Well done to all the pupils that took piano and singing exams last term.  One pass and all the others merits and distinctions.  Plus two girls that did their 'Prep. Test' and received fantastic comments from the examiner!

Following a great success with Music Scholarships and pupils getting into their chosen universities we will have 4 spaces for piano lessons from the Summer Term.  As you may know we normally have a waiting list but if you would like to take up the piano this might be your opportunity!  Do email or ring us (0118 9712555) if you would like to have a trial lesson or book a slot for next term.

Lessons are for half an hour.   Apart from learning to read music and play the piano there is every chance that you will have an exciting half hour and lots of fun along the way!

We thought that you might like to know a little bit about us! We have been married for 31 years and have 3 grown up children and 1 grandchild.

Daniel has always taught music and together  for 7 years we ran the Music Department at Elstree School until deciding to teach and run course from home a few years ago..Originally Sandra trained as a nurse and was a Theatre Sister (many years ago now!).

Daniel teaches the piano mostly but also music theory, A Level and GCSE music. He also plays the organ and runs Enharmonic Choir. Currently he is also working in the Downs School helping with their A Level Music.

Sandra helps with all the above as well as teaching singing and piano. Until just recently (for almost 20 years) was Chair of Directors of the Kennet School Academies Trust and is now starting to enjoy having a little more time for her love of art and cooking!

Both of us have current enhanced DBS checks.

Parent Feedback

Maddy gained distinction in her grade 5 theory exam - 90 marks. She is thrilled, needless to say, and so are we.

We are very happy to have found Soundscool and Alex would be in no way ready for his exam without you. It is pleasing to discover something on the internet which is as good as it claims to be and he has had a wonderful time!

We have just got Alexander's results.... 94%! Thank you so much for all you did for us..he knew nothing of Grade 5 theory before October half term. You prepared him very well. We are so glad we found you!

The boys really enjoyed their time with you and felt totally enthusiastic about the whole experience. They both loved your approach and the warm welcome you gave them, and were up bright and ready for day two without prompting.

"For our son music theory was something to dread before coming on your course, but now he is so confident and he has found inspiration in understanding the theory behind the music he plays. His organ teacher has noticed the difference in his understanding, so this experience has enriched him and helped him beyond just the exam."
