Instrumental Lessons

I offer lessons on Piano, Electronic Keyboard, Violin, Viola, Singing and Music Theory.

Lessons are available to any age from 5 years upwards, depending on the instrument. Currently some of my most rewarding and motivated students are adults.

All lessons start at 30 minutes long, Hour long lessons may be available for students beyond Grade 5 level, or anyone wishing to learn two separate instruments.

An appropriate instrument to practice on is a necessity, if you are unsure please get in touch for more advice and information on purchasing or hiring something suitable. Please be aware that you will also need to purchase relevant music as advised in the lesson.

I enjoy devising individual and flexible programs of work, every Ruthven Music student will have a unique list of aims and goals which we will set out to achieve by working out a comprehensive and exclusive schedule of progress.

Many students also find it rewarding to work through the Grade system, once they reach a suitable level.
There are several different exam boards, ABRSMTrinityRockschoolTrinity Rock&Pop and LCM to name a few. The most appropriate exams to work for will be chosen depending on the style of music the student is most interested in and the instrument they play.
