Expert Music Career Mentoring

There’s more to being a musician than the playing (although playing is definitely the best part!)

Many of our music students have fantastic academic achievements and brilliant skills on their instrument, but there’s more to musical life than this.

Our coaching sessions seek to provide a musician with key guidance on how to make their way in life. This is something that schools and universities sadly forget to address.

Our mentoring sessions are designed to clarify goals and set actionable plans in place in order to take musicians to the next level.

Our coaching sessions are delivered by musicians with over 10 years experience in coaching and mentoring musicians.

Some examples of some great achievements by our successful ex-students and mentorees, in no particular order…

  • Entry to the Royal School of Music
  • Becoming an independent music tutor
  • Music Scholarships at Private Schools
  • Grade 8 and Diploma Achievements
  • Entry into Oxford/Cambridge using music as additional skill set/UCAS

  • Starting their own band, leading to large scale gigs around the UK
  • Recording their own album
  • Deciding to start busking locally, raising their profile
  • Starting work as a tutor for Tempo!

The ideal candidate for these sessions would be a semi-professional or professional musician looking to open doors and get to the next level, but also committed hobbyists looking to form or join bands, record their music and become a better and more effective musician and person.
