For many students, their first piano teacher is the beginning of a life of musical study. We have a range of piano teachers and match them to students young and old, from beginner to experienced player. Study for grades if you wish or lessons purely for pleasure. Learning piano is the cornerstone for understanding music theory and harmony. It teaches both bass and treble clef with clear visual understanding.
Keyboard lessons utilise an electronic keyboards ability to voice chords for students, freeing up their left hand. Keyboard music has chord symbols written for the left hand and the keyboard works out what notes and chord inversions to play. Trinity Guildhall provide keyboard exams.
Electric guitar lessons
Electric guitars range from the Stratocaster of Hendrix to the Les Paul of Jimmy Page and Richie Sambora. If you want to learn electric guitar then we will help you along the way. Our Music Centres stock a wide range of instruments from Fender to Yamaha and will be happy to help you with your selection.
Acoustic guitar lessons Our teachers are happy to advise on a variety of techniques from rock to pop and are also able to help with restringing and tuning guitars. Acoustic guitar can be played in a wide variety of styles so selecting the correct teacher is vital here.
Classical guitar lessons A nylon strung guitar is called a Classical or Spanish guitar. We can supply classical guitar teachers for students that wish to take grades or merely to improve their existing skills.
Bass guitar lessons Bass guitars come in a variety of set-ups, from 4 string to 6 string so if you are keen on becoming a bassist, then let us help you find a bass teacher to suit you.
Drum lessons Our drum tutors can prepare you for Rockschool Grades or Trinity Guildhall Grades if you wish. Traditionally an acoustic kit is commonly used, however electronic drum kits also provide a quieter option. We can provide drum tutors for either instrument.
Saxophone lessons We are able to teach all sax’s, from alto sax to tenor and soprano sax too. Most beginners start on alto sax as it is smaller and easier to handle, but adult beginners can start on tenor if they prefer. A low strength reed is best for beginners such as a 1.5 Rico Royal.
Clarinet lessons Musico is happy to arrange for clarinet lessons and many students use the clarinet as an introduction to saxophone lessons or similar. Our clarinet teachers are enthusiastic and able to teach a wide range of styles as the clarinet lends itself to both classical and jazz. Improvisation is also an option.
Flute lessons Flutes are woodwind instruments and have a unique way of creating a sound…you blow over a hole, a bit like a milk bottle top. Curved neck joint flutes enable smaller students to hold the flute correctly so age is not a problem. Our Music Centres have a range of both new and second hand flutes if you require an instrument.
Singing lessons Musico's singing teachers cover a wide range of backgrounds, from opera to rock and blues. Good projection, breathing, and harmony are all part of learning to sing. Singing lessons can be quite a personal subject; singing students have no instrument other than their own vocal chords so a good working relationship with the singing teacher is crucial. Musico’s consultation process ensures that this is so.
Violin lessons Violin lessons are very popular. A good beginner violin starts from as £120 or so, they are easily portable and violin students develop excellent ears as there are no frets on the fingerboard. Large orchestras can have as many as 30 violins, often splitting them between first and second violin parts. Our violin teachers are happy with beginners from around 6 years old and upwards.
Viola lessons Violas look like large violins but are tuned differently and produce a deeper sound. A viola teacher can read the alto clef as viola music is written in this, however many violin teachers also teach viola as the technique is similar.
Cello lessons Cello’s come in a range of sizes so young cello students can begin on a half size instrument and grow from there. Our cello teachers usually have a strong classical background and are happy to prepare their students for grades and exams. Without frets, a cello can be quite daunting but they also produce a unique rich and colourful tone which many find very rewarding.
Trumpet lessons Our trumpet teachers come from a variety of backgrounds; some are ex. services whilst others have come through the usual music colleges, but all teach a variety of trumpet styles so you can be blowing like Louis Armstrong or Miles!
Ukulele lessons The ukulele has seen a recent surge in popularity, such that there are now a whole family of ukulele’s from soprano to bass. Inexpensive to buy and simple to learn on, we can provide you with a ukulele teacher to suit your requirements. Teachers travel to you so lessons are at a time and place of your choosing.
