At Barnes Music, we know that music enriches life.
People of all ages benefit from music’s ability to relax, stimulate and express the self.
Learning how to play music is an experience that no one should miss and at Barnes Music, you can do this in the hands of tutors who have extensive performance and teaching experience.
Whether you are a parent wanting to give your child the gift of music, a musician with sights set on a professional career, or a mature age student who has always wanted to learn, Barnes Music can provide the experience and education that you need to meet your goals.
Since 1980, Barnes Music has been offering personally-designed music education. We believe that music education should be thorough but still fun. This is why we offer a number of different packages and various opportunities throughout the year for students to aim towards and grow through, while also enjoying themselves.
Barnes Music offers many opportunities for all students including:
* Annual Concert – all students are given the opportunity to put what they have learned into practice in November, when Barnes Music takes to the stage at “The Dungeon”. This gives all students a taste of performing, the chance to perform as part of a group/band, workshop and rehearsal time with experienced performers and tutors. An annual gig at a fully-professional venue.
* Band workshops – all students are given the opportunity to take part in a “Band Jam Day” (mid-year). These jam days give students a taste of working as a group and the chance to enjoy what their instrument is designed to do! In the past, these “Band Jam Days” have been very successful and have provided excellent motivation for the students involved.
*Exams – all students are given the opportunity to prepare for a practical and/or theory exam each year. All teachers are qualified to prepare students for classical or contemporary exams. We find these exams an excellent way to provide a thorough musical education, but we also understand that they are not for everyone. It is each students choice as to whether they would like to participate in these exams.
*Recording – at various times of the year, students are recorded within their lesson in order to keep a log of their progress and also as keepsake for the student. Recording is an excellent way of learning through hearing a students progress and where their playing could also improve.
