Whether learning for fun or working towards a qualification, our tutors can teach you voice, piano, guitar, bass, drums, ukulele, music theory and production.
Lessons are structured around the leading international examining boards, including: RSL Awards, ABRSM and the London College of Music. Our syllabus ensures that each lesson includes technical work, aural awareness and performance techniques with a focus on development and progression for each student.
If you have the ambition, we have a qualification for you! Graded music exams are great for developing a range of skills, learning new styles of music and getting a respected and recognised qualification that is a true measure of your playing and musical ability.
The qualifications on offer range from Entry Level through to Level 6 and are designed to be practical, flexible, stimulating and fun, to suit musicians of all abilities and aspirations.
Our courses carry both QCF credits and UCAS points.
