Music Theory Group Lessons
To fulfil students’ musical education, we offer classes in Theory and General Musicianship taught by Deilwen Hughes.
We encourage everyone to come to these sessions as learning about music theory can help to strengthen all aspects of an all rounded successful musician. Passing Grade 5 theory is compulsory before attempting to sit higher practical exams, and we advise everyone to start early.
We currently offer a series of 10 theory classes each term, and have classes for beginners, intermediate level and for those working towards the Grade 5 exam.
Tuition is given in purpose built teaching rooms at our main centre in Galeri Caernarfon. All tuition spaces have upright pianos including Kawaii, Yamaha, Kemble, and Rieger Kloss. Advanced pianists are also given the opportunity to perform on a Steinway Grand Piano at formal CGWM Concerts held in Galeri Caernarfon’s Theatre. At our Denbigh branch tuition is given in the main auditorium and two smaller rooms which have pianos.
Other instruments provided for tuition include:
- Lever and Pedal Harps
- Drum Kits & Marimba
- Amps are provided where needed for Guitar tuition
For tuition on any other instrument, students are expected to bring their own. Please contact us if this is not possible.
