Tuition is offered on a range of instruments: vocal, strings, brass, woodwind, keyboard/piano, guitar and percussion. Tutors are distributed across the county by Area Managers who have the local knowledge and expertise necessary to forge excellent relationships with schools.

To book tuition for the spring/summer term 2020, please email

You will need to book tuition for each academic year, even if there are no changes in order for a booking to be confirmed and considered in the timetabling process. Please note, tuition cannot be booked directly with the instrumental tutor.

Tuition can be requested at any point during the school year. The service will schedule 36 visits by each teacher, the school will not be charged if any tuition cancelled by the teacher or music service. 

Once your request has been submitted, your allocated Area Manager will source one of our instrumental tutors to carry out the work. Either the Area Manager or the Instrumental Tutor will contact you to discuss arrangements before the tuition commences.

At the start of the academic year, we try to allocate the same teacher to your school on a rolling basis to provide continuity, however no guarantee can be made. We do understand that bookings can be unpredictable at the start of the academic year; therefore we will accept adjustments within the first few of weeks of September.

Please note tuition cannot be booked directly with your instrumental tutor.
