Our high-quality group lessons allow children to develop increasingly sophisticated instrumental and musicianship skills in a fun and motivating environment.  Our flagship Roundabout programme introduces children to six instruments over the course of a year. We are excited to have recently launched our follow-on programme Play! which is designed to help children to progress further in group learning on their favoured instrument. This can be augmented with Introduction to Drums or Introduction to Cello.

Learning music improves concentration, memory, imagination and the development of fine motor skills. The supportive environment of our small group lessons enables children to grow in self-confidence as well as enhancing their listening, collaborative and non-verbal communication skills. Children show obvious pride in their own achievements, whilst celebrating their classmates’ skills and progress.  It’s also an energising and uplifting experience and a great way to make new friends!

Courses can also be combined with Junior Musicianship or Theory Plus for a fully rounded musical education. As children develop independence and are able to control voice and instruments technically, they can move onto individual or shared lessons:  these opportunities offer the most focused, personalised experience with one of our team of exceptional Tutors
