Music Learning Collective

Welcome to the MLC Method

By enrolling at the MLC, you’ll discover how our unique and industry-leading education Method will help you to unleash your potential.

Whether you’re learning for fun or accreditation, the MLC Method not only gets you playing straight away, following a structured pathway of progressive mastery, but it provides professional performance opportunities, and support from our revolutionary digital learning platform, all whilst mastering some of the most iconic tracks from the world of contemporary music.


The MLC Method offers far more than a traditional music lesson with an independent teacher. In addition to having regular one-to-one lessons with our qualified, DBS-checked and regulated teachers, our revolutionary digital learning platform provides a powerful set of features, including:



  • Notation synced with real video recordings. Tone, feel, technique — there’s so much that notation can’t communicate. Our Method combines the best of both worlds.
  • Intuitive practice tools. Click a note to go to that moment of the video. Drag across notes to make a loop. Slow down, transpose, solo parts and much more.
  • Works on any device with a web browser. No need to install anything.

What’s more, you’ll never need to buy another music book again! You’ll gain access to the entire range of RSL books from Premiere and Debut through to Level/Grade 8.

If music is your passion, you deserve to be heard

Whether you’re starting out or sharpening up, having the opportunity to perform live is one of the most valuable experiences for any musician—ask any that you know, and they’ll confirm that just one gig can help you improve more than hundreds of hours practising on your own.

That’s why we encourage our students to participate in our regular performance opportunities, either locally or in our state-of-the-art facilities in Nottingham. By joining the Music Learning Collective, you’ll quickly discover that all tastes, genres, styles, ages and abilities are welcome!
