Lessons and Classes

From a small room for one to one tuition to medium-sized spaces for a larger class or workshop, we have space for a range of teaching activity.

Facilities include a piano in our McCoy Studio, a Yamaha Clavinova that roams the site, dispensing keyboard services wherever they may be required, OHPs that project nicely onto thw white walls of our rooms and flipchart stands to help with collaborative learning.

We place no restrictions on what people can teach here: we're equally happy with yoga, singing, acting and stage combat, or even with less physical activities like creative writing and languages.  The space is yours to work with as you will, and you and your students will receive a warm welcome.
