Yes, all our tutors are able to prepare their students for the most popular examination boards such as ABRSM, Trinity, The Rock School and London College of Music.
Let us know upon booking if this is one of your requirements and we will make sure it is accommodated in the best way possible for you.
Our tutors teach popular instruments such as the piano, guitar, violin, flute, clarinet and saxophone. But we also offer lessons for bass guitar, banjo, mandolin, drums, singing and more. We cover most instruments.

To both practise and to take full advantage of your lesson you will need your own instrument. However, if the instrument is not too large, your tutor may be able to bring a spare that you can use in the lessons until you know which one to buy.
We are more than happy to advise you on where to purchase your own instrument if you need help with this.
For online lessons it is important that you have your own instrument.
Lessons at your home start from £30. Online lessons start from £22. You can get a full overview of all prices here.
This depends on the parents, student and the tutor. In most cases, it is preferable if the tutor and the student have the lesson without someone else present in the room. This allows both the tutor and student to be completely free so that the child can take the full benefit of having private lessons with someone that they do not necessarily meet every day. This applies to both face-to-face lessons and online lessons.
Sometimes, especially in the beginning, it can be reassuring for both the parents and the tutor if one of the parents are present during the lesson. It might also be helpful for the parents to occasionally be present to see how the lessons are done. This ultimately comes down to what you decide with your tutor, so it might be worth asking them about it.
In the unlikely event that your tutor will need to cancel the lesson, you are free to reschedule with your tutor at the earliest convenience. If that is not possible, let us know and we will do our best to find a replacement for that lesson.
We operate a 24-hour cancellation policy. If a lesson is cancelled less than 24 hours before it is meant to take place, you will still be charged the full amount. Our tutors are busy people and this is to ensure that your tutor’s time is treated respectfully.
You are free to schedule in as many lessons as you like. However, we do recommend that you have lessons at regular intervals to ensure a steady rate of progress. Once a week is most common. Before an exam or a performance, some people consider booking two or three lessons a week.
Your tutor will travel to any pre-agreed location, e.g. your home. Online lessons can be arranged from anywhere with a good internet connection.
This very much depends on the individual student. We are happy to teach children as young as 3 years old. At that age, we will keep the lessons very fun and playful. For adults, it is important to remember that it is never too late to learn an instrument!
