   ''Our son has piano and guitar lessons weekly, and we are thrilled with the progress he is making, as well as how much he enjoys learning both of these instruments. His tutors have the balance right between encouragement and discipline, in order to help him achieve his best. We are delighted with this academy, and our next son is about to start lessons next term because he wants to do what he sees his big brother doing!''

 - Claire Clinton


    ''My 5 year old son seems to be enjoying his piano lessons and is making really good progress. The staff is very warm and the kids work hard for them. The place has a lovely atmosphere - very open and encouraging. The performance afternoons are a great way of getting the kids used to an audience and it's nice for the parents of the little ones to see how their kids are doing. We are very pleased. FMA feels as if it's contributing to the area - not to a select minority.'' 

 - Ellie Phillips


    ''The enthusiasm and work that these professionals are giving at FMA is outstanding. They constantly bring different events accessible to all, always trying to create a relaxed and open atmosphere.'' 

 -  Carlos Robles                                                          

    ''Since I have been taking lessons at the First Musical Academy my confidence and voice have improved so much. I have tried many teachers over the years. My teacher at FMA is, without question, the best. I love my singing lessons and I look forward to them every week!''  

 - Amber Hunt 


   ''I found the tutors friendly and patient. You can learn at your own pace and choose your own music to play. The organizers are flexible and have a real personal touch. As well as progressing there is an emphasis on putting you at ease and just having fun which is what learning music should be all about.'' 

 - Philip Fernadez


   ''My 5 year old son really looks forward to 'Music for the Little Ones'. He sings the songs all week. I have been impressed at how the basic music concepts are being taught - for example galloping round the room and walking slowly for rhythm and drawing a line going up and down to illustrate pitch. My son loves the lessons so much.''  

 - Cathy Booth
