“She wants to teach the world to play”
 

Group lessons help to develop listening skills and build confidence when playing

infront of others. They’re a great way to bring about a little friendly

competition and they’re also, and most importantly, fun!
 

“I really want to create an environment where children are listening, singing and

playing, whilst developing a love for the piano and skills which will last them a

lifetime”
 

Ginni encourages parents to attend the lessons and sit next to the children

whilst learning.

“Music should be present in all homes. It’s always a shame when you hear of

children being told to practise either with their headphones on or in the spare

room at the end of the hall. I want to encourage families to make music

together.”
 

Music and materials used in these courses are from Supersonics Plus. They

provide music which is relevant and accessible to children, and fun activities to

support the learning. However, children are also encouraged to share ideas

about music they enjoy listening to and would like to play.
