Below are some of our most frequently asked questions. If there is anything else you want to know just ask!
Q. My child can't eat certain foods - can you cater for them?
We are used to catering for a variety of allergies and dietary requirements - just let us know on your booking form if there is anything you'd like us to be aware of.
Q. We don't live in the UK - can we still join a course?
Absolutely! We have taught children from all around the world in our online courses. And if the times don't work for you where you are, you can get a small group together and we can run a course just for you at more suitable times. Give us a call to discuss options.
Q. What happens between the course and the exam?
After the course, your child will complete at least 4 past papers which we will mark by email, usually within a day or two. In the 4 weeks following the course, we offer full email/telephone support and as marking as you need. After this period your child should be ready to take the exam. If they need any further help we can arrange some one to one lessons (at an additional cost)
Q. How do I enter my child for the grade 5 theory exam?
You can book the exam yourself, directly on the abrsm.org website. Once you book, you will have 30 days to sit the exam, so only book when you have agreed with us that your child is ready! The exam is on demand so you can just do this whenever suits you.
Q. Are online classes/courses as effective as in person lessons?
Yes! We have been teaching Aural Skills, Theory, GCSE & A-level online for years. All you need is a good wifi connecion and somewhere quiet to stay focussed. Our online courses are just as fun as our in person ones, full of games, music making and learning. One to one lessons are no different online, you just need to email us what you want to work on in advance.
Q. We don't live in London - can you reccommend somewhere to stay and things to do?
Absolutely! We often have families from outside London joining us and we love sharing our favourite places to stay, eat, drink etc. There is so much to do here, it's a shame it's only a weekend to fill! Let us know what you like and we will happily suggest hotels, restaurants and activities to make the most out of your weekend in our amazing city!
