Group Music Theory Classes, September 2017

East Dulwich Music Theory Piano LessonsIn September 2017, we will be starting group music theory classes for beginner/Grade 1 level on Thursdays at 4pm in East Dulwich. The class is 30 minutes and costs £8 per session. Classes are paid for termly in advance. The Autumn Term has 13 weeks.

Beginner students will learn the building blocks of music theory. Students that have had about a year of lessons may be ready to move on to Grade 1 music theory. A graded exam would be sat once a student has worked through past papers. An additional fee for past papers and exam entry will apply where applicable.
