Bio

The McIver Music Academy

Philosophy

To have fun with music and develop a lifelong affinity for music in its myriad forms.

My name is Rosemary McIver. I am a registered and qualified school teacher as well as a specialized music teacher with over 35 years experience.

The Academy offers a range of skills including piano, keyboard, ukulele, junior and senior choirs, beginners musical theatre and adult tuition. Lessons include aural tuition, theory and practical with levels ranging from beginners to diploma (Royal Schools and Trinity College).

As an introduction I offer a pre – school music club for 2 – 5 year olds. From┬áthere they can follow their interest into any area of the above skills. All students participate in annual music schools and concerts and where appropriate relevant exams.

Teaching Info

Skill and technique work form an integral part of a lesson. Aural and sight reading tuition help to not only create a pianist but a musician. The enjoyment of pieces, gives the student opportunities to put these into practice.

I like to provide lots of opportunities for my students to have fun with piano duets, trios, accompanying and performance skills as they are an excellent way to consolidate students skills.

Theory is an important teaching skill and I feel the knowledge of it, is crucial to the understanding of music and its performance.
