Learning music is not just practice, it’s the experience of performing.


What is Musicstart?

A New Approach to Music Tuition

Great for kids, Safe for kids

At Musicstart, we believe that students of all ages learn faster when learning is fun. As well as the serious business of one-to-one tuition, music theory and music exams, we encourage our students to take part in group performances and activities. We aim to provide the live performance experience and the opportunity for students to get together and share their ideas.


Musicstart is a new approach to music tuition and is situated in the north east of England. We teach most instruments including music theory and all of our highly qualified teachers have been specially selected for their ability to communicate their knowledge.


Young people gain much more from learning to play a musical instrument than simply the music. It teaches discipline, perseverance and the ability to work with others. It is also a skill that may open many doors in later life.


A Place to Learn, A Place to Practice

We now have ‘Musiclounge’ in Stockton which has great facilities for lessons, practice and even band rehearsals. So, if you prefer not to have lessons at home or you have nowhere appropriate to practice, feel free to ask how we can help.

If the instrument you wish to learn is not listed – give us a call.

We will do our utmost to provide a suitably qualified teacher for you. We are consistently adding new teachers and finding the best way to provide the services that you require. Our students are encouraged to be part of creating a new kind of music tuition by sharing their ideas and requirements with us. We listen. We evolve. Join us.
