Past Courses

This is from Molly's mother....

"I’m sure you’ll both be pleased to hear that Molly, who did your course at half term, has just got 95 Distinction in her theory!  We are all thrilled!  When Molly came to you, she only had the basics of theory (around Grade 2) and it’s just fantastic that she learnt so much so quickly. The method you taught her completely suited her – she loved the structure and the confidence it gave her – and she found it interesting.  As you know, I thought we were taking a slight risk taking the exam just 10 days after the course, but it was worth it. Thank you for encouraging her to ‘go for it.’ In the 10 days between half term and the exam, Molly did 8 exam papers (we didn’t quite manage 10) and each time we sat down afterwards and she looked through what mistake she would avoid another time.

As you know, our other older daughter, had taken her theory (and passed by a mark) having not been prepared at all properly. As we hoped, she feels the course has really helped give her an understanding of theory she didn’t have and she feels much more confident as she has her practical lessons and as she goes in to GCSE music.

Thank you for providing such expert tuition and a warm and enjoyable environment. The girls felt very much at home, had enormous fun and enjoyed meeting the other pupils."

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."
