    What an amazing time my daughter has when having her guitar lessons. Mario is very patient with kids...my daughter is 8 and had no experience. ...but NOW, she plays guitar with so much confidence. After 8 weeks of lessons she now knows how to even Tune her own guitar, and she is playing 3 songs already. .....What a wow experience....I'd recommend him to anyone. ..

    Do I need my own guitar before I can start learning?

    Another popular question that gets thrown my way is should a beginner guitarist purchase their own guitar when deciding to take classes? My answer is always a resounding… YES. Let me explain: I do understand that people are afraid to cough up money and purchase a guitar. They are afraid that they might not ‘take’ to it and will end up quitting. With that being said, I’m here to tell you that in order to really give guitar playing a shot, you need your own guitar.Learning how to play is 20% cla...

    Amazing Results

    04-03-2016 by Kate Barbosa

    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.

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.

    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.

    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.

    Just wanted to say a heartfelt thanks for all your efforts during the course of you teaching me. I still cannot believe that I played to an audience last night! Thank you for inspiring and encouraging me. You have played such an important part of my journey this year and I will always be truly grateful to you. 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!

    Piano Forte = Greatness

    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.
