Our values are centred on excellence in all the areas in which we operate. Strawberry Music practitioners are described as Teaching Artists as we strongly believe that musicians with professional performance experience make some of the best teachers.
We feel it is vital that young people have a ‘real world’ experience of music-making in which performance is a key activity. Our lessons for both individuals and whole classes never seek to categorise music, we simply believe in good music, whatever the genre.
Our ‘First Access’ lessons are supported by online materials that provide music and backing tracks to encourage practice between weekly lessons.
We believe strongly in the power of music to change lives. To this end we seek to provide a balance of technical control and musical awareness that can serve a child across a lifetime of music. It is always our aim to encourage musical inquisitiveness and an intelligent approach to music-making that will assist pupils to become independent learners.
