Girl Practicing Piano

Our Approach

to light the spark of music curiosity

The early years are so important. Of course children need to be challenged. They also need to engage. Push too hard and they may reject. Go too slow and they get bored.


Any fruitful musical journey starts with a willing explorer.


Our music lessons are adaptive, based on you or your child’s ability and interest. We can guide through the ABRSM music grades 1-5, if that is an agreed objective. And a worthy goal that is too. We can also work through less intensive programmes like Bastien, Faber & Faber and Alfred. Other children have responded well to learning about simple composition and chord structures.


Whilst the rudiments of music terminology, scales and, above all, practice are fundamental, what builds on top of that foundation will become apparent during lessons.


Started by Phil Swain, a successful corporate businessman and former professional musician, lessons at your home or alternatively at Redington Road in Central Hampstead form part of a growing industry of music nurturing and exploration. A real foundry of creativity.
