Facebook group

We have a Facebook group for all our students and their families. This is a hub for like-minded local musicians that we can all share in. A lot of cool video lessons are shared, as well as interesting links and articles. We have a lot of our lesson materials available to download from the Facebook page, so you can access your files from any computer, anytime. You never know, you may well find a band member on this page! Students/parents are sent the link to the group upon enrolling. 

We are an official Guitar Pro academic partner. A lot of our students will be using GuitarPro 6 software in their lessons – one of the greatest and cheapest music education tools that is currently available. We can offer a 50% discount to all our students - contact us to learn how to get your discount.
