Catford Music School has a diverse range of music classes for children and young people, aged up to 17 years. Teaching methods provide a modern alternative to traditional approaches, although a structured progression through musical grades 1-8 in a chosen instrument is also offered.
The weekday beginners piano group teaches the instrument's basic techniques and skills, with young people being encouraged to discover and work towards their dreams as musicians, whatever they may be!
Progression is often very fast, with students thriving in a warm and nurturing environment.
Group lessons for up to four are a fun and sociable way of learning the piano while also sharing skills. Students are placed together with others of a similar age, ability, confidence and experience. Sessions are friendly, informal and inclusive. If you want your child to develop a solid foundation in piano while having fun and making new friends, why not give Catford Music School a try?
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
This is a Flexitime class, which means the teacher can run this class around your schedule.

About your host, Catford Music School
Alex Cockle has been involved in music since the age of four when his father taught him the harmonica. A lively and enthusiastic emphasis is always put upon the arts in general. Alex studied classical piano for twelve years and completed his grade eight piano exam.
He studied music at university and even enjoyed a scholarship year in America before graduating with a first class honors degree in music. He has since lived in London and worked as a professional musician throughout Europe, performing at many exclusive venues including The Royal Festival Hall. Alex has dedicated the last eight years of his career to music teaching, namely with the Catford Music School. The inspiration to plan Catford Music School occurred exactly one year after completing a transatlantic sailing trip from Falmouth UK to Saint Lucia in the Caribbean Sea. A family voyage covering 4500 miles during 2006. Manny, Sue, Victor and Alex were all crew onboard 'Thisbe', their faithful boat, a Nicholson 32 from Mylor in Cornwall. Many new paths in their lives have been forged as a result of such an inspiring journey. Alex felt it was necessary to bring together both of his lifelong pursuits and start another music school in Catford where he has many friends and relatives. Many existing students have shared that inspiration in learning and encouraged him to start his own school.
All students under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
