Where do lessons take place?

Due to CoVid, and until further notice all lessons will be held online. You can find us on Skype at Bravura_Music, or Discord at Bravura_Music#3834. Alternatively, please don’t hesitate to get in touch for further information about lesson formats.

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 vice versa! There is absolutely no pressure or obligation to sign up for regular lessons – please do use it as an opportunity to ask questions and get a feel for the lessons before committing!

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!

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.

Do you sell gift vouchers?

Yes, gift vouchers can be purchased directly from us. You get 30 minutes added to your first voucher purchase for no extra cost! Great value makes for great gifts! Vouchers are charged at the same rate as normal lessons.

Do you give a free taster session?

Yes, every new student gets a 30 minute trial session. The trial gives the student and tutor a chance to get to know each other before making a commitment for regular lessons. There is no obligation to continue having regular lessons after the trial, although of course we would love for you to continue learning with us 🙂

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 – I have personally taught an elderly student 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, so don’t hesitate if you feel like music could be the thing for you 🙂
