Their method is thorough and instructive, which helps build a solid foundation for kids to develop their interests and skills in playing piano or guitar. Their combined skill, experience and love for music makes the instructors highly qualified.

His teacher is assertive as well as upbeat providing a positive and nurturing environment. I highly recommend this Studio."

"My son has a new appreciation for guitar after we started going to Steve for classes. I feel Steve is in tune with what age group he is teaching & keeping them focused and enthusiastic with their achievements. He has helped Ronith understand music & persevered to maintain his flow of learning & improving steadily. I wouldn’t want to change anything from our dose of music flowing through our house, thanks to Steve's help"

"Our 10 year old son Kosta, has been learning piano with Angus since June 2014 and we have been really happy with his progress. Angus is a gifted teacher who quickly established a wonderful rapport with Kosta. The lessons are well structured: intense, vibrant and personalised. Our son looks forward to his weekly lessons and enjoys playing and practising at home. We now incorporate guitar tuition in our son’s weekly piano lessons and this has enhanced both his playing and his music theory. We are really impressed and grateful to Angus and recommend him to anyone who really wants to learn to play piano and guitar; you will not find a better teacher in Melbourne"

Nola M - parent

"This year I decided I would pick up the guitar again after many years of occasionally getting my guitar out to strum a song or two. I looked for a local teacher and fortunately, for me at least, found Adyn.
Adyn has been a very patient and tolerant teacher and even though my fingers are not as supple as they once were he has shown me a whole new technique and a new reason to enjoy playing. Adyn is very talented and can teach across a wide range of instruments and music styles. As a student he will challenge you but he will keep you within your own level of comfort to provide the encouragement that I in particular need.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Adyn, or any of his talented team, to anyone considering learning an instrument for either pleasure or for something more serious."

Stephen W - student

"As a "mature aged" student the team at the music school have got me playing tunes with my kids in just 6 weeks. They've rekindled my interest in music. Always a pleasure to turn up for lessons to hear anything from singers, young guitarists or pianists engaging with their teachers."
