What happens in lessons? What do I learn?

During lessons, pupils are guided from basic rudiments, through technique, to advanced levels of performance. Pupils are taught notation along with other relevant subjects such as theory in practice and interpretation and style through the medium of well known and popular tunes. Studies designed to develop technique also form an important part of lessons. All pupils are expected to demonstrate what has been achieved at home as a result of practice so that constructive and helpful advice can be offered during the learning process.
