Music Lessons at Victoria Avenue School

MusiqHub ​are excited to offer private guitar, drum kit and keyboard tuition to students at Victoria Ave School with experienced tutors ​JP Carroll, Nick Douch and Barry Lee. ​Students learn a range of traditional and contemporary styled songs and techniques where they play together as a group and take turns to play to the group as individuals. This format creates a fun environment for students and is hugely popular in schools around the country.

About MusiqHub
Musiqhub are a nation wide group of independent music teachers that use a proven teaching system to ensure excellence in instrument tuition. MusiqHub teachers host lessons for a wide range of instruments, and our programmes cover all age groups and musical abilities from beginners to those about to make the big time.

About Our Lessons
Learning music requires the development of skills and knowledge along with the retention of prior learning. With this in mind MusiqHub has developed a structured curriculum that utilises a sequential lesson process. Skills in the physical ability to play are developed alongside an understanding of music. Songs and activities are provided for reinforcement.
To find out more, email ​[email protected]​, or visit the Musiqhub website.
