The Number 7 Music minis is a class designed for 5-7 year olds who have shown a keen interest in music but are too young to join the main academy.

The class focusses on key musical elements such as rhythm, timing and melody through fun and interactive music-based games. We also use the ukulele to put these skills into practice.

As well as huge amount of fun the minis enjoy in their classes, they also have the chance to open the show at our Summer and Christmas performances where they join a band and perform in front of an audience!

We hope that you find this website a useful introduction to what we do. If your child wants to learn how to play (and is up for the hard work and practice involved) come and see us soon.

Teaching philosophy

Beginners, intermediate and advanced

We believe children learn best when high quality teaching is combined with the regular opportunity to play together in a band and to perform live in front of an audience.

Our school gigs give you and their friends a regular chance to come and watch them play and to appreciate what they have achieved.

A rounded (and employable!) musician can play in any genre and therefore we draw upon a wide variety of styles throughout our courses, introducing influential artists throughout the decades to help our students to understand the ancestry behind what they are listening to today and what they might create in the future.

Between us, we have many years of teaching experience giving us a wealth of knowledge about how children learn…

Good habits and accurate technique builds a much better platform for success than learning fast and muddling through, so we teach extensively around the Rockschool syllabus, focusing on demonstration followed by fun and varied exercises during which our tutors give tailored guidance to each and every student.
