    Amazing School

    03-04-2017 by Justin Muthusamy

    I registered for the 2017 year for my 2 year old daughter. It is a really amazing atmosphere to be in for her and she really enjoys the friendly teachers and open play spaces. The activities are really varied and enjoyable. As a parent i also connected with the fact that the school gives the kids a freedom to explore and learn on their own rather than following a rigid programme. The teachers Lebo and Patience are amazing with the children and very patient and understanding. They also take time to explain and educate them while giving them the freedom just be kids.

    Little Explorers Club

    A small boutique play group for 2 and 3 year olds. Lovely big garden where toddlers can use their imagination to explore and play outdoors. A fun a way to introduce children to the joys of playing and exploring in nature.

    Little Explorers Club looks like a place full of laughter, love, fun and entertainment. I am sure any child would thoroughly enjoy this preschool.

    Holiday Club

    25-10-2016 by Claudia

    Little Explorers is a great place for our little to explore and learn about the wonders of our world. The facilities have been thoughtfully put together to encourage this wonderment coupled with a beautiful garden for little legs to run! The team was so great with my boys (2&3yo) and they thoroughly enjoyed holiday club. Can't wait for the next one!

    Answer from Little Explorers Club on 16-11-2016:
    Thanks Claudia, we loved happy your special boys. I'm glad they enjoyed the approach and had fun at Holiday Club. Wish you lived closer so they could come to Play School :)

    Love Reggio & Little Explorers

    25-10-2016 by Michelle Paice

    As a fan of the Reggio Emilia Method, Little Explorers has an immediate and exciting Reggio Feel. The classroom environment is creative, warm, inviting, highly tactile and stimulating. The expansive garden is an inspirational and magical space where little people can embark on daily adventures and be inspired to do, what they do best … learn through play! The teaching style is warm, empathetic, gentle and nurturing…..

    Answer from Little Explorers Club on 16-11-2016:
    Hi Michelle, Thank you for your delightful review! We loved having your little boy at holiday Club and hope to see you next year.

    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. I’ve had many students, (children, teenagers & adults) who initially did not believe they would be able to perform in front of an audience of strangers. It brings me great joy to help these students conquer their fears & achieve something ...

    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.

    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...
