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.

Next open day for Yamaha courses  Sunday 21 March 2021 (if we are still unable to meet in person, our reserve date is Sunday 25 April)

Next new courses start Saturday 17 April. Our January intake is still waiting to start and may be able to start sooner than Easter - there are a few places left - please contact us if you'd like to try a class.

New class times See below. All class times are subject to demand.

How to book or register your interest Contact us to book your place on the open day or to go on the list to receive information about future open days and new lessons
