    My Singing with Jeanne

    20-03-2016 by Perter Rea

    I joined Jeanne around 5 years ago to scratch a mid life itch to rekindle an interest in singing. Starting from a position of very rough round the edges encouragement and some expert tuition from Jeanne has brought me improvement and confidence. I really enjoy participating in both choir groups and doing some solo work as well. I am having a blast with a great bunch of people and I now firmly believe singing is so good for health and for soul.

    2nd term piano 50% off

    Validity: from 03 Jul 2018 to 30 Dec 2018

    For beginners to learn piano here at PIANO PATHWAYS in Feilding, or for students transferring from other towns, here is an offer to encourage you to stick with tuition for two full terms. Your second term of 10 weeks will only be billed at half-fees! This time frame gives you the chance to fully investigate what's on offer for learning piano and/or theory, before deciding if your time has been worthwhile. This is particularly useful for a beginner, because a comprehensive approach is not confined to reading notes in the tutor book... it takes some weeks to be introduced to all the aspects on offer -- listening games, games for naming keys, creating compositions, match-up activities, interactive computer quizzes, rote tunes, instant 5-finger tunes, improvising, duets with the teacher.... It would be rewarding to experience each of these. Simply mention this offer as you book in for lessons and it will be noted in the attendance register to have your second account adjusted. Consumables may still need to be billed. PIANO PATHWAYS is at 8 Kimbolton Road, near the Feilding CDB. Phone 323 3929.
