Frequently Asked Questions
DO I NEED MY OWN INSTRUMENT?
We have 2 full drum kits and individual practice pads available for drum lessons.
For music production there is an Ableton Push unit and Ableton Live 10, along with various microphones used alongside an iMac running Logic Pro. There are also keyboards and other sound modules that can be used. Should anybody want to bring an instrument or Vinyl/CD to record or sample then that is great!
For guitar lessons, guitars can be provided (electric and nylon string acoustic). Although if you would prefer to bring your own guitar then that is happily encouraged. Please remember to state if you are left-handed so provisions can be made.
Ukuleles are also provided by us for lessons, but again please let us know if you are left-handed so provisions can be made.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT IN MY FIRST LESSON / CONSULTATION?
The consultation will enable us to meet and discuss your expectations, establish what level you are at, and how I can help you to get better on your chosen instrument. And of course actually playing instruments!
WILL YOU KEEP ME UP-TO-DATE ON MY CHILD’S PROGRESS?
Yes! Each learner that block-books a term will have a Music House notebook detailing progress and targets from each private lesson, and of course, should you have any questions at any point we are more than happy to discuss everything with you.
CAN I CANCEL A SCHEDULED LESSON?
You can cancel a scheduled session, however you will be liable for the full cost of the lesson if less than 24hrs notice is given. Click here to read our terms and conditions.
CAN I START MID-WAY THROUGH THE TERM?

Yes, if for some reason you can’t make a scheduled session, with ample notice (more than 24hrs) we will endeavour to arrange a suitable alternative
