girl playing piano

Our Director of Music, Mr. James Catton, offers private one-on-one piano lessons during school hours and after school (Wednesday to Friday only) for those wanting to learn this most wonderful instrument. Home visits are also possible.

The best ages to start are generally 5 to 11, but that’s not a rule. It’s really down to the student having the time and patience to want to learn and enjoy the process, as well as having good dexterity and motor skills.

Please contact James for a free trial assessment regarding your child’s ability. No obligations are sought, and this assessment can be done during the school day.

Please take a look at his website for more information: www.jamescatton.com. Alternatively, you may reach him at (919) 889-1995.

Application Instructions:  With questions and interest, email James directly at jamescatton3@yahoo.com. Please place “Piano Lessons” in the subject line.
