The Yamaha Play for Keeps course comprises a broad range of learning materials that cater to all levels of learning. While our students take advantage of the diverse learning resources made available to them, our curriculum’s backbone is focused on developing Keyboard skills and learning to play the Keyboard.

Our Yamaha-trained instructors are committed to providing personalised Keyboard instruction that suits each student’s learning objectives and pace. We carry out a preliminary evaluation to recognise the student’s starting point in terms of their experience and playing ability. This helps us to tailor our approach to teaching that meets each student’s individual learning objectives. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced Keyboardist, we have the right course for you.

We provide students with all they require to learn the Keyboard, starting from posture and hand movement to reading sheet music and playing scales. Once students master the foundation techniques, they’ll progress to the more complex and challenging Keyboard techniques like Improvisation, Composition, Advanced Harmony and Arrangement Techniques.

For more experienced players, we also offer weekly Band Skills sessions, where students can learn how to play in a band with other like-minded individuals. Our bands have many opportunities to perform each year and due to this consistent exposure to improving on their instrument, students often excel when studying their instrument and band.

If you aspire to become a professional Keyboardist, the Play for Keeps course is the right fit for you. Our programme will provide you with globally recognised training that sets you apart from other Keyboardists nationally and internationally. All students leave our programme with a solid foundation in Keyboard playing skills, which is beneficial in their music career pursuit.

Still not sure? Here's more info about The Music Works:

  • We have been delivering music lessons in our local area for over 12 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. Teachers are fully vetted with the usual safety and rights checks (enhanced DBS child safeguarding etc) and 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! Throughout the 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 and in several Partner schools, 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!
