Lessons usually take place in blocks of ten, in each of the three school terms. Lessons are also available over the Summer. For students who are at public school, lessons are during exeats and holidays.
Potential students need to be happy at this stage that Fergus Black has an approach which they would find sympathetic - he prefers to meet prospective students, and to hear them perform and give them feedback - a kind of taster lesson. Usually this will last 20-30 minutes.
If you are already having lessons, please bring a piece you can perform (not something you have just started work on).
For private students, Fergus gives preference to:
• post-Grade 5 students in Piano or Singing
• A-level music students with advanced instrumental skills who need to improve their keyboard skills ( there is a page to view: Teaching Keyboard Skills to A-level students)
• able students whatever age or level
Other than that, he operates a waiting list.
