One to one tuition for children and adults is available Monday to Saturday daytimes and evenings at our N8 studio in Crouch End or online.

The private lessons for beginners or those with previous training are taught by experienced and qualified professionals at our studio which is near Highgate, Muswell Hill and Finchley. We have students of all ages and abilities - from 5 to 85!

Whether you aspire to be Elton John, Jimi Hendrix, or Nicola Benedetti, we like to keep the lessons enjoyable and fun and tailored to your requirements. We use modern techniques and we can teach either Classical and/or Contemporary music. You can progress quickly with moderate practice.

Playing may be for your own pleasure or you can choose to show off your new skills in our three annual studio recitals. You can also prepare for auditions and competitions. It is also possible for us to help you to prepare for graded examinations with ABRSM, Trinity, LCM and the Rock Skool and we have a 100% success rate!
