Music Lessons

For children who attend the schools (apart from Kings College), music lessons are available during the school day on a rotating timetable. This means a slightly different time each week so that the same academic lesson is not missed. 

For children at other schools (or for children at the above schools who prefer not to have lessons during the school day) we have music lessons after school and on Saturdays! (Dorking, Guildford and Walton-On-Thames only).

Free Taster Lessons!

Open 2 Music offers ‘Free Taster Lessons’ where pupils get a full half hour music lesson in their chosen instrument! Parents can then be sure their child will enjoy their lessons, and ask the teachers any questions they may have. Please contact us for current available slots!

Very short waiting listsMusic lessons are weekly and run from Monday to Saturday (Saturdays in Dorking and Walton-On-Thames only). We offer half hour lessons in small groups (depending on demand) and individual lessons. Lessons can be started at any time during the term, subject to availability.

At Open 2 Music we are proud that we have very few children on a waiting list, the majority of pupils are able to start lessons immediately. This sets us apart from many other music services where pupils are often waiting months if not years before being able to start lessons.
