Live to Play

When students come through our doors – with varying skill levels – we want to ensure they feel they can meet their limitless potential. This extends to students interested in pursuing a career in the music industry. With experienced instructors on hand, and a trio of owners with a combined 76 years of professional industry experience themselves, students will find they are very much at home in tailored lessons which will encourage their passion for music and growth as musicians.

In our Live To Play stream, students are expected to hone their skills through regular home practice, participation in exams, competitions, festivals, and when necessary partaking in specialized courses or workshops. We focus on performance, composition, and administration of a music career alongside the studies of your preferred instrument(s). All Live To Play courses cultivate musicianship and promote a career in music: from producing and arranging music, to full on stage performance, to session recording, or to the classroom, we have the skills and the motivation to help you make a fulfilling lifestyle and a career from music. Let us show you how!
