In-person vs. Online

We are delivering in-person lessons in approximately 70% of the schools in which we normally teach. All lessons are subject to strict COVID safety protocols.

Where lessons can't be taught in-person, we offer online lessons instead.

If you are only interested in in-person lessons, please tell us this in the 'Notes' during the sign-up process. It may be necessary for your child to be put on to our Waiting List.

It may take us a little while to make in-person teaching arrangements with some schools it may not be possible to fulfil in-person teaching in some settings until after a Covid vaccine is found.

All in-person lessons are subject to being transitioned online in the event of local lockdown, school closure or tutor/pupil self-isolation.

Lesson Fees

Please note that paired lessons online are subject to availability. In-school shared lessons will only be possible within a 'bubble', typically this will mean with a pupil from your child's class or year group.

Prices for lessons that take place at our Music Centre are usually a little higher because we rent the space. Whilst your child's lessons remain online, you will benefit from our lower school-lesson prices.

Parent feedback

“I am very happy with the teaching online. Both my children still enjoy their lessons and both are still learning. Thank you!”

“(Online) lessons have been amazing and my son has remained motivated and excited to learn and practice. It’s been wonderful to hear bits of the lessons and how positive and encouraging (my son’s tutor) is.”

“We prefer my daughter’s music lessons being online. It means we get to sit in on the lesson, can follow her progress and know what the teacher (who is excellent) has asked her to do each week. My daughter is practising more now than she ever did before and we are so pleased that we continued with the e-lessons. Thank you.”.
