Don’t forget this month we have our competition to win a choice of books (closing date 31st July 2014) and we are also offering Gift vouchers worth £5.00!!!
We have on offer two music books to win. One is about the pop music business giving great advice about all the pros and cons of entering this business as your career.
The other book is about guitar teaching which is more suited for those thinking about a career in music teaching.
How can I enter the competition?
Easy…just play the audio clip and answer what songs we are playing. There are ten songs in total. Listen to this audio:
£5.00 Gift Vouchers
How does this work?
Simple and easy is the answer! All you have to do is to be a current pupil of Nick or Kelly either at their house or via Skype lessons. If you have a friend who is interested in music lessons and they would like to learn either six string guitar (all styles), bass guitar, flute or music theory, then let us know and we’ll give you a £5 gift voucher off your next lesson once your friend has paid and has had their first lesson on Skype. We are taking on all NEW pupils on Skype only.
At the moment we are setting up a new Skype timetable to take on new pupils and to transfer old pupils onto Skype. This will give all pupils a chance to try a new modern way of having their lesson and to reserve their name, time and day into our new timetable. The advantages far outweigh the disadvantages for online music tuition. We understand this won’t suit everyone of our current pupils who attend music lessons at our house but we hope you can adjust to our new format bringing our teaching skills into the 21st century! We will still teach the pupils who attend our house who might find this difficult especially those with special needs or who will be taking a music exam in 2014.
All lessons prices are the same as you already pay for your lesson at our house, so no extra charges, no driving through traffic and no petrol costs too saving you time and money! It’s simple, quick and easy to book and pay online at least 24 hours before. We can even send you a text reminder a few hours before your Skype lesson is due to start! Remember you pay the same price as you would normally.

Words of Thanks
Below is a link to our website which is open for our pupils to comment in (only positive comments please!) This is for any pupil whether they have a Skype lesson or a lesson at our house. You can comment on the music you’ve enjoyed learning, how well you have learnt a piece of music or even how fun the lesson was! We’re listening to your voice through your comments!
A number of pupils now are interested in having their weekly lessons alternating with Skype lessons, so one week to our house and one week via Skype. This seems to work well for them and us.
We hope to keep our pupils and parents updated with information which they may find useful via these newsletters.
