Private lessons at home
The most efficient and effective way to learn to play an instrument!
As featured on and many more!
A premium learning experience
Your tutor will visit your home at any reasonable time that is convenient for you, as often as you wish, whether its once per week, twice per week, or once per month. Our at home lessons are fully flexible and amendable, with only a 24h notice period being required.
After the 1st session, your tutor will devise a personalised progress plan for you or your child. Upon approval, we will all work together towards achieving its goals. The lessons will be tailored to each student’s specific needs and objectives and will be highly personalised, to ensure the optimal combination of learning and having fun!
97% of our students continue with their recommended tutors after the first session

Having the right tutor is everything
One of the things that makes learning with Lycaeum better is the tremendous amount of care we take when we select the relevant tutor for each student.
Rather than asking students or parents to take a shot in the dark by selecting a tutor based on an online profile, we will instead invite to speak to us about what you or your child likes about music, what your or their 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 you achieve your goals. 97% of our students continue learning with their recommended tutor after their first lesson, and 86% are still learning with them after 12 months!
If you book at least 4 lessons and you don’t wish to continue after the 1st session, you will get a full refund!
We work with the best
All our tutors are professionals or late stage students from London’s top conservatoires, such as the Royal Academy of Music and the Royal College of Music, and are all DBS checked, so you know you will be in very good hands!
In order to teach for Lycaeum, our tutors must first pass a series of thorough personal checks and interviews, and show the relevant experience and expertise not only as professionally trained musicians, but also as tutors in various educational settings. Additional skills beyond their ability to play are a must, such as patience, organisation, and very good empathetic listening.
We only work with the top 10% of tutors in London!
