For The Love Of Music

Foradult beginnerswho want to learn how to progress, perform and produce music.

Covid Compliant

Due to Covid all sessions are now taking place via Zoom. So it's easier than ever to get involved.

Welcome To The Band Academy

The Band Academy is about taking a unique approach to learning and performing music. We specialise in Guitar, Bass and Singer-Songwriting. I don't know who said it but I love the quote "Music is the sound of emotion". Learning music is about developing enough skill, enough artistry enough physical and technical freedom to allow yourself to express yourself.

If we start here with this expansive and exciting pursuit of musical expression then who knows how good you could be and how much enjoyment you could have learning and playing music with The Band Academy.

So What Makes Us Different?

I have been a teacher, instructor, and coach in various subjects and disciplines including music for twenty years and this experience has provided me with a unique approach and set of tools for helping my students advance.

The Band Academy can help you develop the technical ability to progress on your instrument and the theoretical knowledge to understand musical composition, we can also help you develop your creativity and confidence in performing.


One To One's are at flexible times

Beginners Class Every Monday Starts at 18:30pm

Advanced Class Every Tuesday Starts at 18:30pm


Develop your physical technique and dexterity with exercises and practice schedules designed for you to improve in a focused and efficient manner. Technique for technique's sake is not what we are about, we keep things musically focused.


Creativity is about running with an idea that has a buzz. It's about creating momentum and allowing inspiration to flow. Learn how creativity is exciting, invigorating, life-enriching as well as seeing how it can produce great musical ideas.


Performance for many is a real threshold. Learn how to become more comfortable in this area by taking small steps outside of the comfort zone until finally, you can fully express yourself no matter the audience.


Learn how to interact with band members and put together a set. Enjoy the positive social engagement that the band academy is all about.

Music Theory

Gain a practical understanding of music theory in a way that frees up your creativity and musical instinct. Music theory is not boring it is a fantastic subject that will massively improve your playing and writing.


No matter what musical instrument you are learning, it is helpful to be able to sing in pitch. Singing in front of people is another threshold that can be overcome by learning simple techniques and remembering you are in the same boat as everyone else.

Beginners Welcome

The Band Academy is designed for adult beginners in guitar, bass and singer-songwriting. We are creating a culture which is about helping each other get better and welcoming new people.

It's all about creating a thriving community of friendly musicians that are continually improving in all areas of music, simply "for the love of music".
