Instrumental and Vocal Tuition

We offer one-to-one music tuition of the highest standard from a team of experienced tutors.

Tuition on a wide range of instruments and the voice is available, and children and adults of all ages are welcome to take up lessons with us.

Lessons are held at our main centre located within Galeri Caernarfon, as well as our branches at Theatr Twm o’r Nant Denbigh and Capel Tabernacl Ruthin.

If of interest to the student, our tutors can help prepare their students towards music exams. Exam boards that our tutors use include the ABRSM, Trinity College London and Rock School.

We’re also proud to enrich our students educations further by providing various performing opportunities, group Theory of Music classes, ensembles, workshops and masterclasses.

Facilities

The majority of the lessons at our Centre within Galeri Caernarfon takes place in high quality soundproof rooms. Lessons are also given in rooms at Theatr Twm o’r Nant Denbigh and Capel Tabernacl Ruthin.

We have good quality pianos, pedal and lever harps, drum kits and a marimba for the lessons, and amps are available for electric guitar tuition. For tuition on other instruments you will need to bring your own instrument with you. Please get in touch if you’d like further guidance. We also have a small collection of instruments that we can huire out to our students.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much do the lessons cost?

We allow our tutors to set their own tuition fees at the beginning of each academic year. As a result, the fees vary between our tutors.

To give a general idea, on average, the lessons are around £35.30 (hour), £17.65 (half an hour), £11.77 (20 minutes).

Is it possible to receive help to pay for the lessons?
We’re very grateful to the Friends of CGWM charity for providing a Bursary Fund to help young students with lesson fees.

Please visit the Friends of CGWM page for further information.

How often are lessons held?
We follow the pattern of the school term, so usually there aren’t any lessons during the school holiday.

In order to ensure continuation for the student, the majority of our students come for lesson on a weekly basis, but lessons once a fortnight are also an option. We have some students who come occasionally only – contact us to discuss possibilities.
