The A.Mus.Ed team consist of talented musicians who offer one-to-one lessons for instrumental learning at our school. In addition, our school provides you with the opportunity to study any music instrument from the comfort of your home through online lessons or private lessons at your house.

Our main principle is that students get quality education and tutoring on their instruments without chasing the exam mentality. Having said that, should the student wish to take exams, we are more than able to prepare him or her successfully.

Music making should always be an enjoyable procedure - this being the main moto of our school.
