Exams are entirely optional; for those who choose to take exams, we make use of ABRSM, Trinity and LCM syllabi. We also make use of the performance opportunities offered by the Lichfield Festival of Music (of which David is the Secretary).
David is happy to provide a one-off, no obligation initial lesson at the normal lesson fee. These are a chance to get together, meet each other, have a chat, and to give a taster of what lessons will be like. You can find details of David's ongoing fees and studio policy here.
If you would like to arrange an initial lesson, please contact David. Please give a few details about what you're looking to do, and also an idea of availability.
