The main objective to learning any instrument is to develop a love of music, problem solving skills and to be a disciplined learner. Lessons are once per week for 30 minutes. Basic theory is covered in all beginner lessons to solidify new concepts and ensure proper understanding from beginning. Weekly practice is required in order for students to progress in their musical endeavours. Here, at The Royal Academy of Arts and Education, students can choose from an open curriculum program whereby they study their favourite artists and pieces, or work through Royal Conservatory content eventually preparing for levelled examinations.
