MusicStation Guitar Lessons
We teach guitar in small groups (up to 6) as it encourages teamwork, develops the ability to perform in front of others and to learn from each other. The students enjoy working together and the group lessons also help to encourage regular practice because students do not want to fall behind. Click Here For More Information On Group Lessons
The MusicStation guitar tutors are all highly trained enthusiastic teachers and performers.
When the students have reached the required level they will start on the Trinity Rock & Pop graded exam syllabus.
The Trinity Rock & Pop syllabus starts from Initial Grade, then Grade 1 to Grade 8.
This syllabus contains real songs from new and classic rock & pop artists, including Radiohead, David Bowie , Michael Jackson, Bruno Mars etc…

From grade 6, students will gain UCAS points that can help to access the best universities. High marks from grades 7 and 8 are equivalent to an A Level.

One of the joys of learning and playing popular music is that creativity is just as important as technique; there is also improvisation that is often missing from classical music education. We think that these areas of self-expression are challenging, important and healthy for all of our students to experience.
MusicStation now helps to run two jam nights. The last Thursday every month at the Half Moon in Hildenborough. This is a full band jam session with all equipment provided. You can come along to just watch or let your teacher know if you would like to take part. We also do an acoustic jam night night at The Punch and Judy in Tonbridge. Under 18s are welcome at both venues if they are accompanied by an adult.
