Learning as a group can be lots of fun! Groups lessons will take into account everybody’s interests and abilities.  We recommend small groups of 4 children maximum so that your child can get the best out of the 30 minutes contact time.

How do I know which music books and guitar to buy?

Our guitar tutor Faye is on hand to answer any questions regarding suitable guitars once you have booked with us. Faye will recommend suitable books and resources when your child starts his / her lessons. 

How do the lessons work?

The first lesson is very much about the teacher getting to know the pupil and understanding what level they are at and what kind of lesson will suit them best. The teacher will then choose the best learning materials for each child and the lesson format going forward. The focus is always on enjoyment - all Discover & Be music and academic lessons are about learning in a fun, positive and constructive environment.
