Try before you buy
Your first lesson is a try-it-out lesson. Meaning you can try us out, and you only pay if you decide to continue. Risk-free & easy!
All ages + levels
We welcome all ages (5+) and experience levels. You're never too young, too old or too inexperienced to learn an instrument.
We teach guitar, vocals, piano, drums, bass, violin, viola, saxophone, clarinet & flute. Plus we're continually adding new instruments.
We're open til 8pm and over the weekend, so no matter how busy your week is, we'll be able to find a time that suits you.

|What age can a student start?
Generally we recommend ages 5+ but it depends greatly on the individual, and the instrument. Technique is the biggest factor when considering instruments at a young age. For example, the technique required to play a violin is more advanced that that of a piano.
Do you take beginners?
Absolutely! We've helped bring many new-comers into the world of music.
Do you hire instruments?
We don't do it ourselves, but we can put you in touch with trusted companies that can arrange Instrument Hire for you.
How does a normal lesson work?
We tailor each lesson to each individual student, but generally, we'll strike an even balance between learning technique & theory, and working towards playing music you enjoy.
What if I'm not talented enough to learn an instrument?
There's really no such thing as natural talent, there's only people who perhaps started a little earlier than you. Everyone has to work hard over a long period of time to master any artform, and music is no different.
|Do I need to provide my own instrument?
To attend a Try-It-Out lesson, you can arrange the use of one of Walther Music's instruments, however we would strongly recommend that you purchase or hire your own instrument if you decide to continue.
How do I pay for lessons?
If you decide to continue after your first Try-It-Out lesson, you can sign up for Recurring Billing, where your weekly fee will be debited automatically each week after the lesson.
How much effort does it take to learn an instrument?
That's a tricky one, but it all comes down to what you want to do on your instrument and your time-frame. If you just want to learn as a hobby, 15 minutes practice a day will see steady improvement, but if you want to go from beginner to professional, you're looking at 2-4 hours a day over a few years. Regardless of what you want to do, however, getting lessons always speeds up this process.
Can you teach me ____ style/genre/song?
Yes, and whilst all our tutors have a solid grounding in all types of music, we have specialist tutors who will be able to assist you if you are interested in a particular genre or style.
