PLEASE SEE THE INSTRUMENT PURCHASE PAGE IF YOU NEED HELP CHOOSING AN INSTRUMENT.
I also offer cellos for sale in Rugby, as well as digital pianos; I currently have a 4/4 and a 3/4 cello in stock.
USEFUL PRACTICE TOOLS
…..a lovely thought from an adult student…….
As a relative novice adult piano player I was a little uncertain about the “online lesson” option.
However, after a shaky IT start it has been tremendous, keeps me focused and has actually made me practice more!
I am planning to continue with them after lockdown when away on business trips.
Give it a go and support Ben!
During the Covid-19 pandemic I am able to offer online lessons to both existing and new students. Please make contact using the link below.
For all those doing Theory exams and especially at G5 who are struggling with the question about "Style and Peroid" for a piece of music, please listen to the following pieces on the website: https://www.classicfm.com/classical-100/full-list/
PIANO TUNER: I recommend Steve Droy and his contact details can be found on THE SUPPORT ORGANISATIONS PAGE. See link below.
Welcome to "Music lessons in Rugby." I am Dr Benedict Cliife, and I offer cello lessons, piano lessons, singing lessons and music theory tuition from my Rugby music room; ABRSM Grade 5 music theory is a speciality!
I work towards exams, where required, using ABRSM and MTB.(Music Teachers Board.)
MTB is a relatively new examining board, fully approved and regulated by OFSTED and has the advantage of examining using recordings produced at home (usually my Music room). Full details of their exams can be found at: mtbexams.com. Please use the link below.
ABRSM can be found at this link: ABRSM EXAMS
This website is designed to tell you a little more about what I offer as a teacher of music (Piano, Cello, Singing and Theory), and to help parents and students (including adult pupils) to find other appropriate music teachers in Rugby and the surrounding area.
Adult students are particularly welcome, whether to re-kindle their enjoyment of playing or, as in many cases, to begin a new or first experience in music. All lessons are taught in my Rugby music room. I am sorry, but I don't travel to other venues.
PLEASE READ THE ARTICLE ON ADULT BEGINNERS in the ADULT PUPILS SECTION (About a third of the way down the page!)
At "Music lessons in Rugby," I use the most appropriate teaching methods to suit the individual learning needs of my students. I am able to advise on the purchase of individual musical instruments, and can supply these in some cases. I use both a grand piano, and the latest Yamaha digital piano which is their "top of the range" model for teaching and accompaniment.
Recording facilities are available to enhance the learning process, and also to provide backing tracks and CD’s with varying speeds of accompaniment to assist with practice.
My wife and colleagues are also able to advise and potentially put you in touch with music teachers in almost every other instrument/discipline.
Whatever your needs, please get in touch and I will do my best to help.
I teach Cello, Piano, Singing and Music Theory in Rugby from beginner to Grade 8 and beyond.
I specialise in courses for Grade 5 Music Theory, whilst also teaching theory to all levels.
All pupils are encouraged to combine some music theory work with their main instrumental study, and many also combine singing as a secondary discipline.
All pupils are encouraged to aim towards Grade 5 theory as appropriate, and I offer the necessary support for Associated Board (ABRSM) exams and Trinity exams, from beginner to diploma.
Help is also available for certain areas of GCSE music exams (or equivalent) and also A level music.
Through my network of professional colleagues, I am able to put parents and students in touch with many teachers of other instruments. Most of these are qualified professional teachers, and all will hold current DBS/CRB paperwork. Please contact me if you need advice or help.
