Welcome to our sixth Newsletter!

15th September 2014

Hope you all enjoyed the summer holidays. During the month of July we ran our first music competition, thanks to everyone who entered. There were two music books on offer and the prizes went to Georgia McLeod who won The Guitar book and Tom Coleman-Greene who won the Pop Music book. Congratulations to you both! Keep watching our website and Newsletters for more quizzes and competitions!

Welcome also to our new Skype pupils from Jaguar Landrover! It’s great to have you on board. We hope you enjoy learning the guitar, bass guitar, flute and music theory with our online tuition!

Skype Lessons

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.

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.

Advantages of Skype Music Lessons

  • All lessons prices are the same as you already pay for your lesson at our house.
  • No driving through traffic.
  • No petrol costs.
  • Saving you time and money!

Booking A Skype Lesson

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.
