The music lessons are fantastic, organised and fun!
[my daughter] is absolutely thriving at the Mae Collard School of Music.
Mae Collard allows kids of all ages and standards to feel like a star and perform in front of a crowd. Not only do the kids have fun, it brings out their confidence, boosts their self esteem and provides them with ever lasting memories.
I love my piano lessons. Not only am I improving my music skills and having fun, I'm learning about myself as a learner, and that's really helpful as a teacher.
'Mae offers a service so unique and relevant...that involves all things I love - new people, meditation, singing, tea and chocolate!'
'Mae is just a marvellous teacher, very encouraging and adaptable. I would highly recommend her to others. I wouldn’t change music schools because I’ve found the best!'
'You care about the students...you are incredibly knowledgeable and put their health and strength of their voice first.'
'I have been taking voice lessons with Mae since early this year and I couldn't be happier! Each lesson is so rewarding...and I have learnt so many new skills and techniques in the eight months since I began. Mae is so enthusiastic and encouraging and very passionate about healthy singing technique. She takes great pride in her students and is so keen to help you achieve your goals...Mae is also just such a lovely, warm person. I feel entirely comfortable with her which means I can fully partake in the lesson without feeling self-conscious or embarrassed...I joined the TLC choir...and it too has been a wonderful experience. I can think of no better way to spend a Tuesday evening than to sing beautiful songs, eat chocolate, relax, chat and laugh with a bunch of great women who love to do the same. It has been a wonderful adjunct to my lessons as well. I cannot recommend Mae highly enough!'
'I have been very impressed by how tailored and responsive your lessons are. It is lovely to see my children pursue their individual musical passions, and progress at their own rate, rather than be tied to a particular approach or timeline...to see them develop mastery and joy for its own sake. It’s no surprise that they love their lessons with you.'
'I consider myself so lucky to have found Mae Collard. She is a highly qualified teacher...and has brought my children along so far in such a short time. It’s great to see children grasp important fundamentals, such as Estill voice training and vocal health, and grow rapidly in competence and confidence. She is also personally delightful – kind, encouraging, and infectiously enthusiastic. She has an incredible knack for tapping into individual children’s passions and supports them whatever their approach or challenges. Lessons are tailored to each child...and thoughtful suggestions are made that really help children overcome any nerves to learn to love music and performance. Mae is a gem, and my young son and daughter adore their lessons with her.'
