FAQ

Getting started

Is there a specific age requirement to start music lessons?
None at all! Anyone and everyone can do it.
 
In 2016, the age of our students ranged from 4 to 72. Our teachers plan the learning experience individually for each pupil, taking into account things like their age, abilities and interests. No one is ever too old to learn an instrument.
What instruments do you teach? Where in the UK?
We teach all instruments upon request. From the Classical instruments, to drums, electric guitars or even Chinese traditional instruments such as the erhu. Everything you want, we make it happen!
 
We are a UK-wide school covering all major areas of the country.
Do you organise concerts and other musical activities?
Yes. We organise two concerts every year in each major area of the UK.
 
Taking part is, of course, optional, but they can prove to be great motivational milestones for students, as they would work towards a definite and palpable end goal.
 
We also hold regular workshops for orchestras,  choirs, bands and guitar ensembles.

Lessons

When and where will lessons take place?

For at home lessons, our teacher will travel to any pre-agreed location, be it your home or your office.

Online lessons can take place from anywhere with internet access.

You are free to schedule your lessons as you wish, although for good results, we recommend that you have lessons on a regular basis.

How are online lessons delivered?

Online sessions are delivered via Zoom or Skype, arranged at a time to suit you, and can be as frequent as you like.

Just like in-person lessons, online lessons are tailored to you, and your tutor will work with you on a ‘progress plan’ to help you achieve your goals.

Are online lessons an effective way to learn an instrument?

Yes! Online lessons are a very similar experience to in person lessons.

With a decent internet connection, online lessons are hassle-free. Using the camera and microphone built in to your smartphone, tablet or computer is sufficient.

To make sure your lessons run as smoothly as possible, it may be a good idea to check your internet connection, camera and microphone before you begin. You can easily check your internet connection online, and Zoom and Skype both have built in tools that let you test your camera and microphone.

What happens if I need to cancel a lesson?
You can cancel a lesson at any time.
 
However, our teachers are busy people, so in order to show respect for their time, we operate a 24h cancelation policy. If you do need to cancel within the 24h leading to your scheduled lesson, we will charge you the full amount for the lessons as if it did take place.
 
In the unlikely event that your teacher has to cancel a lesson, due to things such as health problems, we will either find you a replacemement teacher for the day, or if you prefer, your lesson will be rescheduled with your tutor at your earliest convenience.

How do I pay?

You can order the lessons on our website by pressing the get started button.

Do I need to buy an instrument before the first lesson?
In most cases you will need an instrument to start with, but most of our teachers will be happy to share theirs for the first lessons, before decide to buy one.
 
Once you do decide to go ahead, we can help you make the most cost-effective choice, as buying an instrument can be rather confusing and expensive for a beginner. Just let us know and we will be there for you!
