Play For Keeps is the perfect way to learn the keyboard, whether it is purely for your own enjoyment or you are aiming to be a professional musician. During the course students will have the opportunity to compose, arrange music in their own style and learn how to improvise. As well as becoming confident with technique and theory,
our keyboard players also develop a great range of contemporary repertoire, from Rock & Roll to Jazz to modern Pop.
In grade 1 alone students will learn classic tracks such as Teenage Kicks, Budapest and Mr Brightside!

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!
