    Music Department

    In addition to the free individual taster lessons being offered on either piano, guitar or drums, the Music department are now happy to offer taster lessons on voice, ukulele, recorder, saxophone and oboe as well. This will give your child an opportunity to try out their chosen instrument with our experienced instrumental teachers before making a decision on whether to proceed with weekly lessons. This will be on a first come first served basis and once email confirmation has been received, your child will then have their free taster lesson. If interested or you require more information on the instrumental programme, please email pconte@brightoncollegealain.ae.

    The Music Department is also pleased to announce that Ms Rosa Aguila will be joining us as a voice, ukulele, recorder, saxophone, oboe and Little Mozarts teacher. She has been a voice instructor for a number of years in the UAE, and has worked in various British schools in the region. Many of her students have achieved distinction in their ABRSM voice exams, and have demonstrated a high level of musicianship performing in different art schools in the country.
