Teaching Info

This is your musical journey. It is our job at О̄CSM to guide you and help you build skills that allow you to learn effectively and independently. Every student has the opportunity to self direct their own learning. It is not our job, or place, to tell you what you should and shouldn’t be learning.

As a student at О̄CSM, you can expect to have an enjoyable time in every session, and to take steps out into the wider world of music through the likes of songwriting, improvisation and even live performances!

We help you set weekly goals and tasks to help build confidence and skills, but also ensure our lessons offer enough substance and guidance that you will progress without relying on practice alone.

О̄CSM offers and encourages its students to participate in globally recognised, London College of Music exams, but it is by no means compulsory.
