Piano, cello and music theory lessons in Swansea
Learn the piano, cello, or music theory under the guidance of Alida and other skilled tutors with ChromaMusic. We offer lessons for both children and adults.
Alida has been teaching piano, keyboard, cello and music theory for over 20 years and loves to see pupils grow in their musical ability.
All pupils are encouraged to develop confidence and musicality, whether for their own enjoyment, to play in ensembles or to go on to study music professionally. We are very proud of past pupils who have acquired a skill for life, some of whom have gone on to study music at university and music college and are now teaching and working professionally.
We frequently hold concerts in which our pupils perform as well.
We offer lessons from beginners (pre-grade 1) up to advanced (grade 8) in piano/keyboard, cello, and music theory. We teach both kids and adults.
Lessons are weekly and generally follow school terms. We will arrange a regular timeslot.
We also offer group lessons.
Fees are payable monthly in advance. Individual lessons are £16.00 per half-hour, £32.00 per hour. Group lessons differ.
Please note that fees cannot be reimbursed if pupils cancel or miss lessons, but we will try to rearrange the lesson at another time.
We regularly hold small concerts, where pupils can perform what they've learnt in front of family and friends.
Performing is optional, however we strongly recommend it as pupils find it a brilliant experience!
Teaching materials are designed to suit the age, ability and interests of the pupil.
Alongside course books, pupils are encouraged to learn to play music from whichever genres they are interested in e.g. classical, pop, worship, Disney, musicals etc.
Graded examinations are entirely optional but can be a useful way of developing skills and musicianship, and gaining a recognised certificate.
We enter candidates for the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM).
A typical lesson
After catching up, we will begin with scale practice, then play a piece you have been working on. The teacher will provide tips and help whilst playing, and focus on any challenging parts.
There will also be opportunities for improvising, composing, theory work, and exam practice.
Most of all, we will have fun!

"After having a few lessons with Alida and Chroma Music I have found an enthusiasm for the piano and music theory that I never knew I had.
She is patient and enthusiastic and encourages every ability within you. I can now play tunes with both hands."
