About our lessons
What we offer:
One-to-one lessons with an experienced teacher, both online and in person.
NB: Availability of our face-to-face lessons is subject to Covid-19 restrictions. If in-person lessons are suspended, all tuition will move online. When face-to-face lessons are available, Covid-safety measures will be in place which students will be expected to adhere to. Learn more here.
What instruments do we teach:
We currently offer tuition on the following instruments:
However, we intend to add further instruments to this list over the coming months, so if you can't see what you're interested in, send us a message and we'll keep you up to date as we introduce more lessons.
Lesson times vary depending on the instrument. We are currently offering face-to-face and online tuition on Saturdays for all instruments during shop hours (9.30am to 5pm), and have weekday lessons available for guitar and piano. However, we are always introducing new lesson times and we have some flexibility with online lessons so do get in touch for more information. NB: Lessons must be booked at least 48-hours in advance.
Lessons are £16 per half-hour. We take bookings in blocks of 5 or 10 lessons, with discounts available. See our FAQs for more information.
Our teaching rooms are based at JG Windows Ltd in Newcastle City Centre. Our piano rooms are equipped with Yamaha Clavinovas and we use Alesis Nitromesh kit for our drum lessons. Students have access to onsite toilet facilities and designated waiting areas.
If you are unable to come into the shop, or would prefer not to travel, we can offer the same expert tuition from the comfort of your own home. Getting set up is easy! You will need:
a phone, tablet or laptop with a built-in camera and mic (or separate components if you have them)
a wifi connection (or the ability to plug directly into your router for a better signal)
something to rest the device on so that you can get the right angle for a good view of you and your instrument
a free Skype or Zoom account
NB: If the student is under 18, the e-mail address attached to the Skype or Zoom account must belong to a parent or guardian and not the student. An adult must be in the room for the duration of the lesson.
