About English Music Academy
English Music Academy is a dynamic organisation dedicated to bringing the finest learning opportunities to young musicians. With eight years of experience devising and promoting music courses, our focus is towards excellence using individual practice methods and chamber music as the key to quality performance.
We believe in a holistic and practical approach to music learning linking instrumental work, singing, theory, sight reading and technique to illuminate and inform. Using this method, students quickly understand how all aspects of musicality are interrelated and form a finished work, and how this feeds into performance, personal practice and group rehearsals. Skills taught are transferable to any instrument and any piece of music. The whole process of learning music becomes more manageable and fun, giving the student greater ownership and trust in their performance experience.

We offer two distinctive courses specifically designed for schools who value instrumental and vocal music: CHAMBER MUSIC and the MUSIC EXAM BOOTCAMP. These courses can be delivered as 1-day, 2-day or 4-day courses and can be opened to schools local to our host venue.

Our courses link the pieces covered in our ensembles with the Elements sessions during the courses and students will be given a comprehensive guide to each of these aspects of music: rhythm, meter, pitch, melody, phrasing, harmony, tempo, dynamics and performance skills.

A key outcome of our courses is to show these should be applied in personal practice. We will cover ways to make sight reading and aural skills more achievable, and all relevant aspects of music theory, as well as giving advice about performing with an accompanist and in ensembles, thus creating a ‘complete picture’ as well as empowering students who are preparing for exams.

English Music Academy collaborates with other educational organisations to provide bespoke performance courses for all musicians but with a particular emphasis on young musicians aged 8-18 years. Our aim is to develop links with educational organisations, learn about their existing music provision and offer courses or programmes that give added value to the existing provision. Developing and sustaining long-term relationships is at the core of EMA’s philosophy.
