I prepare pupils for ABRSM exams Grade 1-8 and can provide support for practical preparations for school Standard and Higher Music.
For any pupil not wishing to sit exams a more relaxed course will be taken, gradually improving their technique and expanding their knowledge of repertoire.
I use a range of musical materials but I find that a good starter book like "Look, Listen and Learn" or "Essential Elements" is generally the best. Then depending on the age of the pupil and their musical taste either move onto Disney themes, Movie themes or the more traditional Classical music, for example Haydn, Hummel, Mozart etc.
