Develop your musical abilities with professionals

Our team of well qualified and experienced teachers offer instrumental and vocal tuition to students and staff.

Lessons last either 30 minutes or one hour and can be arranged to suit individual needs. Evening and weekend tuition can be organised on some instruments. We are not able to offer tuition to external musicians.

Tuition is available at all levels. Preparation for ABRSM /Trinity Guildhall grade exams and diplomas is available but we equally appreciate that you might wish to learn for pleasure without the stress of formal assessment. Preparation for ABRSM Theory exams at grade 5, 6, 7 and 8 is also available. Public music examinations preparation includes aural training and rehearsal with a pianist.

All students will have the opportunity to perform in public if they so wish.
