Philosophy of Music Education

South Lancs Music Tuition believes passionately in developing a fully rounded musician within the scope of instrumental lessons. Leaving behind more traditional "reading" methods and embracing a more holistic approach, Jacqueline aims to have students creating music from their very first lesson and enjoying being able to express themselves through their playing. 

Above all, each lesson should be an opportunity for real music-making in a relaxed, fun and safe environment to give the student a life-long love of music.

Using a mix of rote learning, aural, improvisation, technique, theory and music history & appreciation to create a tailored lesson structure for each student. In keeping with Paul Harris' Simultaneous Learning structure and the the Curious Piano Teacher's Piano Framework, we use Wunderkeys and Piano Safari as a central part of the curriculum.

With the firm belief that music can be learned at almost any age and that everyone has musical potential.  Students will be taken on a journey of discovery in music with the aim of giving them the skills towards independence, creativity and the chance to become enthusiastic musicians.

Exams within the music curriculum are available but not essential to music progression.
