FOR THE JOY OF PLAYING AND THE LOVE OF LEARNING
Our short taster courses are small group lessons – perfect for friends and family to do together.
Designed as an introduction to music, taster courses are a great way to have a go and learn the basics. With eight courses to choose from, you can enrol to one or more or use these as a stepping stone to further your musical learning.
Depending on the course chosen, commitment is between 30 – 60 minutes a week for a period of 4 or 6 weeks.
