How it Works

​Our music teachers are based all around the Birmingham area. Some teachers offer lessons in the students homes, some teachers offer lessons in their own homes or teaching studios. 

​Each one of our teachers comes from a different musical background and has a different focus in their career, as a professional musician and teacher. We aim to match the interests of our students to their ideal teacher. 

​Each student starts with an initial lesson to meet their teacher and get a sense for their teaching style. After the initial lesson, if the student is happy with their teacher, they can continue to have lessons on a weekly basis. 

Our Teachers

​All of our teachers are full qualified and have relevant experience in their specialist areas. Our teachers are not just experienced music teachers, but professional performers, composers and artists. Through a careful selection profess, we make sure that all of our teachers have organised methods for teaching music. We regularly monitor all of our teachers through student progress and feedback. Please see our teacher information page for information about individual teachers. 

Why Choose Us

Learning to play an instrument is an investment of time, money and hard work. Finding the right teacher is of the upmost importance. Our teachers will:

  • ​Inspire students as musicians
  • ​Explain ideas and techniques in a clear and organised manner and offer an approach to applying these techniques in practice with the students chosen instrument. 
  • ​Be interested in the students needs. They will be flexible and tailor the lesson to suit the requirements of the individual student. 
  • ​Make your lessons enjoyable. Music should not seem like a difficult chore and should be enjoyed. 

Our Policies

  • We offer private lessons which take place in your home or in one of our studios. 
  • ​Lessons take place on a weekly basis. 
  • ​Lessons are scheduled around your availability. We can accommodate students at any time of the day, evening or weekend. 
  • ​You are not required to commit to a certain number of lessons with us and if yo wish to discontinue lessons, 5 days notice should be given. 
  • ​Should you need to cancel a lesson whilst you are away, just give us 24 hours notice and you will be refunded/given credit for a future lesson.
  • ​If you need to cancel a lesson short notice, as long as we receive 24 hours notice, we can reschedule/refund you for the lesson. 
  • ​There are occasionally instances where students must cancel last minute. We recognise that sometimes this can be due to circumstances beyond the students control but to be fair to our teachers, we are unable to reschedule/refund lessons that are cancelled with less than 24 hours notice. 
  • ​Payments for lessons are made in advanced, usually online by credit/debit card as we send out your invoices a week in advanced of your due lesson.
