There are so many factors to bear in mind, but the general rule to go by is that the more effort you put in, the quicker you will achieve what you want. This sounds obvious but in terms of music it is very true!
Many students prefer to learn in a private lesson as it is one to one for the entire half hour and they find they are able to progress quicker in this format.
That said, some students find learning in a group motivates them to practise more in order to perform at the same level as their colleagues. Our tutors are all highly skilled and do everything they can to make a group lesson suitable, relevant and useful to all their students.
We are a registered examination centre for Rockschool, so students are able to take their exams in a familiar environment if they choose to study and grade with the Rockschool exam board.
If you’d rather learn a few chords and how to play a couple of your favourite tunes then that’s also fine!
Music isn’t just about the long term, there is absolutely no harm in just coming for lessons to enjoy playing and learning in the moment. And with our amazing team here, we’re sure that you will enjoy every visit to Breve and develop more with each lesson.
This means your child can start learning from around 4 years old, and it goes without saying how beneficial being exposed to creative art at a young age is. Music has been proven to have a positive impact on memory skills, hand eye co-ordination, social abilities, as well as sparking creativity just to mention a few.
Breve Music stocks a great range of instruments and we are proud to have knowledgeable staff who can help you to choose the right option, fitting you and your budget.
Since we do not run on a school term basis, you may start and stop your music lessons at any time during the year. If you are on our contract based weekly schedule, you must give 4 weeks notice before stopping your lessons.
If you choose to go down this route, do keep in mind that our school is very popular so we can’t promise to have a free lesson slot every time you call!
Due to Breve Music being a working storefront between 10am and 6pm, our music lessons usually take place upstairs away from the shop. The ground floor of Breve Music fronts onto the Asda supermarket car park and is fully wheelchair accessible. After the store closes at 6pm, up until 8pm we are able to provide music tuition on the ground floor, should the first floor facilities not be accessible.
