    I originally enrolled Nicola into RSPA because she was a very shy girl and walking onto stage would put her into an absolute state and she would cry for the entire performance. She wasn’t able to look at a person in their eyes and state her name! She has been attending now for just over a year and to be honest I wasn’t really sure what exactly she does in the class, but 2 days ago she told me at church and at school they are holding an event called ‘show your talent’ and she’s decided to do a dance!!!! I just about fell over, my child wanting to volunteer to do a dance on her own! I can’t think of any other thing then this is the work of RSPA. She’s really come out of her shell and her confidence has really grown, so a huge thank you to you.

    A huge thanks to you as well for your tireless efforts in ensuring the students were well prepared to put their best foot forward:)And also for the constant reminders and notes etc so we parents remain on queue with the students commitments. Nishi Singh, mother Kiara Padayachee Another awesome production, and having 2 casts must have had some challenging moments. It was great to see some familiar faces and to see how they have grown in their performances. The unfortunate lighting hitch on Saturday, proved how disciplined your students are.

You’re all rock stars!!! Emma Dunk, Mother Ethan Dunk Thank you for preparing Cara for this huge challenge! I have seen her self-confidence improve on so many levels because of the exposure you have given through your Theatre School over these last 5 years. Not only have you been involved in her development as her Drama Teacher.

    Firstly I would like to say a huge thank you for a fun-tastic Summer Camp. I have never shared with you just how introverted Emilie was as a young child. The RSPA team have been very instrumental in her personal growth. For that I thank you. You have contributed to her being the fierce, determined, hard working and strong young woman she is today.In the words of Julie Andrews, ‘Sound of Music’, “Notjhing comes from nothing, nothing ever will”.You treat all your students like adults and offer them the utmost respect which you expect in return.

    Teaching & playing the piano are among my biggest passions in life. At Piano–Forte, our biggest goal is guiding students to become the best pianists they can be while having lots of fun! Founded in 2013 & based in Musgrave Durban, we are a modern, dynamic & proudly diverse piano studio, teaching students from various walks of life aged 6 to 60! Students play & explore a wide variety of musical genres (classical, jazz, Bollywood, Latin, worship & more), however our biggest focus is on contemporary ... Read more music. Piano–Forte hosts a number of recitals each year to develop our students’ confidence in performing for an audience. We also encourage all students to share their music with others by performing at school events, recitals & competitions.

It brings me great joy to help these students conquer their fears & achieve something ...

    Learning

    25-02-2019 by Nina Basson

    After leaving my previous teacher due to unforeseen circumstances, I joined Piano-Forte with Manishka Bhogal as my teacher, in May 2018. My first piece was “Clouds” by Pam Wedgwood, after a few of lessons Manishka said that it would be great to have that piece played at the end of the year recital. I was very doubtful; I had not mastered any of the pieces that I had previously worked on. One of my difficulties was timing, but she said that my timing would be good in 2 to 3 months. She gave me easier pieces so that I could build a solid foundation, I feel that I made great progress throughout the year. It is specially gratifying to have developed fairly good timing. Before the end of the year I had mastered “Clouds” and had worked on many other pieces. Manishka always comes up with strategies that work, she seems to know exactly how to get her students where she wants them to be. I had not planned to move to another school but am glad that I did.

    5-star lessons

    My daughter (aged 13) has attended lessons with Manishka for about a year. Manishka's professionalism, patience and amazing talent is the reason for my daughter's confidence and growth in playing the piano/keyboard. I would highly recommend Piano-Forte.

You have a phenomenal gift (the Queen medley was awesome!) and I hope that you will continue to teach and inspire others the way you have done for me!

    My daughter having no background to playing the piano or reading music started at Piano Forte in February 2017 - she can now read music from the prescribed books and convert that to beautiful melodic music on her keyboard. Manishka developed her self confidence by encouraging her students, instils patience in them to learn a piece and appreciate the essence of Music as a whole.
