Eralys Fernandez Music Academy

I run my music academy from my home in Knaphill, Woking.  It makes use of wonderful music studios I have in my garden.

I am employing outstanding music teachers. They are gifted in performance and teaching.   All the academy teachers are CRB checked.

The vision of the Academy is to teach strong technique and develop a real love of music.  

We encourage all the students to perform in summer and winter student concerts.  Selected students also play in the master classes we arrange. Students are prepared for performances at local music festivals and scholarship exams.

We have students preparing for Grade 1-8 ABRSM and Trinity and also a number of advanced students playing highly technical pieces.  Many students start as complete beginners.

Piano Lesson Prices
