I have yet to come across a better method
despite many years in music education
I have recently joined Forte as a private and classroom teacher. After having spent 4 years teaching in London, which included numerous teacher training events, I can say with confidence that I have learned more in few weeks with Forte than I did in a couple of years in London. The teaching methodology is incredibly well organised and thought through to the finest detail. Classes are delivered in a natural, fun and engaging way that is perfected suited to the age range. If you are seeking classroom music lessons then I have yet to come across a better method despite many years in music education. Highly recommended!

Captured by Your Fun Enthusiastic Energy and Entertainment
To Kristina, Jungle Music Friends Molly, Gabriel, Emma, Isabelle and Emily, and the Staff.
Just wanted to say a very big thank you. Poppy has thoroughly enjoyed the classes. Her enjoyment has been captured by your fun enthusiastic energy and entertainment.
Poppy is going to miss the classes and the friends she has made. Unfortunately I am working odd shifts and will be difficult to commit each week.
Poppy will miss Bruno and the fun she always had at Jungle Music.
Thank you once again and please say farewell to everyone there. Please give an extra hug from Bruno to everyone from Poppy x & Steve x
Exam Centre With Excellent Facilities
As a mature candidate I shouldn't have been so wound up by the prospect of an exam! I expect that I didn't come over as confident and focused, everything went totally blank, but that's the nature of assessments. The centre staff were very helpful and I'm grateful for the cups of tea. The examiner was calm and supportive. I'm grateful for the experience, I'm sure it will help with stage fright. The exam centre has excellent facilities and is in a good location with free car parking.
Five Year Old Loves Coming
Great school with dedicated, enthusiastic staff! My 5 year old loves coming each Saturday morning!

A Great Way To Get Young Kids Involved With Music
I’d like to take the opportunity to thank all the staff at Forte who have either taught or organised my 3 kids piano lessons over a period of 10 years. It’s been fun and very enjoyable and its sad to be saying goodbye. It’s a great set up you have there and a great way to get young kids involved with music. Out of my three kids I fear that Conor will be the only one that will continue to play but I suppose 1 out of 3 ain’t bad. The other two have the skill so it’s up to them really.
Once again my thanks go to you and Jane especially and who knows maybe if we all live long enough you’ll see me back there in the future with the grandchildren.
Best Wishes from,
Lesley, Conor, Kieran and Abby
Wonderful Music School
Dear Miss Jane
Thank you for a wonderful music school
Love from Sam and Isabel
Lifelong Love of Music
Dear Miss Jane & Everyone at Forte,
Thank you so much for everything you've done for me over the years. You've taught me so much and my years at Forte will definitely lead to a lifelong love of music.
I remember singing the "lollipops" song and my dad still sings the Goodbye Song after all these years!
I'm really grateful for all the musical fun I've had and I won't forget how great my musical childhood has been!
I hope that Forte will continue being amazing for all the kids as lucky as me, and that your success only grows.
Wishing you all the best,
Teachers Are Fantastic!
I can't recommend Forte enough! My 2 year old son goes and loves it!!! Unlike a lot of music classes there is movement involved and the teachers are fantastic! Xxxxxxxx

Music Scholarship Success
Unfortunately Alice will not be returning for music lessons at Forte in September. She is leaving primary school and has been given a music scholarship at the Cathedral School. This includes music lessons at the school during the day. If it wasn't for this she would be continuing at Forte until she was 50 (her words - apparently that's really old!!). I spoke to Sarah last night and she said she would let you know - but wanted to let you know too.
It is impossible to put into words the impact that music lessons at Forte has had on Alice. Weekly lessons have been an important and happy event since she was 5. She absolutely loves music and it is simply part of her life now.
Needless to say that the scholarship would never have been possible without the fantastic lessons (piano and violin) she has had with some excellent teachers (Miss Claire, Miss Sarah, Miss Sophie G and Miss Kristina). The opportunity to play at the WMC and St Ffagans every year has made her a confident performer which has been so helpful for school performances and exams etc. She seems to take them in her stride which is a reflection of how well prepared she has been thanks to her teachers and the whole supportive Forte environment. A massive thank you to all at Forte.
Fortunately for me Seb is continuing with his piano classes as I can't imagine not making the journey to Danescourt a few times a week! I might even need to sign up for lessons myself!
To Jane & Suzanne,
Genuinely thank you both so much for everything. I feel like you've helped nurture me to become the young woman I am today......I feel like I've gone from a Caterpillar into a butterfly :-)
Lots of Love,
Thank you for all of the help this year!
Felt a Tingle of Joy and Excitement
Morning Jane, what a fab lesson... Emily was patient and fun at the same time. I’ve been feeling so low for so long but I felt a tingle of joy and excitement yesterday... woke up still hanging on to it. Thanks lovely I’ve finally made a step forward.... xxx
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all of the support you have given me over the past 11 years I've been at Forte! I have finally come to the end of one long journey but having you as my piano teacher for most of it has definitely helped shape the player I am today.
Aside from piano, I have to say thank you for being the person that inspired me to learn and play the saxophone. I still remember the day when you got up, with the other Forte teachers, at the Forte Festival in 2011 and played the saxophone! It was that moment where I became inspired to play the sax - so much that it probably played a part in achieving Distinctions in all my saxophone grades!
Anyway, thanks so much for everything and for playing a HUGE part in my musical journey!
Success Firmly Rooted in Forte
...I would like to say a sincere thank you for the work experience you were able to arrange for me during last summer- it was really helpful with my college applications. I am pleased to say that I have been granted a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music to study composition next year and I would really like Jane to know because the successes I have been having are firmly rooted in Forte! Last week I was also out in New York doing my final round of auditions for the Juilliard School, I’m awaiting the results for that at the moment!...
All the best,
I took my two boys aged 3 and 4 to their first class tonight. Usually shy in new situation but completely relaxed and joined in from the off. A fantastic class, fun and energetic teachers and such a different way to teach music. My kids loved it and I loved it! AMAZING 😉

Fun & Laughter with Jungle Music
My 2 year old daughter and I are enjoying Jungle Music with Miss Dawn so very much. It is my daughter's favourite class with a perfect mix of instrument playing, movement and singing. Every week is full of fun and laughter with the jungle friends and it is such a joy to see her taking part in all the activities with such enjoyment. Thank you Miss Dawn and all at Forte for providing such a nurturing and friendly environment.
Theory Exam Thanks
To Miss Jane,
Thank you so much for helping me pass my theory. I couldn't have done it without you.
Helped To Grow And Flourish
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your support throughout my time at Forte. You have helped me to grow and flourish as a teacher which I really appreciate. I wish you and the school all the best for the future.
Working As Team
Jane, Suzanne and everyone at Forte,
Thank you for making me feel so welcome at Forte. I've really enjoyed my time teaching at the school. Everyone works together as a team and I'll really miss coming in on Mondays.
Forte is a wonderful, inspiring and friendly school and I wish you all the success for the future.
Keep in touch,
A brief note to say thank you so much for accommodating Cerys in your theory class, even though it was (hopefully!) for a short time and in the middle of a course. We've been so impressed too by how you've offered to tailor the lessons around her! - thank you for helping her so much.
In the nicest possible way, we hope this is goodbye (pending exam Saturday)....until #2 needs her grade V!
