We encourage individual lessons at a rate of £20 for a half an hour lesson, however group lessons at £12 per pupil are available if the demand is there. All staff are fully qualified in their field, DBS checked, insured and comply with the new Data Protection Regulations (Music Guru is registered with the ICO).
At Music Guru we work hard to ensure that the lessons are tailored to each individuals goal, level and style with an emphasis on offering as many musical opportunities as possible for your child or yourself to develop as an all rounded musician.
We believe strongly that working together with the parents through clear and constant communication is key to ensuring your child continues to develop their musical skills outside of lessons. We have a mix of instrumental lessons taking place outside of school hours at our base in Spencers Wood ,or depending on the school, during school hours in their building.
Throughout the year we hold multiple concerts, courses, ensembles and workshops to develop the skills we cant always focus on in weekly lessons so keep an eye on the upcoming events!

CHART HITS CHOIR DAY
WEDNESDAY 24th JULY
10am - 3pm
Singing together in a choir is a fantastic way to relax yet develop those important listening skills that are needed for general musicianship skills and exams. You do not need to be a singer to join this fun, relaxed day of singing your favourite tunes, composing your own songs and creating your own album cover!
THURSDAY 25th JULY
10am - 3pm
This Songwriting and band performance day is designed to help your children learn how to start writing their own music for their instrument and voice. Working in groups they will have fun experimenting with sounds, lyrics, poems, choirs and much more with the aim to perform their creations at the end of the day.
MUSIC GURU ENSEMBLE
FRIDAY 26th JULY
10am - 3pm
Play your favourite songs alongside other instrumentalists to form an exciting ensemble. Ensembles provide the perfect opportunity for young musicians to enjoy playing as part of a team, improving and enhancing many areas of their learning. There is nothing better than being apart of producing that powerful and inspiring sound. You yourself will also have the opportunity to conduct the ensemble.
My daughter has been having piano lessons with Lisa for just over a year and her progress is amazing. Lisa knows how to encourage and get the best out of her students and has developed my daughters ability and confidence in a calm and friendly way.
Lisa is full of energy and passion and is fantastic teaching my two children aged 7 and 8 the clarinet and piano (and for a while the saxophone). It has been really helpful being able to talk to Lisa about the children’s progress at the end of each class and how we can support them with their music. We have also really appreciated Lisa having open conversations with us about the right instrument for our children and making sure they have a positive experience and get the most out of their lessons. The children are getting a well rounded approach to music (ie theory and listening skills) which we know will help them as they continue.
The children look forward to their lessons each week which says it all!
Lisa is a fantastic tutor. I’m a ‘mature’ student that was a little apprehensive of starting up piano at 39, but she made me feel at ease straight away. We do a mix of music theory and practice pieces. She also got to know what sort of music I liked so that alongside some of the more structured pieces I also get to have a go at playing some of my favourite tunes (Games Of Thrones for example). A very relaxed atmosphere where she offers plenty of encouragement; even when I’m playing like Les Dawson
Lisa is a very talented teacher, always very welcoming, very friendly – and most importantly – very patient! She’s excellent at making me feel confident and the lessons are fun as well as being informative.
Lisa is an amazing teacher. She teaches piano to my two, who are 7 & 10, who think the world of her! Lisa starts with the basics of teaching them how to read music and teaches them this, in such a way, that this skill will stay with them. They want to practise piano at home between their lessons and that’s down to Lisa’s enthusiastic approach to teaching and encouragement. I would recommend Lisa every time!
