What We Teach

The Hugo Lambrechts Music Centre offers specialised one-on-one practical music tuition in all symphonic instruments as well as piano, voice, harp and guitar. Music Theory and Basic Music Education classes are available in group class settings. Participation in orchestras and ensembles, relative to the learner’s ability, is an integral component of the music education and training programme.

Music Theory

Music Theory is offered in weekly group classes. The size of each class will depend on the demand at the time. Curriculum followed includes UNISA and ABRSM Theory Grades 1 to 6.

Basic Music Education

Basic Music Education group classes are offered to young learners who are not yet ready to start on an instrument. These classes develop the aural awareness (pitch recognition and basic rhythmic skills) of the learners. Participants are also introduced to the basic elements of music and all the instruments offered at the Music Centre. This short-term tuition programme prepares a learner for an audition into the instrumental programme of the Music Centre.
