Music Lessons for Adults
Structured, informed and responsive teaching tailored to each individual adult student's needs, goals and interests.
I am (dare I say gulp) a mature age student, absolutely enjoying having lessons again and exploring a different instrument. I graduated with a music degree in 1982. Since then I have taught a variety of instruments, and been very involved with my children’s school music programmes. Now I am the student again. Loving it.

Who are our adult students?
Margot learned piano as a young child but hated it. She returned to it more than 70 years later in 2018 and has been with us since, taking two 30-minute lessons per week.
Dieter is a busy emergency department doctor who started learning cello with us as an absolute beginner in 2019.
Walter is retired and always wanted to learn guitar so his wife purchased his first 5 lessons and he's with us still many lessons later.
Maria decided to take up the piano as a total beginner not long after turning 50 and has taken her commitment very seriously attending 3 hours a week.
Sheldon is another busy doctor but comes to singing lessons as often as possible.
Hiva and her husband decided to learn piano along side their 5-year-old daughter as an activity to do as a family.
Our programs are not exclusive to children. The Academy works with many adult students, helping them achieve their personal goals whether they are absolute beginners, returning to an instrument they previous started - no matter how long ago - or experienced learners.
We understand that many adult learners have busy schedules or irregular work rosters. We are committed to finding an arrangement that suits adult students. Some adults attend fortnightly, others alternate between two different days each week, some opt for intensive learning with multiple lessons per week for a short period then take some time off, others still take regular 45-minute lessons and when they miss a few for travel the lessons are subsequently made up for with 1-hour lessons.
