„I have enjoyed running a Yamaha Music School for 33 years. So, most of my working life. I have no regrets whatsoever and would do exactly the same thing again, if I had the chance. Yamaha has moved with the times, and kept in step with the changes. That is one more reason why I still enjoy teaching Yamaha Courses. I appreciate the support from the Yamaha instructor team, who have made it possible to provide the very highest standard of teaching and professionalism. Many businesses struggle to keep going long-term, and I give full credit to the support that Yamaha has given me to have kept going into the 4th decade. “

„We are passionate about teaching music and always strive to do the right thing for our pupils. However, even with the best of intentions, you can only pass on knowledge from your personal (and often limited) experience. Being a Yamaha Music School, gives us the confidence to know that we are steering our pupils in the right direction. If we need help, advice or training, Yamaha is there for us. Their ethos towards education is exemplary and access to their tried-and-tested curriculum can yield phenomenal results. Our pupils understand that a truly accomplished musician requires a lot more than just hopping from one grade to another and we are proud to have had many success stories over the years “
