FOR STUDENTS - a real sense of achievementfor students

Making music must be one of the most joyful experiences on earth. Learning to play an instrument, however, can be less joyous. We all need encouragement to persevere when mastery seems beyond our reach. We have to know that we are doing better today than we did yesterday.

It is important that music is to be performed and is not just a subject to read about and remember the facts. Likewise, concentrating mainly on three or four exam pieces does not constitute performing. Far from it, performing means having played a lot of music and ideally, a wide range of musical styles. Students are encouraged to develop useful and lifelong interests in music. They can spend their times engaging in an enjoyable and valuable music performances beyond an exam room.

Robinson School of Music provides opportunities for the development of musical interests both in performance and theory. Your progress will be monitored to ensure that your growth in musical understanding and performance are continually developing to the highest level, whether you want to pursue music as a career or enjoy as a hobby. We have selected a large number of qualified teachers who give individual lessons to create the right professional and friendly atmosphere. We believe that success in music can be achieved through enjoyment and determination. We are here to support and assist you in all aspects of musical education.

We wish you every success and look forward to seeing you grow musically and enjoy music making, a delightful pursuit that brings joy to you and others for a lifetime.

  • Fill every minute’s practice with 60 seconds of concentration
