Crystal Valley Music

North Eastern company Crystal Valley Music Teaching Services offer a wide range of music and performance lessons in acoustic guitar, bass guitar, drums, keyboard, voice, ukulele, flute, clarinet, saxophone and drama. Private lessons are available, but lessons are generally run in small groups and once students reach a certain skill level they have the choice of joining a band or remaining in a core instrumental group.

Students do a mid-year and end of year performance and when invited, are able to provide entertainment in school and community activities providing entertainment. Students are taught in a fun and encouraging way with an emphasis on building skills and understanding not only in music, but also in how to work in groups, commit to their group goals and be supportive of each other.

Demonstrations are run at the beginning of the year to show students the various instruments and programs with information and enrolment forms sent home with interested students. Once the parental consent form has been returned, students are placed in a group of similar skill base or given a private time spot if requested, and the fun begins.
