About First Tutors: Music

First Tutors: Music is a UK-wide web-based service that allows you to find the right music teacher for your music tuition needs. Use our search tool to find teachers of your choice based on their qualifications, experience and feedback ratings; contact that teacher through our forums to arrange times and dates of your music tuition, and then enjoy top class music lessons wherever suits you; either at home, the music teacher's home or over the internet. We collect at least two references on all of our music teachers and run them through ID checks, so you can concentrate on what really matters: your music lessons! Our sister site, First Tutors: Academic, has been catering for students seeking private tuition since 2005 and has been recognised in The Good Schools Guide as well as winning industry awards. To find out more about First Tutors: Music and how we operate please visit our tutees and parents section, our music tutors section or read more about us.

Getting Started

First Tutors offers a very quick and simple process to get you started. Begin by searching our vast database of music teachers; from where they live and what they studied to how much experience they have and how they can best cater for your needs. Then use our secure platform to share diaries with private tutors, discuss music plans and syllabi and arrange the best location for your private tuition; be it at home, your music teacher's home or online! Pay our one-off fee of 50% of the tutors hourly rate to connect and begin your lessons. There are no fixed term commitments and no hourly commission; just private tuition! And we are always on-hand to help along your musical journey should you need any help or advice.

Why Private Music Tuition?

"Music gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination..." as Plato said. To learn music is to access something greater than oneself, to experience one of the most profound aspects of the human experience. For children, music lessons with skilled music teachers can increase their confidence and furnish them with a life interest, as well as giving them an appreciation of one of education's most rich and rewarding disciplines. Visit our tutees and parents section to learn more about music tuition.

Alternatively, if you are an adult seeking music lessons, it may be that you've always wanted to pick up a guitar, have a passion for Spanish or classical music or want to stretch yourself and learn something new. Our music teachers can help you develop a new talent as well as continuing to help those musicians looking to polish and prepare for music exams, concerts and recitals.
