Ideally, every student should have their own keyboard, however the program can also be delivered by splitting the class or having two students per keyboard, so 12-15 should be adequate depending on your class sizes. We also have guitar options including tab and chords for all songs to give teachers greater flexibility.

Likewise the technology and sound quality of recent keyboards has improved significantly from those in years gone by. If you are planning to update your technology and would like to start the program in the meantime, please feel free to contact us as many schools have chosen this option to get started with a view to upgrading keyboards at a later date.
