Frequently Asked Questions

What Standard are you looking for?


We do not have any formal entry standards - applications and auditions are assessed very much on an individual basis. However, it is essential that the student shows a willingness to learn music.




At what age do you accept pupils?


We accept pupils from the age of 6 and above.




When is your intake?


Usually we like to start at the start of each term (Autumn, Spring, Summer terms) but other arrangements can sometimes be made.




Do you accept pupils that only play one instrument?


Yes, but we encourage pupils to learn as many instruments as they can.




How much are the fees?


Fees per lesson are £15, although this can be paid in a number of ways (weekly, monthly, yearly etc...) For more information, look at our Fees page.




How do I apply?


Get in touch with us and our booking team can arrange a day and time for your first lesson. You can do this by ringing us, emailing us or calling into the school during our opening hours to arrange this.




When do you stop accepting students?


We like to have our students applied and accepted before the start of each term date. However, we don't stop accepting students and candidates are encouraged to apply at any time during the year.
