We advise every new student to come for a consultation lesson in which you will be able to discuss and set goals with your tutor. Students are given the opportunity to sit practical exams of the ABRSM or Trinity College London examination Boards.
By becoming a CGWM student, you will benefit from having various performance opportunities throughout the year at informal concerts such as ‘Llwyfan Cerdd’ where family members and friends are welcome to come along to enjoy your progress. Students are encouraged and supported to take part at these concerts from an early stage.
