Mr Justin Burton  BMus(hons)


Justin was born in the West Midlands and comes from a very musical family. Studying music was a very important part of childhood and his studies took him to train professionally, being awarded a music scholarship to study at Birmingham Conservatoire, gaining a BMus (hons) degree. Whilst in his final (4th) year at music college, Justin accepted a teaching post at Bromsgrove School, Worcester as a piano and violin teacher (particularly focusing on infant school age as an early years specialist). Soon after graduating, Justin accepted a teaching post at Repton Preparatary School (Foremarke Hall), Derbyshire where he taught for sixteen years before moving to Nottingham High School. Justin has always been particularly drawn towards teaching music and this teaching gene has always naturally been there for him since day one.

Justin uses a specialist teaching method, where the focus on playing notes and recognizing notes on the stave is imperative, rather than bringing too much formal focus on theory into the lessons at an early age, which can put the student off wanting to learn.

Lessons are fun and the style of music chosen are all tailored to each individual student, so that they are studying repertoire that they ENJOY, rather than learning set traditional classical music which children can sometimes struggle to relate to and their interest can wane.

Justin is experienced at teaching children with learning difficulties and can still achieve great results with these students.

Students study the ABRSM syllabus when taking grades (1-8). This is the most established and professional music examination body in the world, geared predominantly towards young musicians keen to study music professionally as a future career.

Justin prepares his more serious and talented students for concerts, competitions, auditions, music scholarships and ABRSM grades but enjoyment of lessons and learning is always of paramount importance during this process.
