Music Guru currently offers lessons in the following instruments for children and adults:
Piano, Singing, Clarinet, Saxophone, Flute, Recorder, Bassoon, Trumpet, Trombone, French Horn, Drums, Music Theory and Music Composition
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!
Music Guru is delighted to inform you that we are starting two weekly events on Sundays in Farley Hill and are already planning our annual Christmas concert in Lower Earley. Please see below for details on all 3 events.
SATURDAY 14TH DECEMBER
If you are interested in your child performing in one of our two concerts please do inform your teacher and email the details in the form below. Our christmas concerts are always a fun, festive and relaxed celebration for all to enjoy, even beginners! We also welcome external performers outside of Music Guru as we believe offering rare performance experience to instrumentalists/singers is an extremely important aspect of their musical journey.
The Victory Hall, Farley Hill
Adults £5, Children £3. Booking Required.
Our weekly family choir starting on Sunday 6th October (term time only) is for families to share something special together, connecting through music. With a focus on FUN and no pressure for solos, we will be singing your favourite pop/film/old classics/disney and chart songs with songs chosen by you and your children.
Ages 5 and above are welcome to join in with the choir. If you have children younger and you wish for them to come along while you yourself sing, please email to discuss logistics. As long as they will not be a disruption to the choir and can be kept occupied, we are more than happy to welcome those younger- singing does have a calming effect!
MUSIC GURU ENSEMBLE
The Victory Hall, Farley Hill
£5. Booking Required
Our instrumental band is aimed at pupils who are learning any instrument from beginners to grade 3 to all come together and play their favourite song/film music like an orchestra! This extremely fun and innovative ensemble will enhance your pupils musical skills and touch upon aspects we can not do in 1:1 lessons. We will teach them how to conduct, work as a team by listening to each other, learn about how other instruments work and sound together, learn about musical terms through fun group floor games and much more!
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!
