Our Teachers

Our Philosophy

The Arella School provides Piano lessons for children and adults; and Music, Dance and Drama classes for children.

Piano lessons

Our Piano lessons are open to students of all ages. Our lessons are flexible, offering a variety of lesson lengths as suited to the student. We tailor our lessons to individual student’s needs and interests. There is not a set repertoire for students to learn from, instead Piano techniques and music theory are taught using music that is of interest to the student.

Music, Dance and Drama Classes

We believe creativity is important and that every child should have the opportunity to learn creative skills. Our classes help to build children’s confidence, improve their communication skills, and increase their imagination and creativity. We run lessons in a safe and nurturing environment with the focus on learning through fun, not pressure. These classes are open to all children, with no auditions.

Students who take lessons with The Arella School will have the opportunity to perform in School shows and concerts. These performances are completely optional. Students will still benefit from classes and learn skills even if they do not want to perform in our shows.

Lessons

Our Piano lessons are taught by Becca. Lessons can be as short as 15 mins for young beginners to up to an hour for adults. Lessons are held at New Parks Methodist Church on Tuesday evenings and Wednesday evenings.

The repertoire/curriculum is very flexible and fits around the interests and abilities of the student.

Our 90 minute Performing Arts class runs on a Saturday morning. This class is a mixture of Music, Dance and Drama.

The music section of each class is a mixture of singing and other musical activities such as rhythm games to improve beat competency. Children will sing songs from a variety of musical styles, develop the ability to sing in harmony and improve their overall listening skills.

During the dance section Children will learn a mixture of dance styles. Children have the opportunity to help create dance routines, and suggest choreography to add to routines created by our Dance teacher.

In the drama section we use a mixture of drama games and acting activities that will help to develop confidence and imagination. Children will the opportunity to improvise and create their own scenes and skits, as well as acting from a script.

Our new Performing Arts Class for children with Autism starts on Saturday 12th November at 12 noon.

Similar to our current Performing Arts Class, but tailored to the specific needs of children on the Autistic Spectrum. These classes will run for 45 minutes and have a smaller group of children.

What to Wear

Dance and Drama Classes

We do not have a set uniform that children are required to wear, however they must be able to easily move around in whatever clothes they wear to class.

We suggest that children wear

Please ensure that your child does not wear jeans or a skirt/dress – they will not be able to fully participate in lessons as these will be too restrictive.
