Antje Thompson is our piano, violin and theory teacher. She started playing piano at the age of 6 and violin at the age of 12. She studied music at the National School of the Arts with piano being her first instrument and violin her second. She continued a career in music teaching piano, violin and theory and performing in a violin/guitar duo at restaurants, corporate functions and weddings.
She heads up our music program, Upbeat, which focuses on teaching children between the ages of 3 and 6 the foundations in rhythm, note reading and so much more to prepare them for one on one lessons. Although she is classically trained, and believes in grading her pupils, she strongly feels that music should always be a joyous experience and not something that should be forced or become tedious for her pupils. Her goal is to always make sure that her pupils are experiencing music in a fun way that makes them want to play for their own joy.
