The Hugo Lambrechts Music Centre offers specialised one-on-one music tuition in all symphonic instruments as well as piano, singing, harp and guitar. Theory tuition for all grade levels and ages and Basic Music Education classes are available in group class settings. Participation in an orchestra, relative to the learner’s abilities, is an integral part of their music education and training and it is therefore a compulsory aspect of being a student at the Music Centre. Other smaller ensembles are facilitated by all the teachers.
Violin / Viola
Trombone & Euphonium
Clarinet & Saxophone
Oboe & Bassoon
If you wish to not purchase an instrument right away, we have instruments available for rental. This way, the student can try out the instrument for a few lessons before making a final decision to buy one. Contact the school to check availability etc.
Basic Music Education
Basic Music Education classes are offered, in a group class setting, to young learners who are not yet ready to start on an instrument and those whose musical aural awareness is underdeveloped. These classes develop the aural awareness (pitch recognition and basic rhythmic skills) of the learners while introducing all the instruments offered at the Music Centre. This short-term class prepares the learner for an audition into the instrumental programme of the Music Centre.
Music Theory is offered at the Music Centre for all grade levels for the Unisa and Associate Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) examinations. These lessons take place once a week in a group class. Sizes of the classes will depend on the demand at the time
Once a learner is deemed ready he/she will be required to join one of the many orchestras at the Music Centre. Students from other teachers and schools outside of the Music Centre may also participate in these orchestras.
