Where do lessons take place?

Lessons are usually arranged depending on yours and the tutor’s location. All tutors are based in the Bristol area. Some of our tutors offer mobile lessons, where they can come to you. We can be flexible – please contact us for details.

How much do lessons cost?

We offer a free 30 minute taster session. This will give you a chance to get to know your tutor and whether they are the perfect fit for you.

Group Guitar and Music Production lessons cost £15.00 per session (50 minutes).

One to one lessons cost £25 for 45 minutes or £30 per hour for all courses.

Do you offer block booking discounts?

Yes, if you block book 10 lessons in advance you will receive a 10% discount. This applies to both group lessons and private lessons.

Do you teach kids?

Yes we do. We offer lessons to children aged 8 and up. All of our tutors have an Enhanced DBS certificate so you can be sure your child is in safe hands. Please let us know in advance if there are any special requirements for your child.

What are the benefits of group lessons?

Group classes offer excellent value for money. They are also a great way to gain confidence playing with other musicians, helping to develop communication skills and learning in a group dynamic where students are assisting each other and learning from one another.

How many students are there in a group?

We take up to 4 students in a group session. We organise the groups by age and ability – junior and adult classes are separate.

Do you teach grades?

Yes, we are happy to teach grades but will never push students to do so unless it is their choice. We teach grades for ABRSM, Rockschool and LCM examinations. They can be useful for young students as grade 6-8 certificates are worth additional UCAS points for university applications, but enjoyment should always come first.

Do you teach over school holidays?

Yes, we do offer lessons over school holiday periods

Am I too old to learn?

No. Absolutely not. We have students in their seventies who are making unbelievable progress!

How do I book a lesson?

To make an enquiry please use the contact form or give us a call- contact details can be found here.

What if I need to cancel or reschedule a lesson?

We operate on a 48 hour cancellation policy. Any cancellations made within 48 hours directly prior to your booked lesson are fully chargeable. Any cancellations made in time are fully refundable.

Why choose Bravura?

We believe that music is for everyone. We also know how much music teachers can influence a student’s outlook on music. I’m sure you all know somebody who has had a bad experience with music lessons in the past and subsequently lost interest in learning and playing.

That’s why our focus is on you as an individual. We’ll always adapt to your pace and learning style, tailoring the lessons to help achieve your goals and to improve in the way you want. There’s always a way to get there, even if it’s not the most obvious or technical route – we have taught someone with Arthritis to play chords on the guitar, someone who had been previously told there was no chance they can play. We have taught children to sing and play instruments, who have been condemned by their school’s music teacher…

The sky’s the limit.
