Music

Studying Music enables students to express themselves and develop a highly desirable skill set in areas such creativity, data analysis, performance, teamwork, problem-solving, and communication. Many students undertake further study in performance, often at conservatoires in the UK and abroad. Rather than limiting your career prospects, a music degree opens doors to a wide range of careers both within and outside the arts.

“Michael is a friendly and professional teacher. He has built a strong rapport with Lewis and achieved the perfect balance of support and challenge to help him achieve that A* grade.”

Our Approach

Music lessons are tailored to the needs of each student. They focus on music composition, practical work, and music theory. We prepare students for Music scholarships at top UK schools including St Paul’s School, Westminster School, Caterham and Rugby School, for GCSE and A Level exams, and ABRSM music exams.

Each of our teachers have been specifically chosen for their music skills, educational background and teaching experience. They all hold a music degree, teaching qualification and a minimum of two years of classroom experience. Many of our teachers are active musicians and specialise in instruments including the piano, guitar, flute, violin, clarinet and drums.

Exam Boards

We have experienced teachers with knowledge of the following exam boards.

  • AQA
  • Edexcel
  • CIE
  • OCR
  • ABRSM

“It is rare to find a teacher who is able to provide outstanding tuition from beginner to Grade 8. Anna is a true musician – she provides insightful guidance, explains the fundamentals of each technique and delivers fun, engaging lessons which drive progress. I cannot recommend her more highly.”
