Why you should learn an instrument no matter what age you are!

Learning an instrument is something we believe everyone should try. For children it is something we heavily encourage as it has so many benefits. Many of our teachers learnt from an early age and now make a living from music as well as regularly perform around the UK. Students choosing to take grades can use their results with further education. Music Grades 6 to 8 benefit from UCAS (University and Colleges Admission Service) points which can be used as part of a university or college application in the UK.


We also specialise in teaching adults of any age. Our oldest student was 87 years old so for those thinking it's too late to start as an adult, you couldn't be more wrong! Around 40% of our students are over 30 years old and all love the lessons that they have with us. It may feel daunting at first but we you'll be amazed at how quickly you can pick something up. With patience, perserverence and a sense humour, you'll be playing something recognisable in no time at all.


Our music lessons are one to one

The vast majority of our music lessons are one to one. We do offer small group lessons or the option to learn in pairs, but in reality one to one lessons are the most effective. All of our teachers are super friendly and remember how it feels to start out. All teachers have a basic disclosure or DBS check as many of our teachers also teach in primary and secondary schools.


Quality of tuition

Like most things in life, you get what you pay for. Our prices reflect the quality of the tuition you will recieve. Our teachers have studied for many years to reach the level they are at and teaching is their primary income source. For our piano lessons we only use upright pianos for our lessons and for other instruments we can organise the use of ours for the initial few lessons. We also regularly hold concerts for our students to showcase their abilities!
