Remaining Online

Added on 29/06/2024

School LogoNo more lockdown!

However, we decided to remain an online music school as this has proved to be a successful way to provide lessons, especially as the pupil can remain at home and the family taxi can avoid yet another trip out!

Happily this has worked well for most pupils, enabling them to continue to flourish! It also has the great bonus that if a lesson is missed, it it MUCH easier to arrange a catch up lesson. It really does just need a convenient time and a phone or laptop!

Through lockdown our lessons have continued, and we are delighted that co-founder of the school, Laura McGinity, is joining us to offer online lessons on Saxophone, Flute and Clarinet.

Having continued teaching her existing pupils through lockdown, Laura has gained a great deal of invaluable experience in teaching online.

School LogoCoronavirus is upon us.

However, our lessons have continued online through the lockdown.

The rooms and premises we use are too small to ensure safe social distancing, so for everyone's safety, we are continuing online for the foreseeable future.

Happily almost all of our pupils have continued with lessons, and we look forward to seeing more pupils in the near future.


Closure of our Finchley Centre

School LogoSadly we have had to close our Finchley Centre.

After several rent increases above the rate of inflation, we were forced to conclude that continuing with the Centre on longer made economic sense. The landlords - Barnet Borough Scouts - seemingly failed to understand that continuing rental increases in difficult trading circumstances would create an impossible siutation for us.

Happily we are able to continue to offer lessons from our Centre in Hendon.

New Teacher

Added on 24/11/2016

Its been a busy term, with several new classes starting. For established classes, several of them have had exams with pupils waiting anxiously for the results.

We also had a new teacher join us, Romeo. Romeo teaches guitar and has fitted in well at the school.

He is also a Rockschool examiner. This is great news for us, as he knows exactly how best to prepare pupils for their exams.

Bass Guitar

We now offer Bass Guitar lessons. We do these as one to one lessons, as although the Bass Guitar is a great instrument, its not as popular as regular guitars.

If you're interested, just get in touch.
