JUNIOR MUSIC COURSE
The Junior Music Course (JMC) is Yamaha's flagship educational programme. The course starts students from the age of 4 or 5 years old. This is the ideal time to develop absolute pitch, a sense of harmony and the ability to recognise harmonic phrases.
The goal of the Junior Music Course is to enable children to sing what they hear, play what they sang and to compose music in a natural, expressive way. Learning this way helps to develop the foundations for creativity and expression using the keyboard instrument as a learning tool. Using rich imagery, and approaching music as a language, children can learn in a natural and joyful way.
Parents sit in on the lessons to help students develop quickly and learn in a fun and social way. Join the waiting list now by booking your free taster lesson!

BUT WHY STUDY WITH US?
We have been delivering music lessons in the local area for over 10 years! Through industry experience and by making sure we work with some of the best music teachers in the area, we have grown to see hundreds of students every week for lessons.
We are a Yamaha Music School, which means only the best teachers can work with us. Every teacher that succeeds in our interview process is fully vetted with the usual safety and rights checks (enhanced DBS child safeguarding etc) but also are also interviewed by world leader Yamaha, to make doubly sure that they are great at what they do! Once they have passed the interview stage, they receive yearly training to make sure they continue being awesome.
We are a not-for-profit company that cares about our students. We want to see every student reach their full potential and are here to guide them if they need our help. If you need any guidance at any point, please get in touch.
Every student gets a chance to perform, often! Throughout the academic year we are a part of several large scale events, such as Haslemere Fringe, where we give our most promising students the opportunity to get valuable performance experience. You will also see us at smaller events, such as school summer fairs and discos, where we offer our services for free to help our local community. Students can join in with our open mic nights too!
Every student can learn how to be in a real, live band! We offer fantastic weekly band skills lessons at our Milford Centre, where students can learn the ins-and-outs of how to work well in a band setting. They will learn great songs, how to work in a team, build confidence and socialise with like-minded individuals. Every year our bands excel and join us on the biggest stages, where they perform to audiences of hundreds and sometimes thousands of people. It really is incredibly valuable musical experience at such a young age!
