Online Music Tuition

You can gain additional UCAS points for entry to higher education

Music exams taken through the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM), Trinity College of Music and Rockschool from grades 6-8 can attract 5-75 UCAS Tariff points. Trinity College London also award 35 UCAS Tariff points for Gold Arts Awards. Many higher education course providers use a UCAS Tariff points total in their entry requirements achieved by converting qualifications such as A levels (and many others) into points to allow them to compare applicants.

‘Playing an instrument’ can be used to achieve a Duke of Edinburgh Award (DofE)

Playing an instrument is one of the most popluar activities used by students to achieve their Duke of Edinburgh Award. A DofE Award is an excellent way to demonstrate the skills developed through extra-crricular activities, particularly when applying to universities.

Online music tuition can be a cost-effective and practical way of reaching young people in schools and at home during this difficult time.  Providing you have broadband, we can offer you instrumental tuition for those children and young people in your own home.

For those children and young people attending school because their parents/carers are considered essential workers, we can offer on-line tuition through your school.

So whether you have to stay at home or you are attending school, the following applies to you.
