Frequently Asked Questions
How do I organise a lesson?
You can CONTACT us via telephone or email. We will arrange for you to have lessons with the best tutor for you. There is no registration fee.
Where are your tutors located?
We have tutors across the whole of London, who can teach at your home, at the tutor's home or online.
How much do you charge?
We have two types of lessons: standard (beginner to intermediate level students) and specialist (advanced level students) lessons. For the cost of our standard lessons, visit our LESSONS page. Prices may vary depending on the tutor and travel costs. For specialist courses please phone to discuss at 079 35 636 741.
When can I start with my lessons?
As soon as you've made your payment you can start whenever you like. Some find it best to start at the beginning of the month, and keep a consistent day and time for their lessons.
How do I pay?
There are various ways to make a payment, as specified on the PAYMENTS page. You can pay for 4, 6, 8, 10 or 12 lessons upfront.
I cannot attend my scheduled lesson, how do I cancel or postpone?
To cancel a lesson, please give us at least 24 hours notice, otherwise we will have you charge you for your late cancellation. We treat our tutors fairly and encourage that you also respect their work, time and dedication. If you have given us more than 24 hours notice, we can reschedule the lesson.
I want piano lessons but I don't have a piano yet. Can I still have lessons?
We can organise lessons for you at a tutor's home, who will have a piano. We recommend that you eventually buy a piano. If you are not planning on buying an acoustic piano, we recommend that you purchase a digital piano with 88 keys and with weighted keys. If you're looking something within a lower budget, a keyboard can be a temporary solution.
What is the best age for my child to start music lessons?
For piano and singing lessons, age 4-6 is a good start. For guitar, violin, drums and trumpet, 6-10 is good.
What sort of guitar should I buy for my child?
The recommended guitar for young children is sized 1/2 or 3/4, with nylon strings. They usually cost £25-£100. For older children, both nylon and metal strings are suitable.
How many lessons should I have per week? And how long should the lessons be?
For young children, a 30 minute lesson a week is sufficient. We recommend that older children (12+) try out one 45 minute lesson per week. For older, intermediate or advanced students, 2 lessons of 45 minutes or 1 hour a week is recommended.
How much should I practice?
Young children should practice a minimum of 15 minute three times a week. Older children and beginner adults should practice 30 minutes several times a week. Advanced students should be practising for over 45 minutes on a daily basis. Practice will guarantee progress!
Do you teach grades and for exams?
Yes, we can prepare you for graded exams. Your tutor can recommend an exam board for you.
