It is advisable (but not essential) to be Gr 2 level (practical and theory). If you are not Gr 2 level yet, you will be assessed and we will advise you on what is best for you. Usually, the Gr 8 theory class is split, which allows pupils who have done lots of theory to work in a group and others who have done little or no theory to work together. Each group has their own teacher.
We cannot accommodate beginner pianists as a 1st or only instrument. Subject music pupils learning the piano as a 1st instrument must have a piano at home. (Electric keyboards are considered a separate instrument, in which we are not able to offer tuition).
Non-Subject Music: Westerford offers non-subject music lessons from Grade 8 – 12. The provision of lessons for subject music pupils takes precedence over that of non-subject pupils.
