Expert Guitar Lessons at Affordable Prices in Northampton
The brother and sister team of Chris and Elizabeth Sommerfield are both Music Graduates who specialize in classroom and individual teaching. Both work extensively in schools (both primary and secondary students) and also have a wealth of experience teaching adults. Many of our students have gone on to study music at university.
Their aim is to provide music tuition in a fun, relaxed atmosphere, whether working towards grades or just for the enjoyment of it.
Lessons are held in our studio during term time.

The music that students WANT to play is always taken into consideration, but technique and theory also play an important part in lessons to create a well rounded musician.
