Welcome to Primo Piano

At Primo Piano we believe group piano lessons are the best way for your child to learn to play. In addition to being excellent value, children learn better and have more fun within a group situation.  Music making is, by its very nature, a group activity and all musicians need to learn to play and interact with other musicians to reach their full potential.

 

 

Regular piano practice at home is one of the main keys to success as a musician. Our practice mantra is, “A little, and often!”  Students who attend a piano lesson with other children each week are much more highly motivated to practice at home in order to ‘show off’ their playing skills to their friends and parents within the weekly class and the  ‘Annual Recital’ at Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.

 

practicing ready for a lesson at the piano schoolEvery student at Primo Piano has their own high-quality Yamaha piano keyboard to play during the 40 minute piano lesson.  Class sizes are small, with usually between four and six students in each group.  As children advance classes often divide into smaller groups and then into a ‘shared private’  lesson with a child of similar age.

Further information

You will find lots of useful information in the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section of this website.  A broad range of  topics are covered including practicing and choosing a suitable piano. However you might like to start by finding out a little bit more about the beginner’s groups that we run by clicking on one of the links below.

From Spring 2016 we will also be running music and movement sessions for pre-school children with the help of Primo the Parrot!

We believe that a lot of the success of a lesson is down to structure and careful planning, however a lesson will only ever be as good as the piano teacher who leads it. Click on the link below if you would like to meet the Primo Piano team.
