Private tuition


Private lessons are focused on building skills and musicianship to ensure the student fulfils their maximum potential.

Our Private lessons are on a one-to-one basis for all ages and abilities. Lessons will always be tailored to the individual needs of the student and kept fresh, interesting and fun.

We believe that a positive musical experience from the very first lesson is crucial. We want to create safe learning environments where students feel comfortable, free and able to express their opinions and ideas. Our main objective is to help everyone achieve their goals by offering constructive, individualised support and tutoring.

We teach from nationally recognised syllabus’s Trinity (Rock and Pop) and RGT. Graded exams are optional in every instrument for those who wish to get qualified. Our tutors have the experience and knowledge to take you as far as you want to go. If you’d rather a relaxed approach, we will design your lesson around the songs and pieces that you want to learn.
