Launched in 1997, Music School International is dedicated to giving children the best of education, which is why all our teachers go through a licensing test aside from their University diplomas. We have a unique curriculum based on contemporary music, which makes our classes lots of fun, yet very effective. We have specific beginner courses for children as young as 2 and through to 12. Intermediate and Advanced level courses follow beginner curriculum levels. Our classes are all age appropriate and the curriculum is specifically designed for effective group tuition and in accordance with the physical, cognitive and emotional development of each age group.

The programs are basically divided in 2 sections:

A beginner course in which all technical and musical concepts are covered through repertoire and technical finger play, exposing the student to all styles of music. This is integrated with keyboard and percussion ensembles for rhythmic development, music appreciation for the understanding of musical structure, creative awareness and the opportunity for solos and ensemble work. Concepts are cognitively stabilized through a theoretical component within the curriculum.

Students learn:

  • Aural/ Reading / Rhythmic Skills – An effective listen / sing/ play/ read approach to music ensures that all the necessary musical skills are developed simultaneously.
  • Technique – Attention to good finger technique enables the student to achieve optimum results on the piano both now and in the future.
  • Theory – Relevant examples in the lesson ensure that the student understands how to read and write music correctly as well as comprehending the symbols and terminology.
  • Performance – The student may become a confident performer both in group and as soloist, aided by peer support and the confidence that comes from regular exposure to playing in front of others.

We truly strive to develop the best musicians and that is why our teaching philosophy is very impactive:

“what you hear you sing, what you sing you play, what you play you read, what you read you write”

All skills are developed simultaneously in an unpressured and enjoyable approach and with very effective results.
