HISTORY ITEMS

All Music Theory Courses are now full until next year!  Congratulations to those who took the Grade 5 Exam in November - lots of Merits and Distinctions!  February 14th/15th or March 25th/26th are the next 2 day courses available.  Do please consider making a little group up and requesting a One Day course if you like the idea of a challenge!    Telephone 0118 9712555 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.

We are pleased to announce that everyone taking Grade 5 Theory this year with us passed and most gained merits or distinctions.  Our highest mark was 97%!

One mother was so happy that she would like her message to be published:

The results are far better than I ever imagined could be achieved in the space of just 2 weeks.  When I look back at the first email I ever sent you, I said, "Your 2 day crash course looks ideal...I confess though that I am wondering whether it is too good to be true!" You reassured me that it wasn't. How pleased am I that I listened to you!  Lauren and Hannah thoroughly enjoyed the course (especially the pizza and bath bombs making).  Hannah only scraped a pass at Grade 2 Theory this time last year and learned so much from you in such a short space of time.  At only 9 she is very young to attempt Grade 5 and we very nearly waited until she was older.  Taking 10 past papers seemed very daunting.  I'm glad now we didn't wait as both of our daughters really enjoyed every second - even taking the past papers!

Lauren gained a Distinction and Hannah was one mark off a Distinction.

Great news and encouraging!  Well done.

We thought that you might like to know a little bit about us! We have been married for 31 years and have 3 grown up children and 1 grandchild.

Daniel has always taught music and together  for 7 years we ran the Music Department at Elstree School until deciding to teach and run course from home a few years ago..Originally Sandra trained as a nurse and was a Theatre Sister (many years ago now!).

Daniel teaches the piano mostly but also music theory, A Level and GCSE music. He also plays the organ and runs Enharmonic Choir. Currently he is also working in the Downs School helping with their A Level Music.

Sandra helps with all the above as well as teaching singing and piano. Until just recently (for almost 20 years) was Chair of Directors of the Kennet School Academies Trust and is now starting to enjoy having a little more time for her love of art and cooking!

Both of us have current enhanced DBS checks.

Parent Feedback

Maddy gained distinction in her grade 5 theory exam - 90 marks. She is thrilled, needless to say, and so are we.

We are very happy to have found Soundscool and Alex would be in no way ready for his exam without you. It is pleasing to discover something on the internet which is as good as it claims to be and he has had a wonderful time!

We have just got Alexander's results.... 94%! Thank you so much for all you did for us..he knew nothing of Grade 5 theory before October half term. You prepared him very well. We are so glad we found you!

The boys really enjoyed their time with you and felt totally enthusiastic about the whole experience. They both loved your approach and the warm welcome you gave them, and were up bright and ready for day two without prompting.

"For our son music theory was something to dread before coming on your course, but now he is so confident and he has found inspiration in understanding the theory behind the music he plays. His organ teacher has noticed the difference in his understanding, so this experience has enriched him and helped him beyond just the exam."
