    Our Quality Tutors

    We achieve this by providing the highest possible standards of tuition in music, art and drama delivered in an environment that is challenging, supportive, but above all, driven by creative expression. Tutors are exceptional: many of them are international performing, recording or academic leaders, and they share our passion and commitment to the power of creative expression. Our programmes are designed to grow with our learners as they gain skills and experience, providing not only individual tuition but also opportunities to take part in masterclasses, ensembles, small group learning and performance.

    Our Buildings and Outreach

    Our wonderful building is part of the oldest purpose-built cultural complex in London and includes one of the last-remaining Victorian art studios in the country, but at heart, we are a community organisation, and we always seek to develop and deepen our links with the areas we serve. We also believe that creative opportunities should be provided with the fewest possible barriers, so we work with all ages, both at the Conservatoire, and increasingly, in the community. You will find us in schools, residential homes, children’s centres, nurseries: anywhere we can make a difference. Our bursary programme and links with sponsors enable us to reach out and bring the outstanding work we do to people regardless of personal challenge, social circumstances or previous experience.
