Following their success of their first term of music lessons, Lamp House Music, based in Haddington, have announced a new Autumn Schedule with extra children’s classes and new adult’s evening classes.

In addition to their already successful Saturday Guitar Club and Drum Classes for children age 10+ (both of which have had additional sessions added to them) the business are now offering children’s classes in Keyboards, Vocals, as well as a Woodwind Ensemble.

The Woodwind Ensemble invites young players to be introduced to ensemble playing in a relaxed, informal environment, to gain confidence in their own abilities and technique, as well as an introduction to directing and conducting.

For Adults, new evening Guitar Classes are on offer, as are Vocal Classes that promise to teach proper breath control, correct vocal technique, picking the right song for your voice and most importantly for participants to enjoy singing.

Lamp House Music pride themselves on their local, professional tutors,  “We’ve welcomed in a younger generation of music teacher, fresh and enthusiastic, but still qualified and very experienced – we find our students, particularly the children, respond to them very well,” said Martin Simpson, spokesperson for Lamp House Music.

“We had a great response to the initial classes that we held last term, therefore we wanted to offer more and provide more variety.  We’re up for diversifying as much as possible and we’re always open to suggestions – if people ask for it, we’ll try to set it up.”

The lessons on the Autumn programme are class style but with a maximum of five pupils in each lesson,

“Our reasoning behind class-style lessons it to keep the cost down for people attending, we want our music classes to be as accessible as possible, plus we believe music should have a social aspect, which the groups offer, however we do also offer one-to-one tuition for those who want it.”

Lamp House Music are hosting an Open Doors Day on Saturday 25th August from 11am to 4pm.  Anyone interested in classes, meeting the tutors or in seeing around the building will be made to feel very welcome.
