Our classes have been uniquely designed in such a way that STUDENTS ARE ASSESSED AS AN INDIVIDUAL, allowing them to develop at their own pace, and not be held back by others, this also allows new students to enter the programme at any stage
Students learn to read music, and gain a greater understanding of music theory during fun filled class activities.
Your child is required to have an A 4 display folder – this helps in the management of their music/activity sheets which are provided at no extra cost, all music is written and arranged by the Wellard School of Music.
“So much fun your child will not even suspect they are learning to read and play music.”
Guitar Legends is hosted by Simon Halling - guitarist extraordinaire, bringing a world of experience to this programme covering the many various style associated with playing guitar… the group environment allows musical benchmarks to be set and met by students and their peers, whilst developing their musical ear, sense of pitch, and hand-eye coordination, group environment breeds confidence, self-esteem, and develops their social skills.
“Making music together builds bonds of trust and communication, all are vital for emotional well-being and academic success”.
We work closely with our surrounding councils and various institutions, providing us opportunities for our students to help build confidence and skill through performance, including various community events.
You can also watch your child grow musically through our performance recital/concerts which are held at the end of each semester (mid-year and end of year), we have traditionally, and will continue to ensure that our recitals are friendly, encouraging, inspiring and FUN!!!! Including the presentation of certificates, whilst creating wonderful memories that last a lifetime, and the children are always asking “when is our next concert?”
They really enjoy this event, and most importantly it builds SELF-ESTEEM and a “HUGE! CONFIDENCE BOOSTER!”
