We like all our families to experience an introductory session before they reserve a class time in a Yamaha course (parents session or taster lesson). These sessions usually happen twice a year: in March and October.

How to book or register your interest See table of new classes below then contact us to book your place in an introductory session or to go on the list to receive information about future open days and new lessons

Families may reserve places in new classes ahead of the open day if they already have a child with us, or have previously attended an open day
