GWA-Etoy Music Academy offers individual instrumental and vocal lessons to students of age 6 and higher.
The Academy provides a convenient, secure, inspiring place for your child(ren) to learn to play and/or continue their current studies. Students are taught by high-level professional instructors who bring a wealth of practical, real-world experience in their subject area, are pedagogically trained and remain actively engaged in professional work.
Courses are provided at beginner, intermediate and advanced levels to students both within and outside of GEMS.
There will be performance opportunities throughout the year and we encourage all students to participate as these help develop important performance and presentation skills as well as self-confidence. The joy of making music is commensurate with the effort put into it. Daily practice is strongly recommended to ensure regular progress.
