ABRSM Theory exams prepared for including accelerated Grade 5 Theory exam preparation. Some of our ten year olds are studying for ABRSM Grade 6 Theory – an exam which attracts UCAS points. Pupils at this level are allocated a dedicated Tutor.

Fun, engaging and creative!
Pupils in the Seniors Group are taught to read, write, perform and compose music, as well as develop vital Aural & Sight Reading skills, all of which combine to create and develop well-rounded young musicians. Pupils are taught to accurately transcribe a rhythm/melody on manuscript that is performed to them, identify harmonic & melodic intervals, sing back a melody, and describe the texture of a piece.

Small Tutor Groups
All pupils work at their own individual pace, and small Tutor Groups of an average of four children per Tutor ensure a healthy balance of 1:1 attention and group interaction. Pupils are taught using a combination of the acclaimed series of Chelsea Quavers’ Music Puzzles©, the ABRSM syllabus and the Chelsea Quavers Sight Reading Programme© and CHENGA!© Pupils participate in a variety of fun and lively group activities and games including listening to different styles of music, learning about composers & musical periods, orchestral families, seating etc.
Each week, we readily encourage those pupils who learn an instrument to perform at Club to fellow pupils and Tutors. This is particularly important for those sitting practical exams or preparing for a concert at school. Pupils enjoy regular Tutor demonstrations and performances a variety of instruments including cello, piano, violin, bassoon, guitar (electric & acoustic), trombone. This gives pupils the opportunity to get up close and try out a number of instruments.

Each week a summary of your child’s progress is recorded. Upon request, we can provide parents with feedback at any given point during the term.

Claire Meyer [Principal] is simply one of the most extraordinary educators I have ever met. She has carefully crafted a bespoke curriculum & the Chelsea Quavers’ teaching style I believe to be the future of music education & teaching in general.
