Students will use a custom written workbook and receive a certificate of completion once they have finished.

This is an exciting option that opens up the world of music to all primary aged kids.

Learn to Play Violin or Viola!

The violin instrument, also known as the fiddle, has a deep and rich history, dating all the way back to the 16th century. It has been used in a wide variety of music genres including Baroque, classical, jazz, folk, bluegrass and country and still plays a big role in modern music as well. Genres like pop, rock, and indie rock all feature this sublime instrument.

At Ignite Arts Academy, we can now offer students violin (or viola; a slightly larger violin) lessons with our new instructor Anne Speed. Anne will guide students with her fun and flexible approach, tailoring lessons to suit each individual’s, or groups, abilities. She makes sure that students are progressing at a steady rate, but also ensures that enjoyment and fun is a big part of her lesson teaching plan.

Anne teaches in either a small group or in individual lessons, with students 5 years – to adults of any age. Parents are welcome to sit in on lessons too. Lessons suit all abilities; from beginner right through to Grade 8 Associated Board of the Royal School of Music level, and can be tailored to suit each students’ goals and requirements.

During lessons with Anne, students will develop the fundamental skills of violin/viola, while learning to play with grace and fluidity.

Offering contemporary vocal classes for all age groups. Our approach is to provide a well rounded vocal education utilising several methods to achieve this goal...

Group voice lessons offer an excellent introduction to vocal study. Group lessons are not just for beginners. Classes include exercises that help to develop a healthy vocal technique, expand range, build power, control, and over time, a beautiful singing tone. Students also learn songs and sing them together, and as they become comfortable, they are encouraged to sing individually in front of the group. Group lessons provide an opportunity for singing in front of other people on a regular basis, building performance skills, and gaining confidence as a performer. This is particularly beneficial for long-term students who have already developed some vocal technique and want to go the next step as a singer. All singers will benefit from working on exercises, learning songs, and developing performance skills through group lessons.

Individual voice lessons are advisable for students with extended vocal goals, or specific technical isues. The focus will be on individual technique and development.

Fundamentals will give the student a good understanding in basic theory, rhythm training and aural development.
