life. Coaching for exams and theory tuition is also available.
With music at the heart of every piano lesson, Encore Music Tutors teach students to listen to, respond to and play music.
Encore Music hosts informal Student Recitals twice each year to provide opportunities for students to perform for a wider audience.
Performing in the concerts is not compulsory but participation is strongly encourage as it motivates goal-oriented practice, gives learners the opportunity to share their achievements with peers and parents and exposes them to the “pressures” of performing in a friendly environment.
Encore Music prepares students for graded practical piano exams or performance grades with The Associate Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM).
Exams are not compulsory, but can provide invaluable performing experience for young players and tangible targets engendering a sense of achievement.
Our students have an outstanding success rate in ABRSM exams.
