    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!

Piano–Forte hosts a number of recitals each year to develop our students’ confidence in performing for an audience.

    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.

    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.

    AMAZING FACILITY

    11-02-2019 by Megan-Lee Sims

    My daughters have only been at St Francis for a week and already I can pick up that they have learnt so much in such a short period of time. The reception is amazing, the open door policy is fantastic and the teachers are angels. Geraldine has accommodated and been so understanding. This school has heart!!!!!! I will brag about St Francis to everyone I know.

    Answer from St. Francis Educare Centre on 14-02-2019:
    That's so sweet, thanks Megan-Lee. LOL, Wish you could see the picture of the two the first day, baby sitting on big sis lap both cryyyying.... Well now big sis gets up and firmly take baby sis by the hand back to her class - because big sis now have big sis tasks to do and very keen on learning! Baby sis is settling in daily and even if the lips are still pulling, she joins her peers with no much objection anymore!

    My son loves it

    17-01-2019 by Staci

    I have a 3 year old son that has been attending St Francis since the age of 5 month old. I have no issues with the creche and my son that will be 3 this year loves it there.. The teachers are loving and friendly and qualified. They are secure and the kids are safe during the day.. What I love most is that they open at 6:00am and close at 6pm and if u need your kid ti stay a lil later in the odd day you can make arrangements. It's the longest standing Crèche in strandfontein and all kids are welcome and looked after.

    Answer from St. Francis Educare Centre on 14-02-2019:
    Hi Staci On behalf of all staff especially those in baby group, thank you very much for such warm affirmation. Hope granny would not mind, but no matter how much I correct in saying: " aunty Geraldine", I am also "MAMMA" !

    My daughter has been a student of swimlab swimming school going on 2 years now. Since she has started lessons with Tanya, she has only but grown in confidence and her ability as a swimmer. Her Instructor Tanya Tyndale-Biscoe (known as Dory) is an amazing individual inside and out of the water. She is incredibly gifted when it comes to teaching children as well as adults. All her students love her and my daughter in particular looks forward to her weekly swimmimg lesson with anticipation and it is all due to her teacher, her mentor who is Dory She is excellent at keeping parents informed of their childrens progress and the only swimming instructor I have come across where she makes every child she teaches, regardless their age, comfortable in the pool and their surroundings. I highly recommend her and Swimlab to anybody, her work ethic and ability to work with people is of an extremely high quality.

    Absolutely great service from Chantel & Jannie. They definately know what they are doing. My kids love going there. After only 4 classes I saw a great improvement in both of them. Hendre is 4 & Mieke is 15 months old. Both are so much more keen to go in the water & not afraid anymore. They have a very professional calm easy way of working with our children. You guys are great! Keep up the good work & making sure our little angels are swimming & safe in the water. I would recomend them to everyone I know. Thank you.
