We deal with musicianship in a unique and fundamental way whilst learning as part of a band. Our students learn theory, ear-training, sight-reading and ensemble skills all in one place in a fun, practical and immersive way. For those interested in music-teaching methodology, we use the sol-fa ‘language’ to teach melody and harmony, pushing it beyond its conventional diatonic use all the way through to bebop language. Central to the Edara Method is the use of the voice which we use to develop students hearing in both pitch and rhythm and all our students become comfortable singing in harmony. We use the body and movement as a reference point for all rhythmic work to develop time-feel and independence, though in a different way to the Kodaly and Dalcroze methods you may have come across. From the very beginning there is an emphasis on time-keeping and transcription for all students and advanced students learn to improvise by ear and arrange whilst developing their instrumental skills to a high level. We are open to all instrumentalists and introduce students to a broad spectrum of music and, though we are slightly angled towards the discipline of playing groove-based music (pop, jazz, and other music of african origin) our course is of much benefit to all musicians. Please see some of our fantastic testimonials from fellow teachers, musicians, students and parents and take a minute to look around the site.
