We provide practical musical training at our studio in eMalahleni (Witbank). We do so by offering lessons for guitar, drums, keyboard, vocals and violin. Music lesson sessions are divided into 2 separate categories, namely ‘Basic Skill Training’, and ‘Intermediate to Advanced Training’.
We advise that students who are starting out on a particular instrument start by attending the Basic Skill Training sessions. Students who have already been playing their instrument and /or have been receiving training for at least a few months can look into attending the Intermediate to Advanced Training. We also identify students from the Basic Skill Training sessions who we feel should move over to the higher level of training; this will be done on a regular basis as the sessions go on and as the students are evaluated. Basic Skill Training is done in the form of 1 hour group lessons which take place once a week. Intermediate to Advanced Training classes are done in the form of 1 hour lessons once a week in small group classes. Violin lessons follow a different structure due to the technical difficulty of learning to play the violin. Violin lessons are done individually (except when it is a catch-up lesson then it may be done with another student) and are 30 minutes long, lessons take place once per week.
Our teaching style focuses more on practical music training with theory being a secondary focus. This enables parents and student to see substantial progress in a short period of time which increases student motivation and enthusiasm. We also have a strong focus on developing confidence in each student which intern promotes music as a Performing Art, rather than just a hobby.
Basic Skill Training – R700 per student per month.
Intermediate to Advanced Training – R850 per student per month.
Once-off Enrolment Fee of R350.
Fee discounts are given to students that make upfront annual payments.
As part of the Masson Music teaching approach focused on promoting music as a performing art, we host Music Nights in eMalahleni (Witbank) featuring our top students in a band or solo act. The aim of these Music Nights is to build confidence in our students and give them the opportunity to apply what we teach them, i.e. “How to play in a live band” or “Perform in front of a crowd on stage”.
