Personalised help getting the best possible tutor for your needs

When it comes to learning an instrument, your tutor will be by far the most important and influential figure in your or your child’s musical development, so having the right person is paramount to becoming the best musician one can be and having lots of fun in the process! One of the things that makes learning with Lycaeum so great is the tremendous amount of care we take when we select the relevant tutor for each of our students.

Rather than encouraging our pupils to take a shot in the dark and select an online profile, we will instead invite you to have a conversation with us about what you or your child like about music, what your experience has been, if any, and what you wish to achieve.

Based on this, and anything else you might want to tell us, we will recommend you the tutor that we believe will best fit the profile and help your child achieve their goals. We’re pretty good at this, as over 96% of our students want to continue learning with their recommended tutor after their first lesson, and 83% are still learning with them after 12 months!

‘A great way to introduce kids to what music is. My daughter is now learning the trumpet with Lycaeum after seeing what it can do in this online session’

John, 53, London

A fantastic team, passionate about music, great engaging lessons, prompt emails. My son learnt to see music in an exciting way and was able to answer most questions in the last lesson’s quiz by himself.’
