- Piano and Singing Lessons -

Choosing a piano or singing teacher can be a daunting task; there are so many to choose from and it can  be difficult to know what quality and professionalism to expect.  With PJC Music School, you know that you or your child will be taught by an accomplished, Conservatoire trained musician who is a fully qualified teacher with over 15 years of experience- just look at the student testimonials to see how happy they were with their choice of teacher.  

Students at PJC Music School currently come from all over Bradford, Leeds, Bingley, Wakefield and Manchester. They enjoy learning to play on a beautiful Yamaha Baby Grand Piano in a purposefully designed music room. Parents are more than welcome to either drop their child off, or sit and relax while watching the lesson. 

Piano lessons are appropriate for all ages and abilities and are tailored individually to the student's needs. We recommend that Young Beginners (aged 3-12) sign up for our fantastic 

Young Beginners Programmeto ensure the most engagement and progress.  

Some examples of current students' needs include:
   ♪ Wanting to learn at their own leisure and pace- just for fun!  
   ♪ Build a strong foundation with a view to progressing to graded exams  
   ♪ Improving technique and range to be able to sing any song!  
   ♪ Work on sight singing skills to help competency at choir rehearsals  
   ♪ A ‘fast track’ approach to meet the needs of GCSE or A level requirements  
   ♪ Having the confidence to audition at school/ choir/ amateur dramatics  
   ♪ Intensive ‘straight to Grade 8’ lessons for sixth formers wanting to gain UCAS points    
   ♪ Preparing for auditions for conservatoires or music/drama/performing arts colleges.

- Music Theory -

Grade 1-4 Music Theory

Our Grade 1-4 Music Theory is taught as part of our Intermediates Group Programme. 

Music Theory is an integral part of learning to sing or play the piano, not an isolated subject in itself. However, there are occasions when a more focused approach is needed: 

Grade 5 Music Theory

If a student wishes to progress to Grade 6 or above in ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal School of Music) exams, it is a requirement to have passed Grade 5 Theory first. Phillippa has experience in helping students pass this exam in a short time frame with focused lessons, as well as working towards it more gradually by taking some specific theory time at the end of each singing or piano lesson. 

GCSE and A Levels

As curriculum leader in an outstanding music department, Phillippa is an expert in teaching all requirements of the GCSE and A level courses. Tutoring is offered to help with the composition aspects of the courses, as well as musical analysis, history, and general listening & appraising. 

At our first lesson, we will discuss goals and aims and find a plan tailored specifically to you or your child!
