We understand that most adults wish they had started having piano lessons when they were a child. Some adults did play when they were younger but decided to give it up for various reasons. You’re never too old to start playing the pick up from where you left off or even start from scratch.
What most adult players don’t realise is that Morningside School of Music teaches more adults than we teach children! From people in their 30’s to retiree’s looking to pick up something new. It’s the fashionable thing!
The piano is a fantastic instrument whatever style you decide to play. You may even choose to set yourself a challenge and go through the grades as an adult learner. We are more than happy to help you find out exactly what it is you would enjoy playing most. We treat every single client differently, depending on the musical taste, style of learning and reasons for wanting to play. Fun is a must!
Our highly qualified teachers offer private lessons from complete beginners to advanced pianists. We are open from until 9 pm, seven days a week, so we can find a time to suit you. Why not try a lesson and see if you enjoy it? We are sure you will be desperate to keep going, as music is very infectious!
We have specially trained, highly qualified teachers who can educate your child through distinctive piano grades. Our staff can also provide a more relaxed introductory method depending on your child’s age or preference. We can also give tips on how best to practice the instrument. Every child is assessed and taught individually based on how they would best enjoy learning piano.
We can teach classical grades through the ABRSM Piano Graded Syllabus, as well as the Rockschool Piano Syllabus. Both curriculums are SQA approved for use in both state and private schools. We have specific after-school slots available as well as early evening and weekend; we can always find a time that suits parent and child. Why not book your child in for a lesson to see what they think? Most children are desperate to come back! The number one rule at Morningside School of Music is that ‘learning MUST be fun!’
