  About the lessons
   
 
Lessons are one to one and 60mins in duration. A unique teaching method enables anyone to grasp a good understanding of this amazing instrument. Students are able to obtain a lot, even just from one lesson.
   

 

Lessons are catered for each individual student's needs. The structure is perfectly adapted for those studying the kora for a course at University, but will also cater for those who wish to try out and learn the instrument for their own personal reasons.
   
Lessons can be booked regularly, or ad-hoc to suit the student's needs.
   
 

 

 

  Things I like about Sona's teaching include her patient, considered and methodical approach. In my experience, many musicians raised within a tradition have a limited insight into the difficulties faced by those approaching that tradition from the outside. Sona has clearly thought this through and come up with strategies to make the repertoire accessible. As well as taking you through the steps on the journey, she shows you the destination so that you understand why you are doing what you are doing. She is flexible, patient and good humoured, adapting her approach to accommodate where you are at and where you want to go. - Dominic Paris
