Student of the Month – February 2019

Robyn F. (Piano) We finally caught up with our February Student of the Month this week! Robyn has been super busy recently, splitting her time between her piano lessons, a recent music theory exam and school commitments, and so we’ve not had chance to present her with her prize before now. It’s that theory exam

Saturday Student Focus – 16th March 2019

Jasmeen N. (Piano) Jasmeen is one of our newer Piano Students, having been taking lessons on a Saturday for about 7 months now. She likes the way that her teacher Maria makes her lessons funny, and her favourite piece to play so far has been “Rockin’ and Rollin’”. Jasmeen’s interesting fact about herself is that

Saturday Student Focus – 9th March 2019

In an effort to try and keep things simpler, we’ve decided that we’re going to separate the Saturday Student Focus feature from our main blog. This way, our Saturday Student gets a feature all to themselves! So, this week’s Saturday Student is… Blake M. (Piano) Blake has been with us just under two years now

We’re Growing…

We’ve been very busy this week thinking about how best to meet the needs of our Students! 2019 so far has seen a huge growth in lesson enquiries. This is fantastic news, but we were actually getting to the point where we didn’t have any (or very limited!) spaces to offer for certain instruments! Although

Spring is almost here!

Is it just us, or does it seem very spring-like outside at the moment? It’s not before time – we’ve had our fill of the dreary dark days and freezing cold weather. It’s lovely to be able to keep the blinds open that little bit longer on an evening! The (slightly) warmer weather is definitely

What a difference a year (or 3) makes!

We received a Facebook notification yesterday about one of our “memories” – a Facebook post you’d created on this day at some time in the past. The memory was from 2016 and was all about the time when Louise first started branching out and taking on staff. Lots of our Students joined us after this

New Arrivals

This week’s blog post is coming to you a little later than planned, due to a hectic week getting on top of us and delaying the writing process! Our regular catch-up day this week was taken up enrolling all of our new Students (more on this later) and so we’re a little behind. Brand new

Making Connections

So this week, we’ve been all about making connections! Both yesterday and today we’ve been attending a business course through in North Shields. It’s linked to another course we attended back in June last year, called Boost Your Business. These courses are designed to help you promote your business and to think in depth about

Certificates Galore!

We’ve been handing out exam certificates right, left and centre this week at Sweet Symphony – one of our favourite parts of the job! We never put any pressure on any of our Students to sit exams. That’s not the point of learning to play a musical instrument. But exams do provide a handy focus
