The seed of creativity starts here! Hello my name is Nina Minshull and I am the owner and founder of Swindon Piano 'N' Drama Studio. We are located in Swindon Town Hall and offer specialist tuition in piano, electronic keyboard, guitar, music theory, singing, musical theatre and drama. I have a Masters in Theatre Practice and have spent the past 7 years providing high quality, reasonably priced lessons which everyone can enjoy!
All our teachers are DBS checked and covered by public liability insurance. We believe in a student-led approach to learning which means that we won't make you study classical music or do Shakespeare if you don't want to! (although if you would like to that's fabulous too!)
We enter students of any subject for the Trinity College London graded examinations and have a 100% pass rate success, with majority of students achieving merit or above. At Swindon Piano 'N' Drama Studio we are passionate about giving students opportunities to perform and regularly hold student shows, open mics and recitals. If you are interested in taking lessons we offer a free introductory session where we will meet you at my studio for an informal chat. This will give you a chance to talk through any questions which you may have, see where we teach and give you a feel for whether you would like to have me as a teacher! If you would like to arrange an introductory session please fill in the contact us form and we will aim to reply within 24 hours. Swindon Piano 'N' Drama Studio is based in the superb Town Hall Studios which is a vibrant and exciting hub of creative activity based in the heart of Swindon Town centre. The Town Hall is currently home to Swindon Dance who have been active in the community for over 30 years. So rest assured you will be taking lessons in an extremely safe, supportive and creative environment. And while you're here you may like to take part in a dance class!
Our lessons take place on the top floor of the Town Hall, which currently consists of two fully equipped teaching studios, a waiting area and office space. There is a quality upright piano, an electronic piano, tons of books, backing tracks, sheet music and other lovely resources available!
building also has newly installed WiFi which is open to the public. In the waiting area there is comfortable seating, books and magazines where students or their family can relax. Alternatively parents are welcome to leave your children for the duration of their lesson while you go for a cup of coffee or shopping! Another benefit of being located on the doorstep of the Town Centre!
Dance is delighted to have Swindon Piano 'N' Drama Studio working in
our building and we welcome and support Nina Minshull’s fresh and
creative approach to teaching drama and music."
