The Primo School of Music is tucked away on the top floor of the Mansion House at Insole Court in Llandaff, Cardiff. In addition to being arguably one of the most inspiring locations to have a piano or singing lesson in Britain, our teachers and music students can make as much noise as they like without disturbing anyone!
There’s ample, safe parking, an excellent cafe, beautiful gardens for children to roam and explore and recently we had a new lift installed to bring you to the top floor of this wonderful Grade II listed Victorian building without having to traipse up the ‘servant’s staircase’.
We believe that everyone enjoys learning with others so all of our activities take place in small, well organised groups whether it’s an advanced piano group with three teenage students or the Insole Court Community Choir which rehearses each week with more than forty adult members.
In addition to having excellent facilities and resources, a music school is only every going to be as good as the teachers who take the lessons. We have a small, experienced team of freelance teachers (currently seven) who are freelance, who continue to develop their careers both at the school and in the outside world. You can view their biographies here.
We currently offer the following activities (click on an activity for further details):
- Piano Lessons – 5yrs+
- Primo Children’s Choir 6yrs+
- Insole Court Community Choir (an adult choir run in association with Insole Court)
Because we run so many piano groups, we have lots of options for reorganising students to get the right children learning together. We also spend a lot of time working on how to support children’s learning at home with hundreds of useful videos accessible via our practice app which mean that students are always able to get assistance when practicing at home.
We take what we do extremely seriously and think that we offer well-structured lessons delivered by very experienced and inspiring teachers, but don’t take our word for it, check out our Facebook Reviews and see what some of our parents think. Our current score is 4.9 out of 5 in 17 reviews.
