Mini Musicians is a fun, creative and exploratory introduction to music for your little one. Although it leans towards the piano, it is a great start on their musical journey towards any instrument with its focus on exploring pitch, patterns and rhythm.
It combines songs, movement, playing piano and chime bars, improvisation and games with fun listening and colouring activities which can be done at home.
"Children learn a lot in a short space of time, have fun and come home singing snippets of the songs from the session and talking about their learning. High quality resources provided to follow up learning at home and individual advice and guidance given too. The lesson notes are an added bonus so you get to see what your child has been up to and ideas for practising at home. Great value for money and highly recommended!"

My daughter has lessons with Alison on Fridays after school and she loves them. She’s always so excited to share what she learns, the lesson notes that are shared are a very nice idea. I would highly recommend Long Mynd Music Academy and Alison 100%.

Little Rockers / Buddy Lessons
Piano Drums Guitar
In Little Rockers children get the opportunity to try out guitar, bass guitar, drums, and keyboard, learning songs on all instruments! This is a great chance to get the feel for being in a band and discover which instrument is really YOU.
Buddy Lessons are a great way to start for children who already know they love the piano, or who want to start building a solid instrumental foundation. Children recieve 25 minutes tuition at their own instrument (2 children per session) then join with another buddy pair for 10 minutes to play theory games, improvise, compose and play as an ensemble.
At this age, practise at home is not obligatory and for Little Rockers we don't even expect you to have an instrument at home. For extra time playing and practising, send them along to our Music Meet-ups and, as a bonus, you get an hour to yourself!!
Group Piano /
Group piano lessons are a unique opportunity for students to advance rapidly on the piano, whilst also developing excellent musical independence and understanding. Students spend 35 minutes learning at their pianos in groups of 4. Following this, they join up with another group to receive 20 minutes of class - in this setting collaboration is really important and the students have lots of opportunities to voice their opinions and ideas. We cover improvisation, composition, theory, games and ensemble playing and we are keen to use music that our students know and love alongside our curriculum pieces.
Buddy Lessons are offered for all other instruments. Students recieve 25 minutes tuition at their own instrument (2 children per session) then join with another buddy pair for 10 minutes to play theory games, improvise, compose and play as an ensemble.
By taking lessons with others, students form important friendship groups, find lessons more enjoyable, are more motivated and gain the immeasurable advantage of playing music with others!
As students progress beyond our group and buddy curriculums, they transition into private 1:1 lessons.
Alison is a fabulous teacher. My daughter looks forward to her weekly class and always comes out happy telling me about what they have done. The updates from the lesson we get sent each week are really good and gives you a good idea what they get up to and the progress. Very professional and lovely lady . Definitely worth booking.
